PROMT announced signing contract with DMPartners

PROMT, the leading provider of machine translation technologies, announced today contract signing with Document Management Partners, Belgium emerging software house specializing in the development, the application and the integration of linguistic technology for Intelligent Content Management and Knowledge Management.

According to the contract PROMT delivers machine translation solution PROMTR Translation Engine (PTE) that will be integrated into linguistic products of DMPartners. PTE seamlessly integrates into gist-level linguistics-based summarisation and search tools developed by DMPartners such as EssenceT. It means Essence enables a user to simply "walk through" the document without reading it from top to bottom. So multipage documents can be summarised into short and easily readable abstracts.

Integration with PTE machine translation solution enriches the DMPartners products with the ability to translate texts and web pages from English, French, German, Spanish, and Italian to Russian and back*. Thus, it makes document management more cost-effective - managers are able immediately get the gist of any document regardless the language it is written on. Moreover, users can enter the document in Russian and receive the translated summary in English without need to read the full machine translation version of the document.

"We see how the MT technologies open the new era in document management. Machine translation products of our company eliminate the last barriers on the way of productive and fruitful document processing and storing. Natural language processing technologies and machine translation technologies, in particular, will be the key points in IT technologies of the XXI century", said PROMT's President and CEO Svetlana Sokolova. "We are proud to license our translation engine to Document Management Partners, the leading company in integrating linguistic technologies in document management processes."

"Efficient Document or even Knowledge management is impossible without the appropriate machine translation technology", says Etienne Vierse, President and CEO of DMPartners. "Thanks to the state-of-the-art machine translation technology of Promt, we were able to make Essence as well as Scout available for Russian speaking users. People can ask their question to Scout, our linguistic search engine, in English and retrieve the Russian documents. Today, this technology is already up and running at one of our clients".

Now PROMT is the innovation leader in the field of machine translation technologies for European languages and its MT systems has been used in a broad range of industries, such as financial and banking, telecommunications, aerospace, automotive and manufacturing. For the last years PROMT has been leveraging its efforts on developing online translation solution and services.
