Basis Technology Continues to Provide Chinese and Japanese Language Support to Iron Mountain Content Archiving Solution

Multilingual Searches Enabled for NearPoint Content Archiving Solution

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - January 24, 2011) - The advanced linguistic analytics of Basis Technology's Rosette is enhancing foreign language processing of documents by Iron Mountain's NearPoint solution, a leading enterprise-class content archiving solution. The information management company leverages Basis Technology's Japanese and Chinese linguistic modules, among other technologies, so its NearPoint customers can achieve improved precision and recall in search results.

Iron Mountain's NearPoint content archive also offers customers an enhanced e-discovery solution for quickly finding content and applying legal holds across email, files, and SharePoint data, in multiple languages. With the Rosette Linguistics Platform embedded in NearPoint, users can now easily do the same for data in Chinese and Japanese.

Unlike European languages, Chinese and Japanese are written without spaces between words, which pose a challenge to search engines that index and query based on words. With Basis Technology's Rosette Linguistics Platform performing word breaking and other linguistic analysis, Iron Mountain NearPoint customers can perform multilingual searches that yield more accurate and complete results.

"We've been refining our Chinese and Japanese search capabilities for the past 10 years through a combination of innovative technologies and extensive dictionary data to handle the complexities of Asian languages," said Carl Hoffman, CEO of Basis Technology. "We're especially pleased that Iron Mountain, a trusted and respected provider of archiving and other information management solutions, continues to rely on Rosette for its linguistic needs."
