Teragram Integrates Linguistic Tools With Apache Lucene

Teragram Corp. (www.teragram.com), a SAS company (www.sas.com) and a provider of multilingual natural language processing technologies, announced that it has integrated its linguistic suite into the Apache Lucene open source search platform (http://lucene.apache.org). Lucene is a full-featured text search engine library which powers sites such as Wikipedia, CNET Reviews, and Eventful.com. The integration enables Lucene users to add taxonomies and faceted search to their websites, as well as to correct the spelling of queries and search in multiple languages. Using Teragram’s solutions, enterprises deploying Lucene can provide site searchers with a functionality that parallels popular enterprise search platforms on the market today.

Teragram’s full suite of products, including TK240 taxonomy management, automatic categorization, and automatic metadata generation enhance Lucene’s basic search function. As a result, adopters of the open source search engine (for embedded search on both internal- and external-facing sites) can provide consumers with a more comprehensive experience that includes a searchable index. The faceted index is built using Teragram’s taxonomy tools that classify words into relevant topics and subtopics.

Teragram’s multilingual natural language processing tools provide linguistic modules such as morphological stemming, spelling correction, parts-of-speech tagging, related queries, and more. Teragram also offers dictionaries in a variety of Eastern and Western European, Asian, and Middle Eastern languages. SAS acquired Teragram in March 2008.
