Pangeanic has been invited as one of the 3 guest speakers at TMS Inspiration Days (19-20 April 2012) to showcase its transition from Language Service Provider to machine translation software application vendor. Manuel Herranz’ talk will deal with the initial application of statistical models which were applied as a solution to increasing demand for automotive clients and how this internal project changed the company’s DNA. PangeaMT, Pangeanic’s feature-rich DIY SMT solution will be explained as a tool developed with the specific needs of the localization industry in mind, how language companies are freeing themselves from “the TM syndrome”, and embracing machine translation as a tool with which to offer new services and develop new business areas.

The DIY SMT solution has been revolutionizing the localization industry by providing a service for data cleaning tools, data preparation, engine creation and the freedom to retrain and update engines at will.
