The Directorate General for Translation (DGT) has been developing since October 2010 a new data-driven machine translation service for the European Commission. MT@EC should be operational in the second semester of 2013. One of the key requirements is for the service to be flexible and open: it should enable, on one hand, the use of any type of language resources and any type of MT technology and, on the other, facilitate easy access by any client (individual or service). The speaker will present the approach taken and highlight problems identified, as pointers to broader needs that should be addressed.
