Translations and Open Science: new reports released

The reports of the exploratory studies for creating a technology-aided collaborative translation service dedicated to open scholarly communication were released on April 15, 2024. 

Funded by the French National Fund for Open Science, the studies were conducted as part of the Translations and Open Science project under the coordination of OPERAS. They involved some 70 experts from the scientific community, all profiles combined (researchers, publishers, dissemination platforms, translators, librarians, PhD students, research-support roles, etc.)

The general report provides an overview of the four studies, which were intended to lay the foundations of a scholarly translation service combining digital language resources, assisted translation technologies and human skills. The general report also includes links to the detailed reports and resources produced as part of each one of the four studies: 

  1. Use case study for a technology-aided collaborative translation service dedicated to scholarly communication (link to the detailed reports)
  2. Mapping and collection of scientific bilingual corpora (links to the produced bilingual corpora and glossaries)
  3. Machine translation evaluation in the context of scholarly communication (link to the detailed reports)
  4. Operating model for a technology-aided collaborative translation service dedicated to scholarly communication (link to the detailed report)

Combining technical and ethical considerations, these reports aim to encourage open discussions to improve the visibility of academic translation and to promote sustainable use of translation technologies supporting multilingualism in scholarly communication.
