Dear Readers of the ELRC Newsletter,

Welcome back from a hopefully nice and relaxing summer break! Now that almost everyone is back in the office, the next ELRC Country Workshops are already around the corner: on 29 September, we will first travel to Romania, then we will head to France on 20 October. The workshops are targeting national representatives from the public sector, academia as well as language technology/language service providers and SMEs. Are you living in France or in Romania and fall within this target group? Then check out the corresponding workshop pages (workshop in Romania and workshop in France) in the Events section (https://lr-coordination.eu/events) of the ELRC website and register for our free virtual events, which will bring you closer to the current status of Artificial Intelligence, Language Technology and language data management and sharing in your country!  

But there is even more: For public administrations and EU officials, ELRC will also organise a workshop with a more technical focus. The technology workshop “Simplify language – Capture Audience” will take place on 24 September from 10:00 to 16:00 CEST and give an overview on software, techniques, and procedures for text simplification, for measuring the readability of texts and for implementing controlled language by restricting vocabulary and grammar.
