European Data Portal: Machine Translation for Metadata
October 9th 2017 14:00 - 14:20
The data economy is a fundamental component of our globalised world and a pillar of Europe’s Digital Single Market. As more and more datasets are made available, more barriers arise that may come to limit their re-use and thereby their value. Multilingualism is a key feature in enhancing the discoverability of data. The European Data Portal offers access to over 750,000 datasets spread across 30+ countries. It uses Automated Translation to translate information about each data set into 24 languages.
