PARIS, FRANCE and SAN DIEGO, CA-April 21, 2009
SYSTRAN, the leading provider of language translation technologies, today announced unique enhancements to its free online translation service, SYSTRANet. In addition to its long-standing ability to translate text and Web pages, SYSTRANet now translates syndication (RSS) feeds from around the world.
SYSTRANet gives users real-time access to foreign language information in more than 13 languages and over 40 language combinations. In addition to translating Web pages, websites, simple texts and common computer files, SYSTRANet makes it possible to quickly create a personal dictionary that supersedes standard dictionaries during the translation process. This allows the user to customize the program’s vocabulary, resulting in translation results superior to conventional online offerings. Additional new cutting-edge features include interactive translation capabilities, such as translate as you type, dictionary search, and alternative meanings so the user can select the most appropriate translation.
“Conversations are now taking place on a global scale, and SYSTRAN continues to lead the industry in delivering innovations for online translation services,” said Dimitris Sabatakakis, CEO of SYSTRAN. “Syndication feeds are the most widely used method for automatically obtaining online updates related to blogs, news sites and social media tools such as LinkedIn. By providing a way to easily translate RSS feeds, SYSTRANet is making it possible for people to gather information from an almost limitless number of sources around the world. Language is no longer a barrier.”
Since the beta version launched last month, thousands of new users registered for the free SYSTRANet translation service. Now fully deployed, the SYSTRANet user experience is unrivalled when compared to other online translation services.
Given the global nature of the web, translation needs on the Internet continue to increase at a fast pace. Travel, shopping, email exchanges with friends, family and business contacts in different countries, the search for relevant information, and the list goes on. Users quickly discover the value-add of machine translation products with SYSTRANet. Power users can select from the SYSTRAN product range of desktop products and server solutions that offer publishable translation quality with rich features such as integration with Microsoft Office applications, web browsers, and a robust dictionary manager and translation project management tool.
