To incorporate highly accurate multilingual search capabilities (Chinese, English, Japanese and Russian) into Sphinx, the open-source search engine, Socialgist chose Basis Technology’s Rosette. Rosette Base Linguistics (RBL) delivers faster and more accurate search results whether searching within a language or across multiple languages. It integrates seamlessly with open source platforms, like Sphinx, and a wide range of enterprise applications.
RBL helps Socialgist deliver more value to its enterprise customers by improving the quality and relevance of their search results. Languages such as Chinese and Japanese require specialized linguistic processing just to find words to index, but even English searches are boosted with linguistic processing that delivers a greater volume of highly relevant results.
