The Port of Barcelona (Autoritat Portuària de Barcelona: www.apb.es) comprises a large network of facilities and services spread out across the Barcelona region and offers comprehensive logistics services.
During October, the Port of Barcelona installed the Lucy LT machine translation solution for translating short texts, documents and Web pages between Castilian Spanish and Catalan. The solution is available to any user connected from within the APB intranet.
The system is now in productive use. In a later phase, APB is looking into expanding the system, adding Catalan <-> French and Catalan <-> English language pairs. In addition, they plan to integrate the machine translation system into their content management system.
