With Salesforce, one of the key values to customers is the capability of customization on their platform. “An account” can become “a client” in a few clicks. To support that feature in other languages, they created an in-house grammar engine called Grammaticus and recently open-sourced it. In this session, they will demonstrate how Grammaticus functions in their daily job and its implications for their processes and how they worked with their partner to ease the burden on their translators.

Takeaways: Attendees will be able to learn how the grammar engine Grammaticus maintains grammatical correctness by supporting genders, cases, pluralization and starts-with of nouns as well as articles and adjective declensions for 65+ languages.
