ELRA - European Language Resources Association
The Mediterranean Language Technology Centre,
MLTC, launched by ELRA & ELDA in Rabat, Morocco
ELRA & ELDA to promote Human Language Technologies (HLT)
for the Mediterranean Languages thanks to the MLTC centre.

The project of the creation of an organisation similar to the
European Language Resources Association (ELRA) was
initiated by ELRA & ELDA, to promote HLT in the Mediterranean
countries and encourage research and development in this area.

The Mediterranean Language Technology Centre (MLTC) centre
was officially launched at the end of year 2001. It is located in Rabat,
Morocco, where a partner team has been set up.

Since its creation, MLTC has been working closely with ELRA & ELDA
to handle every aspect related to the resources and processing of the
Mediterranean languages, in the framework of some European and
international projects. The centre will also be responsible for a number
of other activities and tasks outsourced by ELRA & ELDA.

Thanks to the MLTC centre and our involvement in the various sectors
covered by HLT, we expect to foster research and development in HLT for
all the Mediterranean languages.
