Asia Online becomes Omniscien Technologies
SINGAPORE – September 14, 2016 – Asia Online today announces a change of the company’s name to Omniscien Technologies (https://www.omniscien.com), the establishment of a European entity and the appointment of Peter Zeer as Director of Sales, EMEA.
This decision was driven and supported by the recent release of Language Studio™ Cloud Version 4.0 in August of this year and the revised Language Studio™ Cloud business model, that significantly increases value to customers and the addressable market, making high quality machine translation more accessible by a wide range of industries, including the localization industry in particular.
“With the largest portion of our business in Europe, it was a logical step to adopt a more effective brand and base ourselves closer to our customers”, said Omniscien Technologies’ recently appointed CEO, Andrew Rufener, who is now spending a large portion of his time in Europe to support the company’s growth.
“With Language Studio™ Cloud V4.0, Omniscien Technologies continues to lead the charge in delivering high-end machine translation quality, enterprise grade functionality and continued innovation in Machine Translation and Language Processing technology to the Localization Industry as well as for advanced Enterprise applications” said Peter Zeer, Director of Sales, EMEA. “Strengthening our European organization will benefit both Omniscien Technologies as well as our customers”.
With Language Studio™ V4.0 Omniscien Technologies has introduced a revised business model that offers the most cost effective MT solution in the market. This offering is further enhanced with 100+ “off the shelf”, ready to use Industry Engines covering all key language pairs and increasingly 12 industry domains so that customers can translate “in domain” without the need for customization. Language Studio™ Industry Engines also serve as a foundation for Omniscien Technologies’ new “do it yourself” rapid customization process that allows customers to combine their own custom data with Language Studio™ engines to create Custom Machine Translation Engines that are tuned to the specific needs of the customer through a quick and fully automated process.
Language Studio™ V4.0 further enhances the historically offered Professional Expert Guided Custom Machine Translation engines, with new automation tools, collaborative project management and data manufacturing tools. In this ground breaking approach, Language Studio™ Experts develop a unique Quality Improvement Plan for each engine that ensures the highest quality translation output possible. When expert guidance and advanced data manufacturing tools are combined, Language Studio™ is able to deliver an industry first – high quality custom engines, even when customers have no data for use in the engine training process. With a proven track record of delivering 200-300%+ productivity gains for Language Service Providers, the latest Language Studio™ versions new features further enhance this capability, making it faster and easier to achieve near-human translation quality than ever before.
