European Association for Machine Translation

The European Association for Machine Translation (EAMT) is an organization that serves the growing community of people interested in MT and translation tools, including users, developers, and researchers of this increasingly viable technology.

EAMT is one of three regional associations of the International Association for Machine Translation. Its sister organizations are the Association for Machine Translation in the Americas and the Asia-Pacific Association for Machine Translation.

As part of its activities, EAMT organizes workshops and conferences, such as the bi-annual MT Summit, and the annual EAMT conferences or workshops.
