State of the Union: The Next Generation of NLP

test1

In 1968, during the height of the Cold War, our nation’s intelligence organizations and military were working to decipher and understand Russian communication threads coming through their offices. Answering the call, SYSTRAN was born. We provided the vital translation software that our nation’s security forces required in order to do their job effectively.

Back then, we were providing our services through the IBM mainframe. Thankfully technology got smaller and more advanced, allowing SYSTRAN to move into several different areas. With the advent of the PC, we developed a product that people can use on the desktop, translating text into 130+ language combinations, enabling real-time multilingual communication across the globe.

Then recently, just in the last decade, we experienced further advancements through the smartphone. Speech recognition software along with the smartphone provided a plethora of breakthroughs. For example, SYSTRAN developed S-Translator, the official translation solution on the Samsung Galaxy S and Note series. Now if you’re in a taxi in Korea you can use your phone to tell someone where to go without speaking a word of the native language.

Is Your Team Violating Data Compliance Laws with Online Translation Tools?

It happens all too often: employees unknowingly put their company at risk of a security breach by putting confidential information where it doesn’t belong.

In 2015, The Open Security Foundation estimates that there were 1,472 incidents involving the theft or exposure of personal, confidential or proprietary data in the United States alone. Many of these incidents involved the leak of personally identifiable information, including names, birth dates, email addresses, social security numbers, bank account information, home addresses, employment records and even income data. Millions of customers, patients and employees have been affected by these leaks.

Despite IT’s diligence in protecting data, many times employees are the ones putting the data at risk. According to a study released by the Identity Theft Resource Center, approximately 15 percent of data breaches in 2015 were caused by employee error or negligence.

You asked, we developed: Introducing SYSTRAN Relativity Connector 2.0

Relativity_Ecosystem_Orb_DS

In 2014, we joined the Relativity Developer Program to create a connector between Relativity and the SYSTRAN Enterprise Server 8 allowing users to quickly and securely translate multilingual documents. We debuted the SYSTRAN Relativity Connector at Relativity Fest 2014. During the event we got a lot of great feedback from Relativity users about the translation features they needed most during the eDiscovery process.

Well, we took note and after Fest got straight to work! So without further ado here’s what’s new with the SYSTRAN Relativity Connector 2.0:

Added support for the most recent versions of Relativity

The SYSTRAN Relativity Connector 2.0 is compatible with Relativity 9.0, 9.1 and 9.2.

Translate a document containing multiple languages

Based upon your feedback, you now have the ability to translate a document containing multiple languages. This feature was designed for but not limited to e-mails in various languages linked together into a single document. This feature also includes advanced filtering of URLs, dates and e-mail addresses to allow for faster, more accurate detection of languages within the document.

Auto-detect multiple languages and view source languages

In the first release of the SYSTRAN Relativity Connector you had the ability to specify the source language used in the document or select Auto-Detect. This is still true but now with the capability to translate multiple languages within a single document, you have the option to select Auto-Detect Mono-Lingual for documents with a single language or select Auto-Detect Multi-Lingual for documents that contain multiple languages. You can view all the languages detected in the translated documents within your workspace under the Source Languages column.

SYSTRAN for kCura Relativity Connector 2.0 Auto-Detect

Even faster!

Multiple translation requests can be done simultaneously – all working at the same time, independently.

SYSTRAN Queue

Added security permissions

You now have added protection of the translation process with security permissions keyed to the SYSTRAN tabs. To put it simply, you have the option to change user settings to prohibit certain users from performing the translation. They can still see the documents before and after translation.

Permissions setup

Export feature for billing

The export feature allows you to load SYSTRAN Queue data into a CSV spreadsheet for billing purposes. You can file by date and time, identify specific documents, or bill upon a workspace basis.

More to come…

Our translation technology is ever evolving and dependent upon your feedback. We look forward to chatting with you at Relativity Fest 2015!

Want to see a demo?

SYSTRAN is partnering with kCura for a webinar. During the webinar JP Barraza, VP of Operations at SYSTRAN, will show you the SYSTRAN Relativity Connector 2.0 in action! To be notified when registration is open, simply contact us.
