Tolkvox - bridging every language barrier in the public sector (phase 2)
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 900 000|
|Project duration||June 2018 - June 2019|
Purpose and goal
The goal of the project was to strengthen Tolkvox´s customer value and impact through (1) prototypes of functional improvements and on-boarding process and (2) validation of Tolkvox´s value in health care. Both have been achieved with good results. In addition, within the project, a development consortium for quality-assured machine translation in healthcare has been started, together with Capio, Aleris X and Rise Interactive.
Expected results and effects
Through the project, Tolkvox AB has created and validated prototypes of functional improvements and of large-scale on-boarding process, for example, a whole hospital. In addition, we have validated Tolkvox´s value in healthcare and established a development consortium for quality-assured machine translation in healthcare. This has given us greater customer value and impact, which significantly strengthened our commercial potency.
Planned approach and implementation
The project has been built around four concrete activities, the relevance of which have been the result of the iterative and user processes in the project´s phase 1. For two of the activities, prototypes have been built in collaboration with large customers - Karolinska hospital and the Employment Office - and tested directly with hundreds of users. The third activity has been a feasibility study, which was conducted as a direct response to feedback from the Stockholm region, one of the service´s largest potential customers, and in close collaboration with five healthcare providers.
