The ACTRES team

ACTRES (Contrastive Analysis and Translation English-Spanish in its Spanish acronym) started as a long-term research enterprise at the Department of Modern Languages of the University of León, Spain and the CITTAC (Centre for Research on Bilingual Terminology, Specialized Translation and Contrastive Analysis in its Spanish acronym) at the University of Valladolid, in co-operation with scholars from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/ EHU), the Complutense University (UCM), the University of Ottawa, Canada, and with engineers from the Computational Language Unit (UniComputing) at the University of Bergen, Norway, the University of León and Miguel de Cervantes European University (UEMC).

An essential part of this long-term goal is the active collaboration with agents in the food processing industry, particularly quality wine producers and gastronomic businesses.

ACTRES is currently funded by the Spanish Agency for Research, Development and Innovation (Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness), project FFI2009-08548 and the Regional Government of Castile and León, Spain, project LE227U13.
