Rosette’s Linguistics Chosen by Web Search Giants
Basis Technology’s commercially supported text analytics platform for search is used by top search engines including Google, Yahoo!, and Bing to segment Chinese, Japanese, and Korean text, improve indexing through morphological analysis, and apply other language-specific features for better precision and greater recall in search results. With Rosette’s dtSearch connector, enterprise customers can access these tools for search-based applications, enterprise search, and other deployments.
About dtSearch: Instantly Search Terabytes of Text
The core developer component of the dtSearch product line, the dtSearch Engine, offers 25+ fielded and full-text federated search options. Its own file parsers highlight hits in popular file types, email types, and attachments and the spider supports static and dynamic data. dtSearch comes with APIs for .NET, Java, C++, SQL, and more for Windows or Linux (native 64-bit and 32-bit).
Support Many Languages in dtSearch with One Language Technology
Implementing Asian, European, and Middle Eastern languages can require several vendors and modules with different performance levels and features. Rosette gives dtSearch implementers high speed and accuracy for these languages via one source, so that plugging in one, or 24 languages, is easy and predictable. Basis Technology has been providing support for our customers around the world for over 15 years.
Accurately Index Documents by Language
At index and query time, the Language Identifier component of Rosette swiftly detects the encoding of documents, identifying 55 languages and 45 encodings. The algorithms are based on statistical profiles and trained on gigabytes of hand-verified data.
A Solution for Every Language Challenge
Each of the world’s languages is unique, and search engines need to understand specific features of each language to deliver the best results. Rosette uses a combination of lexical data, heuristic rules, and statistical models to tokenize text, perform morphological analysis, extract entities, search for name variants, and more. We continually evaluate new approaches to linguistic analysis and update technologies or lexical data in our regular releases to enable our customers to focus on what they do best.
Dependable Speed and Accuracy
Our software has been extensively tested by major web and enterprise search providers, who adopted Rosette to provide quality search results in over 20 languages. Our technology has been tuned for high throughput and is highly scalable in the dtSearch environment. Most importantly, our knowledgeable technical staff can help you whether your problem is with searching in Japanese, Arabic, Russian, or any other language we support.
