With the growing internationalization of business and education and the fast-developing presence of languages other than English on the Internet, we tend to increasingly read and write in several languages. This multilingual aspect of data and documents needs to be professionally managed, in particular to align concepts and terminology, to avoid work repetition and data loss, to facilitate cross-language information retrieval, etc. Although various open source tools are already available in the field of computer-assisted translation and cross-language information retrieval, there is no professional, integrated solution allowing to manage the complete multilingual aspects from the level of documents down to sentences, chunks and terms. Olanto is a Foundation whose mission is to build such an integrated suite of linguistic tools. Those tools will be aimed in priority at professional translators, but they will probably be of great use also to most multilingual knowledge workers. In this presentation we will introduce the Olanto Foundation and we will demo some of the tools already available from its website.
Notes : More detailed demos can be performed after the presentation if this is of interest to anyone. Please feel free to contact us after the talk.
