Multilingual Processing in Eastern and Southern EU Languages
This volume draws the attention to many specific challenges of multilingual processing within the European Union especially after the recent successive enlargement. Most languages considered are not only "less resourced" in terms of processing tools and training data but have also features which are different from the well known international language pairs.
The 16 contributions address specific problems and solutions for languages from south-eastern and central Europe in the context of multilingual communication, translation and information retrieval.
