Human Language Technology (HLT)

Dutch is one of the leaders in the field of Human Language Technology (HLT). In order to ensure that computers can understand and produce Dutch, the Taalunie has stored tens of thousands of spoken text and millions of written words digitally in the Centrale voor Taal- en Spraaktechnologie (Centre for Human Language Technology). This HLT Center is accessible to researchers and businesses.

The HLT Center ensures that prototypes for applications are developed and brought into use, preferably for the government, for education and for the health sector.
