  • Patent number: 10409903
    Abstract: The technology described herein enables users to enrich their vocabulary by annotating and/or automatically translating specific words, which are predicted to be unknown to the specific user. The user experiences the original content enriched with adaptive, smart in-line annotations of unknown words. The technology is tailored to individual users by understanding an individual user's vocabulary in a particular language. As a user consumes content or performs document authoring/editing activities, the system captures language usage patterns, maintained in a private Vocabulary Analytics Store (VAS) for the particular user. Information in the VAS is used as input to a machine classifier that determines whether a word is likely to be known or unknown to a user.

  • Patent number: 10394964
    Abstract: A gesture based system for translation and transliteration of input text, and a corresponding method have been disclosed. The system and method provide for selective translation and transliteration of the input text, based on the gestures performed by a user. When the user performs a left swipe gesture, input text which is in a first language is translated into a language prescribed by the user. In the event that the user performs a right-swipe, the input text is transliterated from a first language, into a language prescribed by the user. The user is also enabled to switch back to the original language of the input text, that is, the first language, by performing predetermined gestures.
