March 1: the Launch of a New LT-Innovate News Service

LT-Innovate is celebrating spring a little early this year. But we hope it brings the same spirit of renewal and joyful growth to our community of language technology companies, vendors, researchers and their customers. And indeed to all language technology lovers everywhere!

As of March 1st we will be opening up a new stream of language technology news called Language Tech Market News here. This will replace our former news site (Lang Tech News) which is closing down definitively.
We shall also continue to feed the community on the following Twitter accounts:



Our former site enabled us to build up a formidable picture of what was happening in and around the market for language technology products, covering the players, products and possibilities in this exciting environment. This information in turn fed into our reports on the marketplace and our efforts to galvanise European investments in multilingual intelligence as a foundation stone of the European Single Digital Market.

We are now consolidating all our market data and communication activities on the central and unique LT-Innovate site where you can also find links to the news feed we are starting and learn more about our programme as a whole.

And if you have any questions - or contributions - just get in touch as usual.

Happy reading!

Participate in a survey on text analytics conducted by Seth Grimes

If you are a current text analytics user, or if you're exploring ways to tame text, please take part in a survey conducted by industry analyst Seth Grimes.

Seth is researching how organizations apply text analytics, at the information they're analyzing, solution selection criteria, and return on investment. He plans to release findings via a free report that will benchmark text analytics usage and cover perceptions about text technologies and solutions.

The survey has 22 questions. Your response is anonymous (unless you provide contact info) and should take 5-10 minutes. Consultant and researcher responses are quite welcome. If you're not a direct text analytics user, but your customer experience, survey analysis, social media analytics, e-discovery, research, or other solution relies on text analysis, please take the survey.

Respond by 21 February 2014, please.

Thanks for your participation!
