“ACCEPT enables us to develop innovative and new ideas to improve machine translation, especially in the field of community-generated content, and to convert these ideas into actual technology,” explains Dr. Melanie Siegel, Head of Research and Innovation at Acrolinx.  Read the full announcement here.
