This global linguistic capability reconfirms AppTek’s position as an elite ASR and MT software provider that enables enterprise customers to integrate automatic text and speech translation into virtually any global communication or commerce application; for example, ecommerce companies who want to reach new markets or humanitarian organizations that provide support to geographically distinct populations.
This expanded offering results from AppTek’s capacity to quickly build machine translation systems using its recurrent neural network (RNN) architecture and extensive linguistic training data compiled over 30 years. The breadth of language coverage provides more options for customer deployments and translation models, and can also be tailored to a specific customer’s domain. AppTek’s continuous improvement cycle further provides customers with greater lifetime value and performance. Also, with its own streaming Automatic Speech recognition and MT, AppTek provides speech-to-speech machine translation for real time translation in cross-language conversational applications such as Talk2me®.
The company’s machine translation engine uses the latest advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning, pioneered by its own industry-renowned experts. AppTek was one of the first to offer an RNN-based machine translation solution both as a stand-alone customer installation and a cloud-based offering with application programming interface (API) access. Their machine translation systems are also designed to seamlessly integrate with speech-to-text systems, so that subtitling and captioning services can be provided in many languages. AppTek continuously leverages advanced scientific methods to provide greater language coverage, translation accuracy and speed.
“This extensive set of language pairs provides customers with a universal platform for both text and speech translation among various languages used for a broad range of commercial and public sector purposes,” said AppTek CEO Mudar Yaghi. “Our industry-leading translation capability creates unprecedented opportunities for multinational corporations in established and emerging markets. For example, media companies can now have broadcasts transcribed in the native language and many languages, significantly expanding their audience reach.”
AppTek artificial intelligence and machine learning-based automatic speech recognition and machine translation platform is deployed for the media and entertainment industry as well as call centers. Leveraging over 30 years’ worth of experience its scientists and research engineers support the research and development of practical systems – AppTek enables the highest quality automatic speech recognition and machine translation solutions available anywhere for enterprises everywhere. The streaming real-time combination allows for live closed captioning and speech to speech translation as in the Apptek closed captioning appliance available to TV stations and the Talk2me® app available on the AppStore. Apptek’s ASR and Neural MT are also available via its cloud API services.
