  1. The API is not working in German (mkt=de-DE&mode=proof)

    The API is not working in German (mkt=de-DE&mode=proof)

    Response for the text 'Hollo, wrld!' and params = "mkt=en-US&mode=proof" is okay (see at the bottom), response for 'Hollo Weld!' params = "mkt=de-DE&mode=proof" is [].

    Correct answer for en-US:
    [{'offset': 0,
    'token': 'Hollo',
    'type': 'UnknownToken',
    'suggestions': [{'suggestion': 'Hello', 'score': 0.910459556342145},
    {'suggestion': 'Hollow', 'score': 0.863230438073279}]},
    {'offset': 7,
    'token': 'wrld',
    'type': 'UnknownToken',
    'suggestions': [{'suggestion': 'world', 'score': 0.910459556342145}]}]

      • The API is auto-correcting certain numbers to currencies

        The service seems to be having some kind of training data bias for some inputs. Sending only numbers like 50000, 250000, 500000 etc., is returning $50,000, $250,000 and $500,000 respectively. This does not seem to happen for other numbers like 5000, 10000, etc. The service should never assume that a number denotes monetary value unless there is more context surrounding it.

        • Fix the service to correct scenarios highlighted in your examples.

          Your examples show Stephen Spielberg being spell check corrected to Steven Spielberg. However, your example does not correct Stephen to Steven.

          • Add the ability to train BSC on AD/AAD

            For spell check on names, it would be incredibly useful to train the service on an Active Directory (or AAD) model or an arbitrary model.
