San Jose, CA (PRWEB) February 16, 2010
myLanguage, Inc., the leading provider of crowd-sourced language translation applications, has updated its flagship application to include Haitian Creole support. The update is available for free and immediate download from the Apple App Store.
“We are pleased to provide this update and hope it allows aid personnel in Haiti an easy way to communicate with Haitians and provide Haitians with the aid they need effectively,” said Andrew Lauder, chief executive officer and founder at myLanguage. “Anyone with an iPhone or iPod Touch, and network access can download the application from the Apple App store for free and start using it immediately.”
What separates myLanguage from other translators is that it isn't just offering translations, but also collecting data and user feedback on them. So when anyone makes a translation, they can rate how it worked or make a suggestion. myLanguage's internationally diverse team can then select and organize the data and make the necessary improvements, while improving accuracy.
“The first step towards helping people communicate, is improving upon the current language database,” said Lauder. “That is where each person around the world who uses the translator comes in; each suggestion and rating feedback on each machine translation will help improve the context of the entries, thus improving their accuracy. Our goal is to eventually support all the languages in the world with the help of our community”.
