Intelligent translation and automated text handling are no longer a thing of the future: thanks to the advances in language technology, these disciplines are now reality.
At Pangeanic we are dedicated to studying and advancing in computational linguistics, offering our clients state-of-the-art technology for automatic and efficient translations, as well as other related linguistic services. Let us tell you all about the language technology we handle and how it can help your company.
What is Language Technology?
Language technology, also known as human language technology or HLT, is a set of disciplines that allow computer programs to produce, modify or generate responses using spoken and written language.
It is thus a discipline that combines knowledge in computer science and linguistics, generating new areas of study, such as those linked to natural language processing (NLP).
What is Language Technology used for?
Some specific uses of language technology include machine translation, anonymization, sentiment analysis and summarization services.
These are useful functions in a global market context, where everything is more and more interconnected thanks to the Internet.
To give an example, according to a study by CSA Research, 67% of consumers prefer to buy products from a website in their native language. This is driving businesses to seek out machine translation services for their digital presence.
In turn, those companies that rely on collecting and processing users' data look to language technology to enable them to efficiently comply with the law through anonymization processes.

Our Experience: Pangeanic's Language Technology
Our machine translation services allow the translation of hundreds of millions of words in just seconds and with almost human quality.
To do this, we use:
- State-of-the-art technology with powerful neural networks in our secure private cloud or in our customers' own infrastructure. We also have API technology and custom machine translation engines, which can be customized and applied at different levels of deep learning aggressiveness and impact through training programs for machine translation engines.
- The supervision, experience and linguistic expertise of our more than 25,000 certified translators.
Some of the customers who may require such services include legal firms (in the context of international litigation), financial institutions, e-Commerce companies, marketing, government and public administration, the tourism and leisure sector, and companies linked to the publication of content or news, among others.
Deep Adaptive Machine Translation
Deep adaptive machine translation algorithms use our database of more than 10B texts to automatically select relevant data and mimic the work of a human translator, including linguistic issues related to style and expressions.
As opposed to traditional machine translation, Deep Adaptive Machine Translation allows companies to achieve more translated content and have access to it in a faster and more economical way.
To do this, we use technology linked to machine learning, so that we create a cloned translation engine that mimics the desired vocabulary and translation processes. Thus, it is also a good option for companies that employ specific terminology (e.g. the legal or financial sectors, among others).
Anonymization services are essential to ensure the confidentiality of the data collected by companies and thus meet the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)at European level.
Anonymization consists of removing identifiers from the data, so that they are not recognizable. This process can be carried out more or less aggressively (including the removal of secondary information) in the procedures known as anonymization, pseudo-anonymization and de-identification. At Pangeanic we have an award-winning anonymization platform capable of performing these three procedures.
In addition, in our commitment to democratize and make language technology accessible, we are leading MAPA, a European project which seeks to create an open-source system for public administrations.
Within the field known as human language technology, Summarization consists of identifying the most relevant sentences and paragraphs among huge amounts of words and texts. The next step is to create new, shorter and more accessible documents.
In this way, desired data can be found and data which is not useful can be discarded, eliminating manual processes and therefore more cost-effective at all levels.
At Pangeanic, we offer abstractive and extractive summarization services using mathematical calculations and state-of-the-art technology to provide efficient and accurate summarization processes.
Sentiment analysis refers to the ability to understand users' opinions about a company and, in this way, access a brand's image that has been generated on digital platforms. Thus, it is possible to analyze thousands of multilingual reviews in a simple, fast and precise way thanks to the use of language technology.
This service is increasingly used in view of the growing importance of users' opinions in the success or failure of a product: almost four out of five consumers (79%) take reviews from other users into account when buying a product.
Pangeanic's sentiment analysis tool is customizable and can detect specific emotions. This way, it provides companies with access to key information for improving their user experience processes, among other functions. It also has a hybrid approach, combining the use of a lexical basis for sentiment analysis and the new supervised learning perspective. This allows us to offer ratios of 80-90% accuracy in our results.

Automatic Text Classification
Automatic text classification services allow for categorization and classification of texts and documents in a simple way and in any language, following general or personalized taxonomies.
Pangeanic's automatic text classification platform is flexible in such a way that the user chooses which algorithm and text features are relevant for each project.
Our tool uses deep neural networks that achieve accurate results and that, in addition, learn and train themselves to categorize texts with the highest accuracy.
Our language detection services are able to automatically identify a language in a matter of seconds.
It is a multilingual information processing service that can be used for various purposes: from a prior process required for machine translation or translation engine training to the organization of large amounts of information.
In short, at Pangeanic we strive to lead all sectors linked to the development of language technology. We offer our clients quality in all our services, based on a unique combination between cutting-edge technology, commitment to continuous training and innovation, and a human team expert in linguistics and ready to interact with new technological possibilities.
