Language Technology

Language technology, often called human language technology (HLT), studies methods of how computer programs or electronic devices can analyze, produce, modify or respond to human texts and speech.[1] It consists of natural language processing (NLP) and computational linguistics (CL) on the one hand, and speech technology on the other. It also includes many application oriented aspects of these. Working with language technology often requires broad knowledge not only about linguistics but also about computer science.

The Globalization and Localization Association (GALA), maintains a directory of language technology and software for translators and localizers.[2]

For many of the world's lesser known languages, the foundation of language technology is providing them with fonts and keyboards so they can be written on computers or online.
