*Summary*:
The Centre for Next Generation Localisation <http://www.cngl.ie> seeks 
to revolutionise the way people interact with content, systems and each 
other to achieve unprecedented levels of content access, process 
efficiency and user empowerment. Breakthroughs in the creation, 
processing, unification and integration of multilingual, multi-modal and 
multimedia content are needed to meet the needs of an increasingly 
mobile and multilingual society across global markets. CNGL will enable 
content to be created, discovered, translated and personalised, so as to 
efficiently and effectively deliver natural and engaging web-mediated 
interactions between users, organisations and communities regardless of 
language, device and preferences of the user.

CNGL is internationally renown for its strong, strategic mix of leading 
researchers in language, adaptive content, interaction and knowledge 
engineering technologies and its tight engagement with innovation-driven 
companies that work with content at a global level. CNGL has recently 
received further multi-million funding from Science Foundation Ireland.
