Lernout & Hauspie announced that it has licensed its language technologies to Symbian. Symbian has integrated L&H’s linguistic technologies into its platform, whose licensees include Ericsson, Matsushita, Motorola, Nokia, Philips and Psion. This agreement helps to expand L&H’s technologies to the fast growing worldwide market for Smartphones and other Internet-enabled consumer devices. Symbian licensed both L&H’s International CorrectSpell and the Intellifinder Reference Engine technologies. International CorrectSpell uses language-specific text analysis to spell check and correct documents; IntelliFinder uses advanced indexing and retrieval methods coupled with linguistically motivated algorithms to find information in structured reference works. Both technologies are available in a variety of languages. The L&H technologies licensed to Symbian are included in the current generation of the Symbian platform. Providing key commercial and technological advantages for manufacturers of Wireless Information Devices, the Symbian platform provides an operating system, customizable user interfaces, color support, fit-for-purpose application suites, advanced Internet connectivity, and PC connectivity software. www.symbian.com, www.lhs.com
