What is the importance of local languages in ERP solutions?
Deploying local and vernacular languages in ERP solutions has a robust benefit of reaching out to a wider audience. Let us take the case of e-governance initiatives. The ERP solution in local government agencies in native languages would help in easy adaptability by the local staff; thereby fostering employability of youth in these areas. Local languages in ERP solutions, for example in schools, municipal corporations and rural banking institutions help in improving the operational efficiency since there is a shorter learning curve.

What is the technology behind Linguanext solutions to government?
LinguaNext is privileged to be associated with all nationalized banks and key government agencies. It has been a vendor of choice to many government and banking ERP implementations. To understand how the LinguaNext technology offering works, let us first try and understand how the ERP solution works. Generally, on a higher level, the ERP technology stack consists of a business layer and a data layer. LinguaNext solution, called as Linguify does not touch either of these. Linguify makes no changes to the business layer or the application code and/or the database layer. It makes use of the unique ‘App-Intercept’ technology that provides translations on the fly. Our software provides a wide range of multilingual reporting solutions for on screen reports, prints, policies, brochures and other such collaterals.

What are modules designed for banks ?
Linguify.Banks™ is powered by an innovative new technology that enables the enterprise banking applications to become multilingual in a matter of weeks, without any modifications to the code or to the database. Working completely on the client front-end, it translates all application screens including customized screens into the language of the customer’s choice. Selected print- and file reports including passbook, demand drafts, statements, etc. are also translated into the target language. Enabling multilingual use of the banking application, the software makes it completely risk-free and assures a successful multilingual working environment in a matter of weeks. Yes, few of the customers of are State Bank of India, Central Bank of India, NABARD, Rajasthan State Cooperative Bank etc.

Plans ahead for your company?
We have a series of products and product features that are currently in the pipeline to be launched. We will soon be announcing LinguaNext products enabled with Phonetic Transliteration wherein the text would be converted from one script to another phonetically. We are working on upcoming LinguaNext products for Citizen Services and Mobile Platforms as well.
