Abstract

The EASTIN Portal - which aggregates the contents of six national databases and make it searchable in 22 European languages - is currently the major information system on assistive technology available in Europe. Its usability has been recently improved through the use of advanced language technologies, thanks to the EU-funded project EASTIN-CL. The project developed three main components (the query processing, the machine translation, and the speech output) that have been implemented and plugged to the existing EASTIN website.
