Through more than 30 partnerships with publishers throughout the world, we have added dozens of languages and many datasets to our licensing portfolio, from Hungarian and Polish to Korean and Vietnamese. Our global perspective and experience in handling complex language data mean these companies increasingly come to Oxford for a single solution to all their language needs.
