Cambridge, MA—March 27, 2007—Basis Technology Corp. (www.basistech.com) announced today that it is delivering advanced linguistics modules integrated with the Lucene open source search engine.
Basis Technology’s Rosette® linguistics platform allows Lucene-based applications to index and search text in multiple languages concurrently, including complex script languages such as Arabic, Chinese, Farsi, Japanese and Korean.
Lucene has been widely adopted by both OEM software vendors and enterprise IT departments as the new standard for embedded and customizable search. The combination of Lucene and Rosette provides a powerful environment for building multilingual applications in such areas as CRM, enterprise information retrieval, eDiscovery, and digital forensics.
Rosette is the world’s most widely-used family of commercial software products for foreign language processing. It delivers a broad range of analytic capabilities including language identification, segmentation, lemmatization, noun decompounding, part-of-speech tagging, sentence boundary detection, noun phrase analysis, and entity extraction.
