Basis Technology Corp. Releases Highlight 6.0 in Continued Partnership with ODNI and DIA
Nov 7 13
Basis Technology Corp. announced the release of key enhancements to Highlight -a tool for Intelligence Community (IC) linguists and analysts to standardize named entities in their documents. As a result of Basis Technology's strategic partnership with The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the release of Highlight 6.0 addresses the difficulties in transliterating names of foreign persons and places into IC standards. Subtle discrepancies in the spellings of names within translated documents can lead to recurring flaws and missed opportunities. IC transliteration standards exist to eliminate these discrepancies, but adhering to them is time-consuming and error-prone. Highlight was created by linguistics and text analytics experts at Basis Technology in order to simplify IC-compliant workflow and report generation, greatly reducing the number of name inconsistencies from translator and intelligence analyst reports. Key features of Highlight 6.0 include: Now supports 5 languages: Arabic, Mandarin, Dari, Farsi, Pashto; IC-compliant entity standardization for people and place names; choice of interactive or automatic name identification and translation; word and Excel plug-ins for Microsoft Office 2007 & 2010; accredited for Top Secret, Secret, and Unclassified Government Systems; received the Certificate of Networthiness; and support DOCEX, DOMEX, CELLEX, HUMINT and SIGINT missions.
