The Linguatec triangle of language technology
The translation program Personal Translator works with the intelligence of neural networks - a completely new hybrid technology with an international patent pending. Personal Translator is available as a single-user, network and intranet version in German, English, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish. The renowned Fraunhofer Institute certifies that Personal Translator results in a time saving of 40% compared to the conventional process of translation. 85 of the top 100 companies in Germany are already using PT.
Linguatec has brought a new generation of speech synthesis software to market with its new speech output program Voice Reader. Based on state-of-the-art TTS technology and controlled by linguistic pre-processors, text is converted to stunningly natural and pleasant speech sounds. In this way, any kind of text (e-mails, news reports, PDFs etc.) can be read out by a friendly animated speaker on a PC, or on the move on an iPod, mobile phone or MP3 player. This isn't just convenient; it's also efficient, as a study by the University of Regensburg demonstrates: Listening is better than reading, aand combining reading with listening actually increases retention of information by 44%.
Linguatec's speech recognition program Voice Pro (only available in German) has been voted number one by Germany's leading consumer protection group "Stiftung Warentest". TThis program is based on IBM's tried-and-tested ViaVoice technology and supports the software's recognition capability with a high-quality digital headset. Specialist solutions for doctors and lawyers are also available. Using Voice Pro with Olympus dictaphones facilitates mobile dictation.
