Project Profile

Project abbreviation: LSDISCO

Project name: Lingsoft Solutions as Distributable Containers

Project coordinator: Lingsoft, Inc. (contact Michael Stormbom, Michael.stormbom@lingsoft.fi)

Funding: ELG (European Language Grid) Pilot Projects Open Call 1: 140,625 Euro

Project duration: August 12 2020 – June 11, 2021

Main key words: ASR, NER, MT, Lemmatization, POS Tagging, Syntactic Disambiguation, Spell Checking, Grammar Checking

Goal of the project: Lingsoft is one of the leading providers of language services and solutions in the Nordic countries. Our services are built on our own language technology tools, either proprietary or based on open source tools. The project goal is to provide our tools and services through ELG by packaging our tools for spelling/grammar, speech recognition, named entity recognition, and machine translation, by making them available through the ELG GRID platform.

Project abstract: The project resulted in a set of NLP tools for the Nordic languages being available both for public organizations and companies, allowing companies and public organizations throughout Europe to efficiently incorporate Nordic language support in e.g. subtitled videos or customer service chats.
As a future goal of the project, Lingsoft aims to use the ELG GRID Platform as a marketplace and marketing place for customers and researchers to find our solutions and services.
