Abstract
Our approach is an Open Architecture (OA) Universal Language Translator (ULT), a C2 translation system to be used by embedded coalition forces and takes full advantage of the benefits of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). Combining translation software for free text and transliteration software for conversion of place names, geographic locations, and military symbols provides a sound framework for a ULT in an SOA environment. This OA approach that isolates translation engines from the service interfaces provides an application independent solution. We offer a solution that leverages mature, industry-standard translation capabilities, as well as cutting-edge modular transliteration capabilities. We are teaming with SYSTRAN, the software that powers Yahoo!'s translation site, to provide a ULT solution. Our approach provides a best of breed approach by isolating translation software from external interfaces, allowing for seamless integration of translation products. Transliterating place names and military symbols can be accomplished by leveraging our eXtensible Transliteration Framework's Web Services, built for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency's GeoNames Server. Combining these technologies and prototype adaptations with trade studies to identify candidate Army Battle Command Systems (ABCS) provides a framework for efficient, secure, and reliable data translation, providing today's warfighter confidence and preparation for working with foreign military personnel.
