Text Simplifier

Combine Simplification and Omission

gn: justify;">Text Simplifier modifies a text with respect to customer defined structural and lexical transformations. It allows to translate complex grammatical structures into simpler ones and to adapt vocabulary in various ways.

The transformations help to better understand foreign-language texts, to prepare texts for Machine Translation in order to obtain more reliable results and to train statistical MT respectively, to ease human translation and to support text production and translation in many other respects.

Lingenio defines the structures to be simplified and the corresponding results on the basis of the customer needs.

You may simplify a text along the lines of different perspectives:
