Last week we announced the launch of KantanSnippet™, a part of the KantanWidgets™ Suite of Productivity Apps. KantanWidgets allows KantanMT clients to integrate KantanMT technology within their own environments, including websites, Microsoft Office programs and supported browsers (Google Chrome, Safari and Firefox).
Last week we announced the launch of KantanTranslate™, a new feature on our KantanMT platform, which will make translating small fragments of content simpler and faster. We interviewed the man-behind-the-scenes, Marek Mazur, Development Manager at KantanMT to find out about the great features, benefits and the impetus behind implementing KantanTranslate.
Like the rest of the world, we have joined the Pokémon Go craze, with many of us here at KantanMT searching for Pokémon characters during lunch or after a day in the office. Of course, it goes without saying that we have our own Whats App group, aptly named ‘Poke’ to share our progress throughout the game, each of us playing in different languages.
The University of Alcalá (UAH), one of KantanMT’s Academic Partnersused the platform to teach final year undergraduate students Custom Machine Translation during the 2015-2016 academic year.

The globalised make-up of the car industry, means automated translation is an important tool for those working in the automotive industry. KantanMT has helped clients use Machine Translation to efficiently translate technical documentation, motor part catalogues and how-to manuals, whilst automotive websites, such as ChromeData use KantanMT to translate content, so it can give detailed vehicle info and specifications for thousands of websites and dealerships around the globe.
The automotive industry has always been one of change. That change is leading to fundamental shifts in car technology and how users interact with them. In 2016, a typical car coming off the production line will contain 100 million lines of code. 20 million of those lines of code are required just to run a standard navigation and infotainment system. This increasing complexity inevitably leads to increasing level of customisation.

Technology centric car companies such as Tesla are already utilising such conveniences and it is inevitable more will follow.
