This paper describes a collaborative European project whose aim was to gather open source Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools and make them accessible as running services and easy to try out in the European Language Grid (ELG). The motivation of the project was to increase accessibility for more European languages and make it easier for developers to use the underlying tools in their own applications. The project resulted in the containerization of 60 existing NLP tools for 16 languages, all of which are now currently running as easily testable services in the ELG platform.
