General Country Information 

Languages: Polish is the official language in Poland, laid down in Art. 27 of the Polish Constitution.

Co-offical Languages: Poland has no co-official language but recognises national and ethnic minority languages and facilitates their use in schools of local communities. The governing bodies are legally obliged to support activities for the maintenance and development of the minority and regional languages. Poland signed and ratified the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages.

Language Strategies: Poland has quite a long history in language technology research and development that dates back to 1967 with the creation of the corpus of frequency dictionary of contemporary Polish by an interdisciplinary team of researchers from the University of Warsaw.
In the first decade of this century, the project National Corpus of Polish was started, with the goal to create the biggest Polish project, including the first Treebank for Polish.

Recently (October 2015), Poland launched an internationalisation campaign for its universities, to attract foreign students and professors. The website "Go Poland!" of the Minsitry of Science and Higher Education is available in 10 languages: PL, EN, FR, DE, PT, ES, RU, Arabic, Chinese and Ukrainian.

Poland has a number of excellent centres active in the field of language technology and computational linguistics. Currently at least 12 Polish universities and research centres are active in the field. Many of them offer courses in the field of language technology. Apart from the universities, major research projects are carried out by the language technology group of the Institute of Computer Sciences of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
