LT-Observe is a service layer of the LT-Innovate portal. It is the result of the LT-Observatory project, a CSA under the Horizon 2020 programme, GA No. 644583.

Currently, it focuses on three main services:

The Public Policy Observatory aims at providing information about public policies and funding sources. It is divided into 4 sub-sections:  EU language policies, National language strategies, EU funding opportunities, and  National (or regional) funding opportunities.

The Language Resources Observatory is intended to become a one-stop-shop catalogue of user-friendly language resources (LRs) based on existing repositories and suggesting new ways to make LRs seamlessly available to LT/MT professionals.

The MT EcoGuide provides practical guidance through the "ecosystem" of LR, MT and LT. Created in modules for the use of different stakeholders (MT and LT developers, decision makers, end users and general public), it answers FAQs and helps users to make the right decisions regarding the accessibility and use of LRs, to find funding programmes, and to learn how LT can help make the Digital Single Market multilingual.

In addition to the three core services, LT-Observe provides News in three different news channels:

LangTechNews (language technology news worldwide), CITIA news (conversational interaction technology news) and LangPolNews (European language and language-related policy news).
