Graphic squiggles


Sevi joined News Labs as the Editorial Lead for Language Technology in 2020, after more than 20 years in global media. Drawing on her experience as a BBC journalist, translator, interpreter and project manager, she seeks to facilitate seamless multilingual media production, with a particular focus on BBC World Service. Her most recent project GoURMET (under EU's Horizon 2020 programme) trained custom machine translation models in 16 under-resourced languages. The work spurred the development of a multilingual solutions suite, shortlisted for a BBC News Innovation Award in 2021.
