Developing new languages for Central Europe (Czech, Bulgarian, Slovakian, Magyar)



a major bank, KBC, is working across Europe and wants to deploy one AI technology across the group.

They've started off with Watson Conversation service in Dutch and are very happy with the quality. Considering WDS is coming now in Dutch, they're eager to start using it. 

So they would like to see the other languages which they require in the group to be available. These languages are Czech, Bulgarian, Slovakian, Magyar.

I'll raise the same question with the other APIs as well.

    Hi Stefan, thanks for your feedback and I agree. That's why I've created the idea in the 4 APIs which are for me intricately linked (WKS, WDS, WNLU and to a lesser extent WCS). Still having said that WCS is a starting point for many clients and it certainly is for this one.

    I'll reach out to Alyssa as you suggested and I already did. It will be important to understand how we can best leverage the Blue Umbrella team and make sure we're able to progress quicker in this crucial domain of additional language support.

    WKS does not have its own independent language roadmap - the NLU language roadmap aligns with the overarching Watson language roadmap.

    Please work with Alyssa Simpson on promoting the requested languages to the Watson language roadmap. Only then WKS (NLU, WDS,...) will be able to include support for these languages in its own roadmap.
