Abstract

This paper deals with the issue of two-way traffic between on the one hand, language resources that have been conceived from a local perspective, i.e. from within a local project or institution, and on the other, a shared framework conceived from a global perspective that supplies such resources for local re-use or enhancement. We believe that a key enabler to such traffic is the choice of an appropriate sharing platform, and here we illustrate the point with respect to a constellation of EU projects that is attempting to enhance the quality and scope of shared resources, and a local project that has some already-developed local functionality. The paper first introduces the underlying projects, then goes on to discuss the proposed platform (U-Compare) whose use is then illustrated for a small module developed for a local project.
