Tool-Supported Linguistic Quality in Web-Related Multilanguage Contexts

Tool-Supported Linguistic Quality in Web-Related Multilanguage Contexts

This video was recorded at W3C Workshop: Making the Multilingual Web Work, Rome 2013. Textual content still dominates the Web. The linguistic quality of textual content—correct spelling, terminology, grammar and style—is of the utmost importance for various content-related processes. Search engines and Machine Translation systems, for example, become more accurate if they operate on high-quality content. Given the volume of content on the Web, automation is important for linguistic quality management. The presentation will address LanguageTool, an adaptable open-source tool that has implemented support for the currently drafted ITS 2.0 specification. It will focus on the experience of adapting LanguageTool in a real-world scenario (examples will be drawn from Russian and English) and using it for checking compliance with governmental regulations like the German BITV2.
