Senior Project - CLUMPRE


Text Analyzer to Support Natural Language Translation

Senior Project: 1995-1996
Apollo Hogan, Dwayne Ockel, Joshua Stuart and Susana Vong
Boulder, CO

International Language Engineering is a company providing services for software localization (adapting software for the international market). Specializing in multi-language and multi-platform localization projects, ILE currently translates into over 25 languages. Because of the nature of its business, ILE is heavily involved in the development of tools for localization, ranging from document filters to terminology databases, from multi-locale-enabled libraries to innovative translation memory technology.

One of the first steps of translating a set of documents is to isolate its terminology. The project provides an application that allows the extraction of phrases that might be of interest to a translator from a document, and to then build an ordered list of these phrases, based on how "interesting" they might be. A graphical user interface then presents these phrases to the translator, allowing them to select phrases to be added to a glossary. The software was developed using an object-oriented approach and runs on the PC under Windows.
