EASIER – Intelligent Automatic Sign Language Translation – is a Horizon 2020 project that aims to design, develop, and validate a complete multilingual machine translation system. The system will act as a framework for barrier-free communication among deaf and hearing individuals, where users of various European sign and spoken languages will be able to use their preferred language to interact with each other. Additionally a platform to support sign language content creation will be provided.
EASIER is a consortium of 14 partners from eight European countries. The team includes representatives from the industry, higher education and research institutions, non-governmental organizations, and SMEs.
