Lingsoft Language Services Oy has won one of the European Commission's most important translation agreements. The length of the TRAD23 agreement is four years, meaning that Lingsoft will provide the Commission with translation services from English into Finnish and Swedish totalling up to 80,000 pages per year. The value of the agreement is 6–8 million euros.
Janica Asplund (on the left) talks about the versatility of speech recognition.
Highly capable AI-based speech recognition for dictation in healthcare delivers good results.
“Patient documentation is three times faster with speech recognition, compared to manual processing,” explains Heikki Korvenranta, Medical Advisor, Healthcare Processes & Information Technology at Lingsoft.
Lingsoft has won the competitive tendering for public translation services conducted by the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare THL. This consists of three areas: general health and social services translations, social and health services information management translations, and forensic medicine translations. The most important language pairs in this translation work are Finnish-Swedish and Finnish-English, but Lingsoft delivers translations in all languages required by THL, such as Sámi, Estonian or Arabic. The required languages are also translated into Finnish.
The Necoverse project is crossing borders and breaking language barriers in shipbuilding with virtual reality
Lingsoft is taking part in the two-year Necoverse project, which uses virtual technology to create a variety of interactive virtual environments for the training, design, and remote operations of shipyards and shipbuilding.
The Necoverse project is part of the NEcOLEAP locomotive ecosystem of Meyer Turku, the aim of which is to create a climate-neutral cruise ship concept. It is not enough for the ship itself to be climate neutral; the construction process and building environment must also meet the same target.
Information belongs to everyone: Lingsoft once more a part of Europe Forum in Turku on 30 August - 1 September 2023
