The Laboratory participated in a series of research programs (EURADIC / Technolangues Pythagoras I, development of a spellchecker, improvement, enhancement and creation of a corpus of texts, etc..).
The objectives of the laboratory are

  • The promotion of theoretical reflection of translation and translation research,
  • The development of computational tools for automatic analysis and natural language processing,
  • Collaboration with various organizations in the work of translation (not professional and volunteer) in Translation and Natural Language Processing, the results can be used in research or who may have specific social,
  • The organization of scientific meetings and events,
  • Publication and editing of scientific studies,
  • The provision of services, in accordance with the regulations, with municipal or private state agencies.
