Omniscien Technologies has built engines using only Foundation Data. These “Foundation Engines” can be made available to customers on request. However, it should be noted that these engines are not designed to be used for translation in the real-world and in general should not be used for this purpose. As such, we do not recommend that a Foundation Engine used for anything other than an initial starting point from which to build your own custom engine.

The data in Foundation Engines is designed as, and intended to be used as, a base to build upon. The data has been neutralized, normalized, cleaned and prepared as a starting point or "foundation" for customizing your own custom translation engines with minimal bias towards a specific domain. On top of this data, a customer’s own data is added to focus the custom engine on a specific domain.
