Abstract

In the proceedings of this workshop we bring together participants who have solutions for one or more of the following problems: How can mutual understanding be optimized with the help of technology in hospitals where both patients and professionals have varying language skills, cultural backgrounds and cognitive capacities? Can domain ontologies, natural language processing tools, multilingual knowledge-based tools, multilingual terminology resources and other semantic technologies be combined in order to enhance the quality of mutual understanding between humans? Can technology optimize the usability of some resources such as multilingual web apps?
The papers presented report on recent developments, achievements, and research results on projects concerning the optimization of understanding in multilingual hospital encounters and the possibilities of applying web-based technologies to this end.
