Supporting the acquisition of MT systems and necessary processing modules and related services for CEF automated translation
The short-term objective of actions under this lot is to support the acquisition of MT systems and necessary processing modules and related services for the purpose of building the CEF automated translation platform. The activities performed by the contractor will assist the European Commission (EC) in selecting tools and services which it will purchase for their use in the CEF automated translation building block. The action requested under this lot is not to purchase (except obtaining licences for evaluation use) the MT systems and processing modules, but to evaluate them in real-world situations and document the result of the evaluation. The systems to be evaluated include tools/services such as MT engines/services for specific language pairs and/or domains, tools/services for data pre-processing (terminology extraction, corpora cleaning, aligning, anonymising language resource datasets, etc.); tools/services for assessing ‘in-domain-ness/in-domain relevance’ of language resources, tools/services for assessing the quality of MT output, for post-processing of the MT output or for choosing the best MT engine for a given translation request, etc.
