With the most advanced neural translation technology on the market and backed by an extremely dynamic Open Source community, SYSTRAN has long been a leader in translation technology developments.

This partnership with Nuance unlocks multilingual capabilities for omnichannel, multi-source content understanding enabled by Nuance’s transcription engine, but more importantly, the ability to develop innovative applications leveraging multilingual speech2speech technology.

With over 50 languages covered, these innovative solutions help global companies overcome language barriers and provide end-customers with tremendous competitive advantages in terms of collaboration, user-experience and efficiency.

One such solution is being developed for the transportation industry to provide a hands-free, speech2speech alert system for drivers to communicate and coordinate with ground staff in their own language and in real-time, while automatically generating event records necessary for compliance.

Gaëlle Bou, Head of Sales & Marketing at SYSTRAN, explains “SYSTRAN’s strategy is to bring state-of-the-art translation technology to a wider variety of business applications and end-users, way beyond text translation. By opening up neural translation and combining it with Nuance Conversational AI solutions, our technology is on its way to becoming a mainstream commodity that will redefine the global communication capabilities of corporations and individuals.”

Real-time multilingual speech capabilities will change how humans interact with technology through the best-in-class applications and a multi-lingual user experience. A simple conversation with the application will achieve the desired outcome, ultimately helping individuals and companies make faster, better informed decisions.

“At Nuance, we are working with thousands of organizations to reinvent the relationship between people and technology. In many real-world situations, the ability to generate fast and accurate transcription can have an immeasurable impact. SYSTRAN will use Nuance conversational AI solutions combined with state-of-the-art machine translation to enable their customers to go the last mile by breaking the language barrier” said Scott Wickware, VP Enterprise Sales EMEA at Nuance.
