Towards the Primary Platform for
Language Technologies in Europe

Open Translation Models, Tools and Services

Short Name: OPUS-MT
Name: Open Translation Models, Tools and Services
Coordinator: Jörg Tiedemann, University of Helsinki
Project Runtime: 17 August 2020 – 31 July 2021
Funded by: European Language Grid
OPUS-MT will produce state-of-the-art neural machine translation models that can freely be shared, re-used and integrated in open web services and professional translation workflows. The project focuses on European minority languages and their improved support through multilingual NMT models and transfer learning. Furthermore, OPUS-MT will deliver easily deployable translation services and tools for quick domain-adaptation and on-demand personalisation. We emphasise open resources that can freely be distributed and used in research and professional applications. For the latter we want to offer local solutions that are independent of on-line services to avoid security risks with open data transfer.
