About the European Language Grid

European LT business is dominated by thousands of SMEs and a few large players. Many are world-class, with technologies that outperform those of the global players.

However, European LT business is also fragmented – by nation states, languages and sectors. This is why the European Language Technology landscape and community has not been able to reach its full potential yet. We will address this challenge by establishing the ELG as the primary platform for Language Technology in Europe.

This is Release 2 of the European Language Grid, launched in early 2021. The main functionalities and the design of the user interface are already available, even if the platform is constantly being improved and extended. The final release (Release 3) will be launched in mid 2022. The platform already include many functional LT services, data sets, corpora, resources, and models, and new ones are added every day.
