Duden announced the launch of its intelligent spelling and grammar checker “Duden Linguistic Engine” as a web service for software integration. The solution enables software manufacturers, for example of content management or editing systems, to integrate a sophisticated German language spellchecker into their applications and to support customers in assuring the quality of texts. The spell checker offers more than usual spellcheckers: Its syntax analysis enables the software to detect grammar mistakes as in “Sie lernte ihn beim tanzen kennen” (instead of “Sie lernte ihn beim Tanzen kennen”) or mistakes as in “Er will sie kennenlernen” instead of the correct “Er will sie kennen lernen”. The web service is offered with two licensing models on customers’ servers or hosted by Duden. Detailed information on the “Duden Linguistic Engine” is available on request. www.duden.de
