Have you ever been sick in a foreign country but unable to communicate what you needed? Or robbed and needing help without the cash to pay for it or the language to convey it? That's what happened to the two founders who went on to create Verbalizeit out of that experience, Ryan Frankel and Kunal Sarda. Their Verbalizeit API lets you connect users to human translators on conference calls and on the web.
The KantanMT's REST-based API with JSON responses is designed to aid mid-sized local service providers (LSPs) in delivering KantanMT translation capabilities. KantanMT is a statistical machine translation platform (in contrast to a computer assisted translation service). The big advantage is speed: the service is available instantly, faster than you can say, "qu'est-ce que c'est?"
Systran's API automates projects that can use machine translation. Based on traditional TCP/IP architecture, the API and its software rely on statistical techniques to learn from existing and validated translations. According to Systran's API webpage, the API is used wordwide for everything from website translation to interactive chat, from email solutioms to database translation and desktop uses.
