St. Petersburg, August 26, 2003 - PROMT, the leading provider of machine translation technologies, PROMT is announced today the start of new www.Online-Translator.com, the world leading free site of online machine translation.

What is new at www.Online-Translator?

  1. Higher translation accuracy.
    The new machine translation technology PROMT XT is in the "heart" of renewed www.Online-Translator.com . This technology is based on PROMT Internet Translation Server announced last week. Thanks to the new technology the translation accuracy of www.Online-Translator.com has become substantially higher.
  2. New service "Dictionary At Hand" - the main point of new technology.
    It is well known the words in every language have different meanings and may be translated in various ways according to text topic and context. If a word has several translations, it is not reasonable to show them all in the translated text. The new multidimensional dictionary architecture makes possible to store all the translations of any word. The some translated are marked as active and are used in translation process, other are marked as passive or additional and are not in use for current translation.
    Secondly, the every dictionary entry could have references - additional information and comments. It helps to understand better what the word translation should be used. See the fig. 1 for screen shot of information the word "bank" (English -> Spanish translation).

    The detailed description of the new service is here >> .
    The multidimensional dictionary architecture was applied for the first time at @promt translation family systems released this spring at CeBIT 2003. In opposite to online version the dictionary architecture in @promt systems allows to change entry information: any passive translation could be made active and vice versa, add comments.

  3. New translation direction - Russian-Spanish.
    Now the users have the capability to translate in following directions: English <-> German, English <-> Spanish, English <-> Russian, French <-> Russian, Spanish <-> Russian and Italian -> Russian.
  4. The virtual keyboard is also renewed. The new functions makes the virtual keyboard more useful.
