Hi there,


I performed a research about SDL Phrasefinder (also) and I extracted bilingual terminology from a bilingual parallel corpus (nearly 1 mln words).
Unfortunately I have to admit results are not very brilliant, therefore I am considering the issue of knowing more about the linguistic algorithm underlying the software.

Is there any way to access to the algorithm within the software itself?
Is there any way to modify the algorithm, for scientific purposes only, and test the outcomes after this new modification?

I know questions could sound a bit cheeky, but I am posting this new topic after :
1) searching "my support" section on talisma (SDL knowledgebase) and getting no result
2) having asked SDL support and getting no answer

Any help-suggestion-idea is welcome and appreciated!


Cheers
