Language Weaver Bolsters Languages, Linux Support
Los Angeles-based Language Weaver said Wednesday that the firm has added support for Linux with its automated language translation tools. According to the firm, all of its language translation pairs can now run on Linux operating systems. The firm developed machine translation systems based on statistical translation algorithms, and is a spinoff the the University of Southern California's Information Sciences Institute. Language Weaver also said that it has added new support for Norwegian-English translation; Urdu, and Hausa. Urdu--which is spoken in Pakistan and India--was released to its U.S. government customers, and Hausa is a West African language.
