Health in my language


Lingea has been participating in an important language project, which is coordinated by the prestigious University of Edinburg and supported by the EU under the Horizon 2020 programme. 

The project runs from February 1st, 2015 to January 31st, 2018. Its aim is to make public health information available in a wider variety of languages by using fully automatic machine translation. By using recent advances in machine translation we will create and deploy a system for the automatic translation of public health information, with a special focus on meaning preservation. In particular, we will include recent works on domain adaptation, translation into morphological rich languages, terminology management, and semantically enhanced machine translation to build reliable machine translation for the health domain. The aim focuses on creating usable, reliable, fully automatic translation of public health information, initially testing with translation from English into Czech, Polish, Romanian and German. In the HimL project we will iterate cycles of incorporating improvements into the MT systems, with careful evaluations and user acceptance testing.
