Aim and scope

The Gender-Inclusive Translation Technologies Workshop (GITT) is set out to be the first workshop that focuses on gender-inclusive language in translation and cross-lingual scenarios. The workshop aims to bring together researchers from diverse areas, including industry partners, MT practitioners, and language professionals. GITT aims to encourage multidisciplinary research that develops and interrogates both solutions and challenges for addressing bias and promoting gender inclusivity in MT and translation tools.


GITT invites technical as well as non-technical submissions, which consist of experimental, theoretical or methodological contributions. We explicitly welcome interdisciplinary submissions and submissions that focus on innovative, non-binary linguistic strategies and/or with sociolinguistically-informed perspectives. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Models or methods for assessing and mitigating gender bias
- New resources for inclusive language and gender translation (e.g., datasets, translation memories, dictionaries)
- Social, cross-lingual, and ethical implications of gender bias
- Qualitative and quantitative analyses on the potential limits of current approaches to gender bias in translation and MT, error taxonomies as well as best practices and guidelines
- User-centric case studies on the impact of biased language and/or mitigating approaches which can include translators, post-editors, or monolingual MT users

GITT is also open to other non-listed topics aligned with the scope of the workshop and works focusing on non-textual modalities (e.g., audiovisual translation)


We welcome three types of submissions:

- Research papers: of at least 4 up to 10 pages (including references)
- Extended Abstracts: up to 2 pages (including references)

Accepted papers and extended abstracts consisting of novel work will be published online as proceedings in the ACL Anthology.

- Research Communications: up to 2 pages (including reference)

We include a parallel submission policy for papers accepted in other venues in 2022. Research communications will not be included in the proceedings, but will serve to promote the dissemination of research aligned with the scope of the workshop.

Submissions should adhere to the EAMT 2023 guidelines and style templates (PDF, LaTeX, Word) and be uploaded on EasyChair


During the workshop, there will be a guided discussion starting from examples of gender bias in MT output collected via the DeBiasByUs website.
Attendees are invited to contribute their own examples beforehand via DeBiasByUs.
More information about the project and the activity can be found on the WS website.
