The Department of Language Science and Technology was established in 2016, bringing together the  former departments of "Computational Linguistics and Phonetics" and "Applied Linguistics, Translation and Interpreting".

Our research and teaching span many areas of language science and technology, including computational linguistics, psycholinguistics, speech science and technology, language technology, corpus linguistics, and translation science and technology.

The department has a long tradition of joint research and teaching with Computer Science, Cognitive Psychology, and the Philologies at Saarland University and collaborates with many other institutions both nationally and internationally.
