The Metadata Records Translation Project


"Enabling Multilingual Information Access to Digital Collections: An Investigation of Metadata Records Translation" is a two-year research project sponsored by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the University of North Texas (UNT).This project represents a collaboration of four entities: The Department of Library and Information Sciences in the College of Information at UNT; the UNT Libraries Digital Projects Unit (DPU); the School of Information Management at Wuhan University, China; and the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico (UAEM) in Mexico. It aims to evaluate the extent to which current machine translation technologies generate adequate translation for metadata records, and to identify the most effective metadata records translation strategies for digital collections.
