TraMOOC (Translation for Massive Open Online Courses), a Horizon 2020 collaborative project aiming at providing reliable machine Translation for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), is coordinated by Humboldt Universität zu Berlin and its Consortium brings together 10 partners from 6 European countries.
The main expected outcome of the project is a high quality machine translation service for all types of educational textual data available on a MOOC platform. The service will support 11 target languages, 9 European and 2 BRIC*. The core of the service will be open-source, with some premium add-on services which will be commercialised. Open source will turn the MOOC translation service into a platform that will enable the integration of any machine translation (MT) solution in the educational domain, for any language.
TraMOOC project begun in February 2015 and will conclude its activities, having a lifespan of three years, in January 2018. The total budget of the project is approximately 3M€, partially funded by the European Commission under H2020-ICT-2014/H2020-ICT-2014-1 (Grant Agreement number 644333).
