MeaningCloud is a Software as a Service product that enables users to embed text analytics and semantic processing in any application or system. It was previously branded as Textalytics.

MeaningCloud extends the concept of semantic API with a cloud-based framework that makes the integration of semantic processing into any system something close to a plug-and-play experience.[1] MeaningCloud is available both in SaaS mode and on-premises.


  • Topic Extraction: identifies appearances of named entities and abstract concepts in the text.
  • Text Classification: assigns a text to one or several categories in a predefined taxonomy.
  • Sentiment Analysis: assigns a polarity (positive, negative, neutral) to a document or to the individual topics or attributes appearing in a document (aspect-based sentiment).
  • Text Clustering: discovers the underlying themes in a document collection and groups these documents according to their similarities and their adherence to those themes.

Integration and customization[edit]

Advanced APIs provide a functionality optimized for diverse applications and ease of use. In addition, customization and integration capabilities offer a fast learning curve and a short time to obtain results.

  • Customized resource management tools allow users to easily incorporate their own semantic resources (dictionaries, taxonomies, sentiment models) to adapt the operation of the system to their needs.
  • SDKs and plug-ins increase the convenience and integrability of the APIs in the most common environments and platforms.[2] MeaningCloud provides SDKs for Java, Python, PHP, and Visual Basic, and plug-ins for Microsoft Excel and GATE.[3]
