As 2018 comes to a close, I’d like to convey my heartfelt thanks to all of the staff members who have contributed their time and effort to the innovative projects we have undertaken together this year. You’ve made a difference, and we truly could not do this without you. Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2019!

New Neural MT combinations
DeepL has added Russian to the language combinations available for neural machine translation, and a new engine, Tencent, has been incorporated into eLUNa on a trial basis for Chinese language combinations.
Update on gText migration to the cloud
Users continue to test and are progressively migrating their work into the new MS Azure cloud environment at conferences.unite.un.org. We will continue to fine-tune our new space with feedback from all colleagues and focal points.
