Thursday, 6 June, 2013

Xcelerator Machine Translation Ltd. is pleased to announce the release of over 28 new bi-directional stock engines on the KantanMT platform. The new series of stock engines which includes both Medical and Financial sets are available in multiple language combinations and will enable members to build larger, higher quality KantanMT legal engines in faster time.


“Adding Stock Engines to the KantanMT platform is just one of the ways we are trying to increase value for our members,” said Tony O’Dowd, Founder and Chief Executive at KantanMT.com. “Our promise is to continuously develop features to make the machine translation process as easy and hassle free as possible.”


KantanMT Stock engines are collections of highly cleansed bi-lingual training data sets which can be added to member’s client data to produce much larger, more powerful engines. In total, over 50 Stock Engines, totalling over 1 billion words are available Free on the KantanMT platform. KantanMT currently has over 2,000 registered members, many of whom have incorporated stock engines in their MT strategy as a means of time and cost savings.


One company using KantanMT stock engines notes that, “Since signing up with KantanMT, they [we] have been able to take on more work and increase their [our] capacity levels”.

What is KantanMT™?

KantanMT is a cloud-based implementation of Moses statistical Machine Translation technology. Leveraging the power and flexibility of the cloud, KantanMT effortlessly scales to generate a high-quality, low-cost Machine Translation platform for small-to-medium sized Localisation Service Providers.

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.
