The current paper outlines the ELRC-SHARE repository, an infrastructure designed and developed in the framework of the European Language Resource Coordination action with the objective to host, document, manage and appropriately distribute language resources pertinent to machine translation, and specifically tailored to the needs of the eTranslation service of the European Commission. Due to the scope of the eTranslation service which seeks to facilitate multilingual communication across public administrations in 30 European countries and to enable Europe-wide multilingual digital services, ELRC-SHARE demonstrates a number of characteristics in terms of its technical and functional parameters, as well as in terms of its data management and documentation layers. The paper elaborates on the repository technical characteristics, the underlying metadata schema, the different ways in which data and metadata can be provided, the user roles and their respective permissions on data management, and, finally, the extensions currently being implemented.
