Dirk De Hertog studied Dutch and English literature and linguistics at the University of Leuven, where he obtained his MA degree in 2005. After some years of gaining overall work experience, mainly as a software engineer for a wholesale business, he decided to combine his insights in linguistics with his computational skills.

Currently he is working towards his PhD in linguistics, in the field of Automatic Term Extraction.

The platform starts from existing corpus-linguistic analysis techniques to develop automatic knowledge acquisition algorithms for the creation of terminological resources.
