Save the Date: Translations and Open Science Days in Paris

In December 2023, the four exploratory studies of the Translations and Open Science project will come to an end. Funded by the French National Fund for Open Science and coordinated by OPERAS, the studies were designed to provide input for the creation of a scientific translation service combining language resources, technologies and human skills. 

In particular, the studies were focused on: 

  • mapping the current translation practices, tools and needs within the scientific community (researchers, publishers, librarians, etc.) and the related professions (for example, scientific and academic translators); 
  • training and evaluating specialised machine translation engines to assess their usability according to scholarly communication requirements; 
  • defining an ethical and sustainable framework to encourage translation activities in scholarly communication.

Looking forward to the publication of the study reports in 2024, the Translations and Open Science Days will provide the opportunity to share an overview of the studies and to get feedback from the community in order to plan future developments.

The event will be held in Paris on December 18 and 19, 2023.
