PetaMem Language Server supports over 7600 Languages

Prague/Nuremberg, 2009-12-09

With the ongoing development of proven technologies for data aquisition from multilingual corpora, the language support of the PetaMem Language Server (PMLS) got extended in accordance with ISO639-3. With this, an infrastructure is available, which allows to support over 7600 languages and to manage an arbitrary number of lexica in these languages.

This step became necessary because the available textual data and the covered languages within now well exceeded the old ISO639-1 standard.

As of now, the PMLS software suite contains lexica in more than 533 languages - more than any other software available on the market. There are no constraints to form language pairs and thus with the support of over 25000 language pairs PetaMem can once again - by large margin - claim technological leadership in the field of human language technology.

"This is a big step for PetaMem, both in technological as well as commercial terms. This unique feature makes our systems reference and 1st choice for all language research institutes worldwide. Furthermore, we fixed a long-term deficit in the area of asiatic languages.", says Richard Jelinek, managing director of PetaMem GmbH.
