WHITESMOKE'S OEM GRAMMAR ENGINE EMBEDDED IN THE Q GROUP'S ONLINE ENGLISH COURSES Tuesday 12 February 2008 PDF Print SaaS Solution for Grammar Checking Spells the End of the Simple “Spell Checker” WhiteSmoke, developer of world-leading English grammar and writing software, and The Q Group, developer of innovative solutions for online English language learning, today announce the integration of WhiteSmoke’s OEM Grammar Engine with The Q Group’s e-learning programs. The Q Group’s online English language learning courses now feature WhiteSmoke’s unique one-click solution to edit any learner’s writing, effectively giving The Q Group’s e-learners their own personal English text editor. The WhiteSmoke OEM Grammar Engine is a SaaS (software as a service) solution for powerful grammar checking, spell checking, and text enrichment. Helping users to improve their English grammar and writing style, the OEM Grammar Engine is based on the technology available in the WhiteSmoke desktop application for English grammar and writing. By integrating with service providers through OEM and SaaS arrangements, WhiteSmoke aims to bring its core technologies to a range of web services, including email, social media networks, and content management systems for websites, blogs and wikis. Shai Etzion, VP of Business Development at WhiteSmoke, says, “the partnership between The Q Group and WhiteSmoke brings the full power of our best-of-breed grammar engine to The Q Group’s users, helping them to improve their writing and learn from their mistakes. It also signals the first stage in the expansion of WhiteSmoke’s grammar and writing technologies beyond our desktop applications to fully embedded SaaS solutions for other service providers. WhiteSmoke offers the next development beyond the standard spell checkers found in various email clients, CMS editors, browsers and toolbars - a grammar checker that corrects grammar, spelling and punctuation.” Danny Rothstein, Product Manager at The Q Group, adds, “WhiteSmoke’s OEM Grammar Engine was integrated seamlessly with the text editors of all our online courses. I am impressed with the ease of the solution, and the added value that WhiteSmoke’s writing technologies bring to our customers.
