Making Europeana Collections more multilingual is a priority and so we were delighted to take part in an event on 24-25 October with the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture and cultural heritage institutions on the topic of multilingualism. The two-day event at the Hanaholmen Culture Centre, Espoo, Finland, titled ‘Multilingualism in Digital Cultural Heritage - needs, expectations and ways forward’ was carried out under the umbrella of the Presidency of the Council of the European Union, which is currently being hosted by Finland.
In collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Culture of Finland and under the auspices of the Finnish Presidency of the Council we are jointly organising the meeting on multilinguality in the digital era and Europeana.
Everyone should know what they can do with the works they discover through Europeana Collections. This is the basic premise that drives our work to help data partners apply the most appropriate rights statements to the objects they publish. What if we made the information we publish about copyright and reuse available in your native language? Would it make it easier for you to understand and share?
