SYSTRAN Sponsors Machine Translation Summit XII

World’s leading scientists, developers and users will gather in Ottawa to explore state of the art applications in today’s machine translation market

PARIS, FRANCE and SAN DIEGO, CA – July 2, 2009
SYSTRAN, the leading provider of language translation technologies, today announced it is a primary sponsor for the Twelfth Machine Translation Summit, organized by the International Association for Machine Translation and the Association for Machine Translation in the Americas. Microsoft and Multilingual Computing are also sponsoring this year’s conference, which will take place August 26-30 at the Château Laurier in Ottawa, Canada.

MT Summit XII will bring together scientists, developers and machine translation users from around the world. The conference will examine the most advanced trends and practical applications in today’s machine translation market. Emphasizing real-world deployments for both government and commercial users, MT Summit XII will include a Technology Showcase of systems and applications incorporating machine translation that is open to the public. Early registration for MT Summit XII is now open and will run through July 15, 2009, after which regular registration will be available through August 16, 2009.

Symantec, a global leader in providing security, storage and systems management solutions, will deliver one of the keynote addresses at the 2009 MT Summit. The presentation will focus on the results of a hybrid translation pilot project that was conducted in five language pairs (English to French, German, Italian, Japanese and Simplified Chinese). The technical and linguistic issues associated with hybrid translation will be addressed and metrics will be offered to demonstrate that machine translation quality can be improved by reusing existing translations. SYSTRAN technology has been used in production environments by Symantec for the last three years.

SYSTRAN provides enterprise translation products that meet customer needs. Earlier this year, SYSTRAN released SYSTRAN Enterprise Server 7, the first hybrid machine translation (MT) server available for enterprise use. Based on a combination of self-learning and linguistic technologies, SYSTRAN’s hybrid MT can save organizations a considerable amount of time and money, as well as making it possible for them to communicate more effectively with customers, partners and employees around the world.
