The Research Department Language Technology consists of two labs: The Berlin LT Lab, headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Sebastian Möller, and the Multilingual Technologies Lab in Saarbrücken, headed by Prof. Dr. Josef van Genabith.
Our mission is to advance the use of human languages by machines and to create and improve IT-solutions that benefit from language use.
Key areas of activity include text analytics, machine translation, human-robot interaction and digital content creation.
The Lab carries out research, development and commercial projects on all themes of computational linguistics and language technology.
A major outcome of a European key project the Lab has been coordinating is the network of excellence META-NET, which strives for a strategic alliance for creating the technologies and applications needed for making the linguistic diversity of our multicultural society sustainable.
Many projects focus on three key areas:
Other project themes of importance include social signal processing, speech synthesis, opinion mining and trend analysis.
The Language Technology Lab provides a variety of community services.
The Survey of the State of the Art of human language technology provides a comprehensive overview of the field to students, researchers, and industry.
For specific interests in Japanese linguistics, a bibliography is available and maintained.
