Last year, while walking down the memory lane, we made an almost clairvoyant comment. We said,

“we can’t wait to start working on everything that we have planned for 2016 – we are certain that the new year is going to be even more exciting for us.”

And boy, has it been exciting! We have done so much – been to so many places! Between creating brilliant new features, researching the next level of technology innovation, accepting awards, making new partnerships, raising money for charity and attending trade fairs, shows and seminars, the team here at KantanMT has been busier than Santa’s little elves this year!

Irish Software Association

KantanMT was recently announced as a finalist in three out of eight categories of the Irish Software Awards 2016 (ISA 2016); ‘Emerging Company of the Year’, ‘Technology Innovation of the Year’ and ‘Outstanding Achievement in International Growth’.

MT Experts Doing Things Differently

Kirti VasheeKirti Vashee, a well-known Machine Translation veteran and independent MT consultant, is currently writing a series on expert MT systems in his blog eMpTy pages. The in-depth posts and interviews by Kirti not only highlight the MT buyer’s expectations, but also stress what the Expert MT Developers are doing differently.

Our clients can easily build their own Custom Machine Translation (CMT) engines, or they can opt for our Professional Services team to do it for them. Continue reading
