Study Shows WorldWideScience Alliance and Deep Web Technologies Provide Global Access to Scientific Research
SANTA FE, N.M., Jan. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Microsoft's new Customer Case Study, published on January 08, 2015, commends the innovative, multilingual, search solution, WorldWideScience.org, developed in partnership by Deep Web Technologies (DWT), Microsoft Translator, and the WorldWideScience Alliance. WorldWideScience.org combines DWT's federated search solution, Explorit Everywhere!, and Microsoft's Machine Translation Services (Microsoft Translator) to provide global access to science published in any language by translating a user's queries into the language of the source and search results into a user's native language. Lorrie Johnson, the WorldWideScience.org Project Manager, explains "We search approximately 100 repositories, 20 of which are non-English, that we estimate include more than 500 million pages of science and technology information. So instead of having to go to 100 different sources to find content, WorldWideScience.org, using Microsoft Translator, offers the ability to search all of them with a single query."
DWT's Explorit Everywhere! multilingual solution, using Microsoft Translator, encourages international collaboration and allows researchers to find published information in their field of study, regardless of the language. "We found Microsoft Translator to be fast and accurate, and enjoyed working with the translator team," mentions Abe Lederman, DWT's CEO and CTO. "Users definitely appreciate viewing the side-by-side page translations they see through Microsoft Translator when they click on a result from the application."
DWT has been refining their technology with the WorldWideScience Alliance since 2010. The application is designed for intuitive use and exposes researchers to diverse perspectives from researchers in foreign countries. "Using Microsoft Translator, WorldWideScience.org has gained a lot of attention and visibility in government circles," says Lederman who sees opportunities to use his company's Explorit Everywhere! application for many other solutions. "The intelligence community, multinational companies, and risk-analysis firms are all examples of organizations that could really benefit from federated, multilingual searches."
"Microsoft Translator can help customers better reach their internal and external stakeholders across languages. By building on the proven, customizable and scalable Translator API, Deep Web Technologies has developed a solution that has a direct impact on researcher's ability to learn and exchange with their peers around the world, thereby improving their own research impact," says Olivier Fontana, Director of Product Marketing for Microsoft Translator.
About Deep Web Technologies
Deep Web Technologies (http://www.deepwebtech.com) creates custom, sophisticated federated search solutions, based on its Explorit Everywhere!TM, for clients who demand precise, accurate results. It is the tool of choice when needing to access the Deep Web, a collection of Internet information sources that are generally not accessible to web spiders or crawlers and cannot, therefore, be indexed for search by popular search engines such as Google, Yahoo! or Bing. Explorit performs real-time searches of multiple information sources, in parallel, merging the results into a single page. Serving Fortune 500 companies, the Science.gov Alliance, the U.S. Department of Energy, Stanford University, the WorldwideScience Alliance and a wide variety of other customers, partners and research and library alliances, Deep Web Technologies has built a reputation as the "researcher's choice" for its advanced, agile information discovery tools.
