Objective

LIRICS addresses the needs of today's information and communication society where globalisation and localization necessitate multilingual communication creating an increasing need for new standardization as well as urgent recognition of existing de facto standards and their transformation into de jure International Standards. LIRICS thus aims to:

- Provide ISO ratified standards for language technology to enable the exchange and reuse of multilingual language resources;
- Facilitate the implementation of these standards for end-users by providing an open-source implementation platform, related web services and test suites building on legacy formats, tools and data;
- Gain full industry support and input to the standards development via the Industry Advisory group and demonstration workshops;
- Provide a pay-per-use business model for use by Industry and in particular SMEs validated during the project for the benefit of all actors in the content and language industries.

LIRICS will deliver a portfolio of standards for ratification by ISO including:
- A metamodel for lexical representation;
- Metamodels and data categories for morpho-syntactic and syntactic annotation;
- Reference data categories for semantic annotation;
- Test suites in nine European languages;
- An open-source implementation platform, compatible with major legacy systems and tools.

LIRICS will increase awareness of language engineering standards and promote their take-up on a European scale.
