2016 CEF Telecom call - Automated Translation (CEF-TC-2016-3) CEF-TC-2016-3-Automated-Translation Closed!


The projects of this call will contribute in particular to:

  • enabling the Digital Single Market by lowering language barriers;
  • supporting the effective roll-out and wider acceptance of pan-European Digital Service Infrastructures (DSIs); and
  • realising a significant potential for savings in translation costs in the public sector and ensuring a higher level of security.


The priority outcomes of this call for proposals are:

  • to stimulate the language resources collection for specific domains of interest to specific pan-European public services (CEF Digital Service Infrastructures (DSIs)  or other public sector services relevant to the CEF DSIs or to the Digital Single Market in general) in order to improve the quality and coverage of automated translation offered by CEF Automated Translation platform. The projects should build on the results and awareness raised through the Language Resources Coordination mechanism 3 of the 2014 work programme 4 and other earlier studies
  • to integrate, use and extend the Automated Translation platform in other relevant multilingual, cross-border European digital services, including:
    • CEF DSIs or other public services of direct importance to and/or connecting with the CEF DSIs
    • projects aimed to foster the adoption of the multilingual best practice and architectures in public services (for example, by adapting the architecture of such services in order to benefit from the Automated Translation Building Block)
    • projects benefitting from Automated Translation which promote the emergence of the Digital Single Market (e.g. in areas such as cross-border eCommerce).
