Applications Technology, Inc. (aka. “AppTek”)

McLean, VA, USA — Exit November 2010 — Applications Technology (AppTek) was a U.S. software company specializing in human language technology, headquartered in McLean, Virginia. AppTek’s primary focus was on machine translation (MT) and automatic speech recognition (ASR). Originally using a rule-based engine with a transfer approach (based primarily on Lexical Functional Grammar), AppTek acquired AIXPLAIN in 2004, thereby adding a statistical engine as well. The two engines have since been merged into a hybrid machine translation engine covering many language pairs. Apptek was sold to SAIC [NYSE:SAI] in November of 2010 as an asset deal.
