Now GRIN is Accessible in 141 Different Languages!

by | Mar 9, 2015 | 4 comments

The Global Registry for Inherited Neuropathies (GRIN) has implemented Google Translate.  Why did we choose Google?  Because Google is leading the way in teaching computers how to interpret meaning, avoiding the traditional method of decoding language.

Software that decodes language can turn ‘kindergarten’ into ‘children garden’.  Instead, “Google mines existing translated material, recognizes how words or phrases typically correspond, and uses probability to deliver the best match based on context”.1

Having the ability to communicate with patients in 141 different languages will hopefully result in more patients joining GRIN globally to prepare for future clinical trials, for example, Pharnext’s PXT-3003 phase III clinical trials for later this year.
