AppTek Expands Languages in Modzy Platform
AppTek, a provider of automatic speech recognition (ASR) and neural machine translation (NMT) technologies that use artificial intelligence, has deployed 16 ASR languages and 25 bi-directional NMT-ready languages into Modzy, an enterprise AI platform and marketplace.
The deployment extends AppTek's language transcription and translation capabilities available via Modzy beyond the initial five ASR languages and two MT languages contributed by AppTek when the platform launched in November.
The AppTek languages now available on the Modzy marketplace include Arabic (ASR and MT), Belarusian (MT), Bosnian (MT), Bulgarian (MT), Chinese (ASR and MT), Croatian (MT), Dari (MT), Dutch (ASR), English (ASR and MT), French (ASR and MT), German (ASR and MT), Greek (MT), Hebrew (ASR), Hindi (ASR), Indonesian (ASR), Italian (ASR and MT), Japanese (ASR), Korean (ASR and MT), Montenegrin (MT), Pashto (MT), Persian (ASR and MT), Polish (MT), Portuguese (ASR and MT), Romanian (MT), Russian (ASR and MT), Serbian (MT), Slovak (MT), Spanish (ASR and MT), Turkish (ASR), Ukranian (MT) and Urdu (MT).
"AppTek's world-renowned scientific team and highly advanced artificial intelligence technologies equip us to accelerate the delivery of new language transcriptions and translations across a wide breadth of languages, said Mike Veronis, chief revenue officer at AppTek, in a statement. "Consequently, we have extended our language capabilities available via Modzy significantly in just eight months since the platform originally launched. By empowering organizations to streamline implementation of ASR and MT, the AppTek-Modzy solution is enabling speech-centric missions to move forward at the pace required in today's volatile environment."
"With the expansion of AppTek language capabilities in the Modzy marketplace, our customers can now access and deploy trusted models at scale for hard-to-find, mission-critical languages" said Josh Sullivan, head of Modzy and executive vice president at Booz Allen Hamilton, in a statement.
AppTek Speech Translate and AppTek Speech Transcribe feature real-time advanced speech-to-speech, speech-to-text, and text-to-speech capabilities.
The agreement embeds AppTek's automatic speech recognition technology into TransPerfect's GlobalLink language technology platform.
