How can we bring down language barriers across the EU, while preserving and nourishing language diversity? Language is a key element of national identity, but language diversity creates barriers for communication and business across Europe. Language technologies can eliminate the barriers to create better understanding. The Language Shore initiative brings together researchers and industry for break-through innovation to promote diversity and unity in a multilingual Europe.
