Pangeanic – PangeaMT are proud to announce the successful conclusion of their Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) project 2016-EU-IA-0132 after the final presentation at Public Administrations in Madrid (Spain). iADAATPA-MT-Hub will provide a single access point to several vendors, thus making it easier to adopt machine translation for EU Public Administrations.

iADAATPA (Intelligent, Automatic , Domain-Adapted Automatic Translation for Public Administrations) became MT-Hub , which will be launched on February 28th. This solution has been designed by a consortium of machine translation vendors (KantanMT, Prompsit, Tilde) led by Pangeanic – PangeaMT with Everis and Dublin City College as partners. The platform will provide machine translation for EU Public Administrations and support the European Commission’s efforts for technology adoption and modernization of EU Public Administrations’ digital infrastructure. The mission of the project was the provision of a highly secure (AS/4-compliant, Domibus) and scalable infrastructure service serving as a Digital Service Infrastructure (DSIs).

The development of the programme was the work of the iADAATPA consortium, which received funding by the European Commission’s Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA Grant No. INEA/CEF/ICT/A2016/1331703). It was the largest financial investment CEF had provided to date for machine translation technologies and related infrastructures. It is acknowledged as being a milestone investment in the future of Neural MT for the European Union.

iADAATPA becomes MT-Hub, Machine Translation for EU Public Administrations

Beyond the 4 commercial partners involved in machine translation (Pangeanic, KantanMT, Prompsit, Tilde, Everis and DCU, with support from Public Administrations in Spain (Valencia’s regional Goverment “Generalitat” Open Data and Transparency Department, as well as Spain’s agency Segittur and the authority for language technologies and Digital Advancement at Public Administrations, SESIAD). Partner Tilde involved the Lithuanian Parliament as a user of the service. MT-Hub is designed to accelerate pan-European connectivity, improve access to digital services by promoting the use of machine translation for EU Public Administrations, facilitate interoperability between digital services and link national infrastructures to the existing core EC’s eTranslation services.

Manuel Herranz, PangeaMT’s CEO stated: “iADAATPA has marked a no-turning-back point for our history. The challenge was massive as we had to overcome commercial and architectural preferences. But it has been a wonderful challenge and levels of professionalism very high. All development teams have worked well in synch and the Everis has been very professional in their testing and management, finding the potential deployment scenarios for the platform. We are delighted that we have successfully reached the target as set by CEF.”

Pangeanic – PangeaMT have been in charge of the security features of the platform and overseeing the good development of the architecture, with coding done at KantanMT. The ALPHA version of the platform was released in April 2018, which was followed by release of BETA in September 2018. Being a EU-funded project, the code for this new technology platform is currently available to the Open Source Community at https://github.com/iADAATPA. It is available under the GNU General Purpose License v3.0.

The following major technologies are included in the platform:

  • Automatic Domain Detection and Translation request routing
  • Language Detection
  • RESTful SDK (Software Development Kit)
  • Private browsing of web pages
  • Synchronous & Asynchronous translation capabilities
  • AS4 Domibus security
  • Marketplace for machine translation vendors to provide domain specific and generic engines to Public Administrations
  • A range of CAT Connectors for: SDL TRADOS, MateCAT, Drupal, OmegaT, OpenCMS, Browser Plugins.
