Semantria currently lets you process content in the following languages: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German, Mandarin, Korean, and Japanese. We also have partners that offer Malay, Indonesian, and Singlish. Unlike other sentiment analysis and text analytics APIs, Semantria’s production time on language packs is considerably longer because they are built from the ground up.
A common way of building language packs is to directly translate already existing languages. While this method gives you many language packs in a short amount of time, much of a subtleties of language are lost in the process. The resulting analysis a lot less accurate and effective.
Semantria employs native speakers to craft the language packs. Because of their native proficiency in their language, the language packs are constructed to fully take into account common expressions, mannerisms, and other linguistic subtleties. This allows you to more reliably extract meaningful data from your content.
So while more time consuming and resource intensive, the ultimate pay-off is a much deeper understanding of the language, which delivers results that are more accurate and consistent.
