Meeting Description: 'The Value of Language' is a one-day users' conference whose main theme is the value of language: value created by language products, language services, linguistic expertise, linguistic research, etc.

Users of language services and products will demonstrate how they actually use a language service or product and how they thereby create value for themselves, their organisation, society, etc.


The conference programme includes an exhibition where developers and suppliers of language services and products will offer additional information at their stands.

Target Group:

“The Value of Language” is meant for everyone who has a professional interest in language services and products, would like a better insight into their use, and wishes to get a lot more out of them.
