KantanMT Introduces New Legal Stock Engines
15th April, 2013, Dublin, Ireland: Xcelerator Machine Translation Ltd. announced today the introduction of Legal Stock Engines on the KantanMT machine translation platform. Legal Stock Engines are collections of bilingual training data sets specifically tailored for the legal sector which will enable members to build larger, higher quality KantanMT legal engines in faster time.
This is the first in a series of domain specific stock engines that KantanMT will release over the coming months. Members can use Legal Stock Engines as language foundation data by combining it with their own training data. This helps build larger training sets for their KantanMT engines. The quality performance of these engines can be evaluated using KantanWatch™ and deployed into production in a faster time frame.
What is KantanMT™?

What is Xcelerator?
Xcelerator Machine Translations Solution is a new start-up that is focusing on making Machine Translation easy to use, inexpensive to access and available to mid-sized LSPs that are eager to integrate MT into their client’s localisation workflows. Xcelerator is focusing on the growing number of small-to-medium sized language service providers (LSPs) that want to – or must – offer machine translation to their clients.
Recent research on pricing shows that while a very small percentage of translation agencies use MT on every job, nearly a quarter of small LSPs, and more than half of medium-sized LSPs, will apply it if requested to do so by their clients. However, most providers don’t have the technical expertise to install an MT solution, train engines for their clients, and integrate it with their workflow. Xcelerator aims to fill that gap.
