The Centre for Text Technology (CTexT) is a research and development centre at the Potchefstroom Campus of the North-West University. CTexT does research on human language technology and develops language technology products for the South African languages.

Human language technology makes the interaction between people and machines (computers) easier by allowing people to communicate with computers in natural languages (our normal languages such as isiZulu or Afrikaans). It also teaches computers to understand and produce human language (speech and text), so people can have access to new technologies in the language of their choice.

CTexT's four main activities are:

  • Research;
  • Development;
  • Commercialisation of products and services; and
  • Maintenance of products and support to end-users/clients.

CTexT's focus areas (within the field of human language technology in South Africa) are:

  • Development of applications and resources for easier interaction between people and computers (e.g. spelling and grammar checkers, machine translation systems and data development); and
