The Internet is still English-oriented; this
being the case, there is not a lot of thought put into tackling
computational problems that arise out of certain linguistic traits of non-English languages. Yet
these languages are widely used over the Internet, Intranets and e-mail communication. Solutions
for searching non-English texts and analyzing non-English speech are badly needed.
specializes in professional search and analysis environments such as
large text archives. In these environments, rich NLP technology is
even more in demand than over the Internet.
Melingo's role is to
bridge the gap between these languages and the Internet; Whether its
Hebrew, Spanish or Hindi - some languages need that extra analysis
in order to provide good search tools, and applicable speech products for
cellular access to the Internet.
Melingo's vision is to become the leading firm in
the development of language and speech technologies and the supply of
natural- language-based products, solutions, and services for Semitic
languages and other morphologically complex languages.
