WhiteSmoke 2009 - a New Page in Writing Technology
User Community Drives English Writing Software's Artificial Intelligence Algorithms
WILMINGTON, Delaware, October 6 -- The recent release of WhiteSmoke 2009 represented a new page in the development of WhiteSmoke's writing technologies. After several years of solid research and development on the promising idea of an intelligent writing tool for correcting and enhancing a user's text, WhiteSmoke 2009 fully delivers. Featuring a grammar checking engine that detects a wider range of errors than any other commercial grammar checker, and a range of other tools to create an all-in-one writing solution, WhiteSmoke 2009 is the ideal software application for writers, copy editors and at-home Internet users who are concerned with creating error-free texts.
Community is the Key
"The real secret behind WhiteSmoke's technologies is our user base. Our users give us constant feedback, and a very wide variety of texts for analysis - without this interaction, our algorithms would not be so advanced," states Liran Brenner, VP R&D at WhiteSmoke. "Our users make a passionate community, and have stuck with the product throughout its development due to the great potential it brings to written communications. WhiteSmoke's writing technologies level the playing field, allowing English as a Second Language speakers, and those of us who simply need a good editor for our writing, to confidently write error-free texts."
The Fruition of a Great Idea
WhiteSmoke writing technologies are based on natural language processing (NLP) technology. The program works by analyzing an entire sentence, understanding the structure, and making corrections and suggestions based on a combination of grammar rules and complex statistical models. This approach is unique, and was a factor in leading Business 2.0 to include WhiteSmoke as one of its "31 Best Business Ideas in the World" of 2006. The latest release, WhiteSmoke 2009, is the complete fruition of the WhiteSmoke idea - an intelligent and dynamic tool for writers; a tool that works alongside any text-based application.
A Writing Tool for Everyone
Hilla Ovil-Brenner, WhiteSmoke CEO, says, "I am proud to say that WhiteSmoke 2009 is a very mature product for professional writers, and for people who just want to write correct English in their emails and instant messages. Now that we have launched WhiteSmoke 2009 with its advanced grammar checking and style checking features, we hope to reach out to a wider audience, especially writing and copy editing professionals, and writers of English as a Second Language. The new Hi-Tech Writing profile is also aimed at high tech and IT professionals, another niche that needs professional text editing and enhancement. We at WhiteSmoke truly hope to revolutionize written online communications by bringing quality English to everyone."
