BABEL is a joint European project under the COPERNICUS scheme (Project #1304) comprising partners from five Eastern European countries and three Western ones. The project is producing a multi-language database of five of the most widely-differing Eastern European languages. The collection and formatting of the data conforms to the protocols established by the ESPRIT SAM project and the resulting EUROM databases.
