The determination of the category and the translation approach are based on the context derived from the group of isolated noun phrases.
Herndon, VA (PRWEB) January 23, 2013
Ntrepid Corporation announced today that the U.S. Patent Office has issued Ntrepid a patent covering its system for translating foreign language data in structured data sources.
The invention, awarded patent number 8,306,807, is a processor and memory system that can determine the data category of a group of isolated noun phrases in a structured data source (such as a spreadsheet or database). The system can then translate the group of isolated noun phrases from a source language to a target language using a category-driven translation approach.
“The determination of the category and the translation approach are based on the context derived from the group of isolated noun phrases,” explains Jen Doyon, one of six co-inventors and Director of Language Engineering at Ntrepid Corporation.
The patent covers the technology in Virtus Translator, Ntrepid Corporation’s natural language processing (NLP) product. Virtus’s highly user-customizable translation engine rapidly processes large volumes of data in structured data sources, providing companies and organizations with significant time and cost savings. Ntrepid provides translation modules supporting unidirectional translation from Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Persian, Russian, or Spanish into English.
Ntrepid Corporation holds two other patents in the United States and Australia, including U.S. Patent no. 8,332,626 for a method and apparatus for authentication token-based service redirection, and Australian patent no. 2005321876 for a system protecting identity in a network environment.
Ntrepid Corporation provides a number of technology solutions that solve operational challenges in the areas of Internet operations, information management, analytics, linguistics, and tracking. Product information is at http://www.ntrepidcorp.com.
