Many of Slate’s internal components were created for academic research in machine learning, artificial intelligence and machine translation. The researchers use a free open source operating system called Linux. Although well-suited for research, Linux programs have functions that don’t work on the MS Windows operating system that businesses use for productivity applications like word processing and CAT tools.

Only Slate Rocks invested in updating these advanced MT productivity components to run on the world’s most popular business productivity operating system, Microsoft Windows desktop. You prefer Linux? We do that, too. Need MacOS? Please subscribe to our newsletter.
