European Language Industry Survey to be localized

The latest version of the European Language Industry Survey (ELIS), which will be launched on 7th January 2022, will be available in multiple languages for the first time since it was launched 9 years ago.

ELIS will be using the EUSurvey tool developed with funding from the European Commission. The Machine Translation technology behind the tool allows for the questionnaire to be localized. Fifteen members of the EUATC are currently working on Post Editing the questionnaire.

EUATC research lead, Rudy Tirry (right), comments that “having the questionnaire localized will greatly increase participation. The different language versions will be available to participants from a drop down menu.”

Once launched the deadline to complete the survey questionnaire will be close of business 31st January 2022.
