Engkoo: English Learning Vertical Search from Bing and MS Research in China

8 minutes, 8 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

Matt Scott of Microsoft Research walks us through Engkoo: the new “dictionary” vertical search of Bing in China. What makes this English-Chinese assistance tool unique is that it unifies human translation mined from the web, machine translation, and a language learning experience, into one easy to use search and explore interface. By continuously discovering and processing high quality translation knowledge on the Internet, this technology can be used to close the ever expanding translation gap between English and Chinese.


Engkoo is a collaboration between Bing, MSN, and Microsoft Research – leveraging years of research in Natural Language Computing, Speech, Human Computer Interaction and Web Search & Mining. Because the technology is language independent, next steps include building on it for other language pairs in the future

  • This is incredible!

  • Engkoo contains many interesting and promising ideas. I would love seeing these implemeted for other languages (such as German) as well as being integrated directly with Bing.


    For example, searching for SOAP and limiting results to the technical domain makes a lot of sense in a  general purpose searchdecision engine.
