They targeted several business sectors, such as News, Broadcasting, Advertising, Publishing, Language Technology, Telecommunication Industries as well as Libraries, Archives and Public Administrations.

In early March, ELRC started the “Crisis response without language borders” initiative to support cross-border communication for helpers and refugees in the Ukraine crisis and to prevent both misunderstandings and spreading of misinformation across Europe. The plea for support, which was circulated by email, via social media and published on various websites, called for data donations of bilingual and multilingual corpora for Ukrainian to and from all EU official languages. Such data is essential to train easily accessible, free and fast automatic translation systems that can facilitate information exchange between Ukrainian and the EU official languages.
