OCR, Classification, Machine Translation


OCCAM (OCR, ClassificAtion & Machine Translation) responds to action line "Integration projects" on the integration (and extension) of CEF (Connecting Europe Facility) Automated Translation into multilingual digital cross-border services. The Action proposes the integration of image classification, Translation Memories (TMs), Optical Character Recognition (OCR), and Machine Translation (MT) to support the automated translation of scanned documents - a document type that currently cannot be processed by the CEF eTranslation service.
OCCAM will develop two use cases: (i) the Business Registers Interconnection System (BRIS) use case and (ii) the Digital Humanities use case.
