Lingsoft and Neoxen have jointly developed a Microsoft SharePoint extension significantly increasing accuracy of the SharePoint search engine when searching through documents written in morphologically rich languages, such as Finnish and Scandinavian languages.

PR9.NET March 12, 2008 - Finland, Turku - This extension, called Lingsoft SearchExpander for SharePoint, is installed on the same server as SharePoint and was unveiled in the "Heroes happen {here}" event organized by Microsoft at the Finlandia House in Helsinki on Thursday March 6th. The attractively priced search expander enters the market in the second quarter of 2008.

"It is common knowledge that search engine accuracy is poor when used for searching through texts written in a morphologically rich language. This is due to numerous inflections in the language. For instance, only about one in seven words in Finnish text is presented in its base form. Therefore enriching the search index with the base forms of the words appearing in the document has been found to be a good way to improve search results. Lingsoft has already applied this proprietary technology for analyzing words and sentences to several customer projects. Now for the first time the feature is available as an easy-to-install extension to the popular SharePoint search engine," says Lingsoft CEO Juhani Reiman.

"It has been a pleasure to be involved in the development of this application, which is easy to use and provides so much value to SharePoint searches, especially since we could exploit our knowledge of Microsoft application architecture that we have gathered. At the same time it dawned on us how brilliant Lingsoft's language modeling technology truly is. I can't help but to recommend this to all the organizations that have a need to search for information in their documents written in Scandinavian languages," says Neoxen CEO Esa Tervo.

Lingsoft Search Expander for SharePoint is installed on the same server as Microsoft SharePoint. After installation it works seamlessly and invisibly enriching the SharePoint search index with the base forms of the words in the document to be indexed. Users of the SharePoint search engine will see the power of the search expander as the search also finds the documents where the desired word only appears in some of its inflected forms. The number of found documents can as much as quadruple compared to a basic search.
