EntX accurately extracts key words and named entities out of foreign language documents, enabling efficient triage, categorization and concept search. EntX provides these entities, such as proper names and places, both in their original language and in English. EntX also supports English user-defined categories, to allow taxonomies and ontology's developed in English to be directly applied to the information in the source languages.
Britannica language analysis suite integrates with dtSearch Engine APIs. First, the BMA adds morphological capabilities to the indexing and query process. Second, the BMA’s external thesaurus and ETL can be plugged in through the dtSearch Engine APIs for implementing multilingual synonym and cross-language search. Third, Britannica’s EntX can be integrated with the dtSearch Engine through C++ and Java APIs. Sample code for all of these levels of integration is available by contacting Britannica.
“We are delighted to partner with dtSearch and provide state of the art foreign language solutions for our customers,” says David Litoff, Director of Business Development, Natural Language Division, Encyclopaedia Britannica. “Britannica’s morphological suite seamlessly integrates with the dtSearch Engine developer APIs, enabling users to use English language queries to search for foreign languages, overcoming morphological complexity and ambiguity. All methods enable smooth and transparent integration, adding Britannica’s language capabilities while maintaining the full range of dtSearch’s flexible search capacity. The transparency of the search integration ensures that any interface provided by dtSearch, whether programmatic or through a graphic UI, is available when using the integrated product.”
“We are very excited to work with Encyclopaedia Britannica’s Natural Language Division,” said Elizabeth Thede, Vice President of Sales. “Applying Encyclopaedia Britannica’s linguistic expertise will be a great help to dtSearch customers requiring advanced searching of text in Arabic and other Middle-Eastern Languages.”
