Basis Technology and Perfect Search Partnership Boosts Accuracy of Search Products Suite

Advanced linguistics for Asian and European languages enhances enterprise search appliance and embeddable search engine

Cambridge, MA & Orem, UT—June 22, 2011—Basis Technology and Perfect Search Corp. today announced a partnership to integrate Basis Technology’s industry-leading Rosette® linguistics platform into Perfect Search’s high-performance, enterprise search products to improve search results in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian, French, Italian, and German.

Perfect Search is using Rosette to segment Chinese, Japanese, and Korean documents—which are normally written without spaces between words—into words, reducing the number of incorrect results and decreasing search index size for improved speed. For European languages, language-specific lemmatization (retrieving the dictionary form of words) and decompounding compound words in German and Korean increases the number of relevant results returned without increasing unrelated search results.

“Of the linguistic technologies we considered, Basis Technology’s had the best industry track record and accuracy,” Tim Stay, CEO of Perfect Search, said. “We would not want to pair our game-changing, industry-disrupting search technology with anything less than the highest quality we could find. We are excited to show that Perfect Search has the horsepower to use the Basis Technology international linguistics platform in ways that are just impractical for our competitors.”

“Our partnership with Perfect Search re-emphasizes the critical role that high quality linguistic analysis plays in today’s global enterprises,” Steve Kearns, Product Manager of Basis Technology, said. “We are pleased to be working with an innovative search company like Perfect Search to extend their scalable, high-quality search capabilities to new languages and regions.”
