The Multilingual Tools Language Observatory is a collection of selected translation / interpretation / language learning/language assistance tools with the objective to survey and classify these tools in order to recommend these for use in the implementation of language policy.

The selected tools are surveyed and categorised against a list of criteria such as: Context in which they should be used; Potential audience; Specific strengths; Specific weaknesses; Cost; Ease of use; Quality.

As a result of this collection, an evaluation report together with specific recommendations in terms of usability is available and there is a possibility for a broader public to comment on the results.
