Dear All - I am happy to share that the Arab Acquis Corpus is now publicly available here: https://camel.abudhabi.nyu.edu/arabacquis/.

Arab-Acquis is a large dataset for evaluating machine translation between 22 European languages and Arabic. Arab-Acquis consists of over 12,000 sentences from the JRCAcquis (Acquis Communautaire) corpus translated twice by professional translators, once from English and once from French, and totaling over 600,000 words.

This resource was developed at the Computational Approaches to Modeling Language (CAMeL <http://www.camel-lab.com/>) Lab in New York University Abu Dhabi <http://nyuad.nyu.edu/>.

The paper describing the effort is published here:
