Press Release

Mont Vernon, NH — May 5, 1994

Circle Noetic Services Provides Foriegn Language Stemming Technology to Personal Library Software.

Circle Noetic Services (CNS) announced today that Personal Library Software will incorporate WordFan™ French and Spanish stemming technology into its full-text retrieval products. WordFan provides word stemming, which accurately returns either the stem or a host of possible conjugations, declensions or variants of a particular word. Stemming is an important part of natural language querying and relevance ranking, features for which PLS is well known.

“PLS is strongly committed to the international marketplace, and native language support is critical to internationalizing our products,” Bruce Mount, Personal Library Software’s Director of Product Development, said. “We are pleased with CNS’ technology and its ability to support PLS in delivering this functionality.”

Personal Librarian™ version 4.0, which began shipping this month, will be released later this month in French, Spanish, Italian and German versions.
