CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Aug. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Basis Technology today announced Rosette® Search Essentials for Solr, a single package comprising a complete Solr instance together with industry-leading text analytics. Businesses where search is mission-critical—such as content management, customer relationship management, social media monitoring, e-discovery, and national security—have chosen Rosette to add dependable language support and increase accuracy across major languages.

"Search is the cornerstone of virtually every application. Whether you are two students in a dorm nurturing the next big idea or a professional engineer at a major company, language technology is essential," said Carl Hoffman, CEO of Basis Technology. "Good ideas are rarely confined to the English-speaking world. Developers can integrate the Rosette API once and enable other languages as needed."

Rosette Search Essentials provides advanced text processing in forty languages to address the most critical requirements of search-based applications, such as tokenization for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean; decompounding in German and Dutch; and lemmatization to increase accuracy and recall in nearly every language.

"Basis Technology has actively supported the development of Lucene and Solr for the past eight years," said Yonik Seeley, creator of Solr and co-founder of Heliosearch. "It's no surprise that many of the largest Solr deployments have adopted Rosette for multilingual enablement and metadata enrichment. Rosette Search Essentials will enable enterprises of all sizes to incorporate advanced text analytics."

The Rosette linguistics platform supports language identification, tokenization, lemmatization, decompounding, part-of-speech tagging, entity extraction, entity resolution, and cross-lingual name matching in up to forty languages.
