At the Milipol exhibition in Paris, SYSTRAN and VOCAPIA Research combine their language processing technologies to provide intelligence professionals with a streamlined solution for automatic translation of audio data available in over 45 languages.

Fighting terrorism and enhancing cyber security are two key themes at the 19th edition of the international exhibition on internal state security to be held at Paris-Nord Villepinte from November 17th to the 20th. SYSTRAN, the world leader in language translation software, and VOCAPIA, offering leading-edge speech technology, will exhibit side by side in the Transmission, Communication and Interception sector, at a joint stand (5G247 and 5G241).

Actors in the homeland security sector more than ever need to have the multilingual and efficient intelligence capabilities of OSINT and COMINT, in particular for Eastern and Middle Eastern languages.

Therefore SYSTRAN and VOCAPIA have decided to combine their technological expertise in order to offer a seamless audio transcription and automatic translation solution to professionals in the security sector. With this solution it is now possible to transcribe an audio file in Arabic, for example, and instantly receive an English transcription.

A demo designed specifically for the exhibition will allow visitors to see how the companies’ combined expertise can process a large volume of audio files to quickly detect critical information and understand it regardless of language. To improve translation quality, SYSTRAN uses custom-tailored models that have fulfilled the quality standards of many intelligence agencies in Europe, the U.S. and the Middle East.

In addition to our translation tools, customers are increasingly requesting technology to process audio files,” notes Gilles Montier, Sales Director at SYSTRAN. “By combining Vocapia’s and our language processing expertise it is easier to search and index multilingual information.”

By incorporating SYSTRAN’s automatic translation in our solution, we add an indispensable feature for understanding multilingual audio content, allowing our customers to take informed actions.” adds Bernard Prouts, President of VOCAPIA.
