Simplify text or Generate Multi-lingual Multi-document Summaries


Simplish uses an 850-word vocabulary based on C.K. Ogden's Basic English plus 100 specialized words to be selected and 50 international words for paraphrasing through fully rewriting text in simple English. It also includes our own 30,000-words dictionary to help process legal/scientific/technical material; with these complex words explained in footnotes using the Basic English vocabulary.

This approach allows for infinite expressiveness using a FIXED finite vocabulary. Other methods of rewording or paraphrasing text typically change only those words or phrases they have a replacement for but leave many words untouched, so that the final vocabulary is unpredicatable. Our system replaces ALL words so the final text has a finite predictable 1,000 words vocabulary.


Our summaries are produced on the basis of semantic relevance and NOT word-frequency, which is not a reliable method since often important material is not mentioned often and could be missed. By using our legal, scientific and business dictionaries, even complex material can be summarized successfully. Platinum subscribers are able to use multiple languages both for summaries and also for rewording text.

Our method involves generating an ideogram (graphical pictures or symbols that represent an idea or concept) for each sentence, generating a volume of interest around the sequence produced by the first document, and including in the summary any sentences from other documents that fall within this volume; i.e. have added knowledge. Platinum subscribers are able to use multiple languages both for multi-document summaries and also for rewording.

Basic English

English is the dominant language on the web and in general for communicating today. In a wide range of areas such as business, Law, entertainment, technology, science and even literature, it acts as the lingua Franca that allows us to interact successfully in today's global economy. Moreover, English contains more words than any other language on the planet; more than 1 million in total.


We use a different approach to the error-prone process of translation between languages: we aim Simplish at users who have some knowledge of English and so will be able to read the text after a process of Simplification. When translating from one language to another, particulaly between languages with different linguistic roots, sometimes crucial information can be wrongly translated.


Simplish can improve reading, learning, and teaching by rewording difficult English, for faster comprehension. It helps teachers produce engaging lessons using a fixed reduced vocabulary every student understands, and thereby help improve learning outcomes. In fact, Basic English grammar is not different from that of standard English, it simply takes in only a part that can later be expanded bit by bit as the student becomes more fluent.

Simplification for AI

Potentially, Basic English is to Artificial Intelligence what Arabic numerals are to Mathematics. The advantages of using a small finite vocabulary of 1,000 words, instead of the 1 million plus of standard English, far outweigh the disadvantages caused by a small loss in information content or conversion mistakes. Simplish is currently being used by customers in applications such as Machine Learning, Data Mining, virtual assistants and analytics systems.


Using our general cognition engine and Simplish, we are able to generate a multi-lingual multi-document summary, based on a representation of knowledge in the form of a sequence of multi-dimensional ideograms, very similar to the ideas behind Chinese symbols, making our system capable of “understanding” language and producing more coherent, better quality summaries than those produced using conventional methods.

Summarizing algorithm

Among other things, important information is often not mentioned many times, and so standard methods can yield inadequate results. Our algorithm does not look at specific pre-selected words, word frequencies, ontologies, topic maps, word sequences, pattern-matching or any prior training! Our strategy is based on Peirce's ideas on abduction and uses relevance as the criterion for including/excluding sentences.
