The goal of this workshop is to promote synergies between the BioNLP community and the Machine Translation community, by addressing issues of common interest, such as the following (but not restricted to):
Production of multilingual corpora in the biomedical domain.
Creation of multilingual biomedical glossaries and ontologies.
Extension of the coverage of the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) to languages other than English.
Building of MT systems adapted to the biomedical domain.
Dealing with localisation issues, including adaptation to local varieties of international languages (UK vs USA English, Spanish from Spain and Latin America or USA, etc.).

and in general:
Extraction, representation, interoperability and integration of specialised multilingual resources,
Development of novel tools to overcome serious limitations of coverage of non-English lexical sources and components.
