The Valencian Generalitat applies artificial intelligence to eliminate sexist terms from its texts

Themis is a software based on artificial intelligence that transforms texts into inclusive gender language.Currently, the Valencian government plans to use it to edit the writings of its officials and favor this language, avoiding prejudices towards a particular sex or gender.The system, developed by Spaniards, is the most complete in the market as it intuitively detects any sexist term, offering instead a wide range of more neutral alternatives.

The workers of the Generalitat Valenciana usually write their texts in the Microsoft Word computer program.This is one of the best known and used for word processing.Now, they can use this new tool as an extension to Word or as a desktop application only available for Windows 10.

These types of IA -based solutions are already widely used by important global companies such as Amazon and Uber.However, more and more brands are made, since a new awareness is being awakened in the use of language and how it can be used more balanced. It is the new recipe for digital marketing in the 21st century.

Corporate reputation is the most important

Artificial intelligence (AI) Themis can be hired by any public or private company.It offers five languages: Spanish from Spain, Spanish from Latin America, Catalan, Valencian and Balearic.In total, it includes more than 1,300 potentially sexist words and can be replaced by more than 100,000 inclusive words.It acts quickly and easily, and promises to have a positive impact on companies and today's society.

The software was launched in 2007 under the premise that language "influences people's thinking and aptitudes."Likewise, society is increasingly aware of this reality, therefore, "demands public entities and companies a communication where anyone feels identified."

Javier García Pellejero, CEO of Natural Language Analysis, S.L.(Nala), a company responsible for Themis, explains that he uses "the most innovative techniques of artificial intelligence", specifically, in the processing of natural language.

In addition, Garcia explains that the system works by analyzing a text and detecting all the non -inclusive words that are part of its dictionaries.«These terms are associated with synonyms that are inclusive.Thus, the system shows you these suggestions and it is you who chooses the word that best suits your criteria and your audience, ”he says.

In the desktop version it is possible to analyze documents, folders, mails and even websites.«The really incredible is the plugin for Microsoft Word.It allows to detect and correct sexist language even faster, ”insists Sara Llorens Morillo, Business Development Manager of Nala.It should be noted that Themis dictionaries do not integrate suggestions finished in ‘x’, ‘@’, ‘*’ or ‘e’.Although it is possible to include these terms manually.

Since its launch, Nala has been making adjustments to Themis to be able to make it more intuitive and useful for its customers."Themis generates added value in your company's texts and communications, and demonstrates professionalism to your audience," reads on its website.So far, its most important client is the Generalitat Valenciana.

The Generalitat seeks to be more inclusive

For a few weeks, the Valencia government planned to integrate an AI tool that favors the so -called inclusive language to its software.Both in your communiqués, trades and missives.Thanks to Thanmis, from now on they can use terms and intuitive terms that make demographic groups with a different sexual identity and sexual orientation.

The Generalitat's decision is not a surprise, since they have long maintained policies in favor of a more neutral language and without prejudice.In fact, at the beginning of 2019 the Equality Commission together with the Department of Equality and Inclusive Policies approved an inclusive language guide to avoid falling into a sexist language.In 2011, the Municipal Regulation for the use of non -sexist language was also approved in the Valencian Consistory.

What does the RAE say about inclusive language?

Recently, the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE) declared its position regarding inclusive language and the use of the vowel "E" as an alternative for words that indicate its gender with the vowels "A" and "O".Through the #Ra -Consultas section on Twitter and in response to a user, they said that the use of the vowel «E» to state an inclusive genre is foreign to the morphology of the Spanish language.He also pointed out that it is "unnecessary," because the grammatical masculine already fulfills that function.

But the role of the SAR is not to impose or recommend the use of words, that decision is citizens and the use of inclusive language has been maintained since the LGBT+ community began using it to include all genres within language.In this way, the words "all", "friend", "elle", among others, are increasingly pronounced.
