World Class Language Technology: The Process of developing a Language Technology Strategy for Danish

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

Although Denmark is one of the most digitized countries in Europe, no coordinated efforts have been made in recent years to support
the Danish language regarding language technology and artificial intelligence. In March 2019, however, the Danish government adopted
a new, ambitious strategy for LT and artificial intelligence. In this paper, we describe the process behind the development of the languagerelated parts of the strategy: A Danish Language Technology Committee was constituted and a comprehensive series of workshops were
organised in which users, suppliers, developers, and researchers gave their valuable input based on their experiences. We describe how,
based on this experience, the focus areas and recommendations for the LT strategy were established, and which steps are currently taken
in order to put the strategy into practice.
