The research department “Multilinguality and Language Technology” (MLT) in Saarbrücken is headed by Prof. Dr. Josef van Genabith. MLT focuses on three thematic areas: Machine Translation (MT), Question Answering and Information Extraction Systems (QA/IE), and “Talking Robots” (TR).
In our research, machine learning as well as knowledge-based approaches are employed.
In addition to research and development projects, MLT is strongly involved in contract research and industrial projects. These include machine translation, text analytics and text classification, and question answering as well as information extraction and dialogue systems.
At Saarland University, members of the MLT group are involved in leading positions within multiple projects, including the collaborative research cluster SFB 1102 (Information Density, subproject B6), a Leibniz project on cross-lingual search (CLUBS), a DFG project on multi-modal interfaces for post-editing of MT results (MMPE), and the European Erasmus Mundus Master's program in Language and Communication Technologies (LCT).
