Human Language Technology Firm LinguaSys Names D.C. Security Technology Strategist Mark Sauter Senior Advisor
BOCA RATON, Fla., May 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LinguaSys, Inc., the international provider of natural language and Machine Translation (MT) technologies, today announced that it has retained Mark Sauter as Senior Advisor.
Mr. Sauter, a well-known corporate advisor and author in the security sector will help drive strategic partnerships and position LinguaSys in the fast-growing federal "big data" market.
LinguaSys serves some of the world's largest mutual fund and technology companies, hoteliers and commercial banks, providing secure, flexible, fast and more accurate enterprise and mobile translation solutions. LinguaSys provides data analytics for enterprises, as well as mobile translation applications on smartphones for consumers. Along with its revolutionary software for developing new languages and creating natural language understanding applications, LinguaSys is the first translation company to offer a true interlingua-based system.
"LinguaSys offers a customizable language processing tool that will continue to attract partners and integrators in areas that require higher levels of security and reliability," said industry expert Dan Miller, senior analyst at Opus Research. "The addition of Mark Sauter signals the Company's intention to remain a leader in mainstreaming Machine Translation and adjacent software and services."
LinguaSys' Carabao middleware engine makes new MT languages and customized lexical services easier to use and compatible with existing natural language software. As a cross-lingual technology, it translates directly from one target language to another – providing better results than competitors, which must first translate searches into English. This allows more accurate search and translation of both industry-specific and public (e.g., Tweets) free-text data. The patent pending technology drives powerful consumer applications in addition to enterprise network applications, including:
- TGMobile allowing 500 users to chat and text in over 50 languages simultaneously on Androids and iPhones
- TGPhoto which translates 50 languages in images captured by smartphone cameras
- Email, text and chat multilingual translation using LinguaSys' synonym-based ontology to translate unstructured questions quickly and cost-effectively
"LinguaSys is the solution for enterprises that must increasingly serve multilingual customers and staff," said Mr. Sauter. "Not only is its technology superior, but LinguaSys' management has decades of success closing the language gap for major corporations."
Mr. Sauter has served as a strategic and investment banking advisor to technology firms focused on cybersecurity, data analytics, federal services, biometrics and DNA identification. Previous positions include serving as COO of the Chesapeake Innovation Center, a technology scout for partners including the NSA, Boeing and Northrop Grumman and an officer in the U.S. Army. He earned degrees from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and Harvard University.
