Presentation title: 
Enabling concurrent real time translation of syndicated news articles
Presentation description: 
EurActiv required an updated solution that would allow real-time translation of news articles into multiple European languages and presented this at the LT-Innovate Summit in Brussels last year. As a result a consortium including Tilde, EurActiv and XTM was formed to look for EU funding for this project. Tilde will provide the machine translation back-end while XTM, the multi-award winning translation management system from XTM International will provide the required integrated translation and workflow environment.
