Europeana Subtitled (1 June 2021 – 30 November 2022) brought together seven major national broadcasters and audiovisual archives from seven European countries. These partners provided more than 8,000 high-quality audiovisual materials to Europeana around the theme ‘Broadcasting Europe’. The records were selected to highlight social, political and cultural changes in Europe, from the 1930s through to the present day, as seen on television. Additionally, the project upgraded the licence of around 12,000 records allowing the reuse licence that allows the reuse of these videos.
The FBK’s MT research unit helped build the Europeana Subtitled AI pipeline. In particular, we adapted the AI technology in machine translation to produce automatic subtitles and closed captions from seven EU languages – Dutch, German, Greek, Italian, Romanian, Slovenian, and Spanish – to English.
