Media Services. Digitization of Archives
ATAPY provides a range of data digitization and conversion services, such as:
- Printed materials digitization/conversion
- Scanning and data capture services
- XML markup
- Format conversion
- Computer linguistics services
ATAPY Media Service Department specializes in challenging data capture tasks which require additional programming effort due to the complicated nature of the material — such as scientific content, technical drawings or wide-format printed media — or considerable amount of manual labor, or both.
ATAPY’s strong Software Development Department specializing particularly in document imaging and OCR solutions backs up the conversion process. A variety of inhouse-developed data entry automation tools, as well as a team of qualified experts on board, allow to streamline almost any routine task involved in a data conversion project, and to dramatically slash the percentage of manual work and, therefore, the costs. In large projects, budgets can be cut by as much as 40% by automating or semi-automating manual stages.
Due to our location in Novosibirsk, Russia, we employ qualified multi-lingual staff: data entry operators and Project Managers. For ABBYY Software House, ATAPY has performed a number of computer linguistics projects involving the creation of electronic dictionaries and OCR pattern training for ABBYY FineReader — the type of work which may be accomplished by qualified philologists only. ATAPY language skills include all major European languages (English, German, French, Italian, Spanish), as well as Old European and classical languages (Ancient Greek, Latin, Gothic).
