Microsoft Closes on $16-Billion Acquisition of Nuance
Microsoft announced it was buying the company in April 2021 but faced a setback in December.
Microsoft has closed on its approximately $16 billion acquisition of speech recognition company Nuance.
微软已经完成了对语音识别公司 Nuance 约160亿美元的收购。
The deal, which was announced last year, helps Microsoft get more entrenched into hospitals and the health care industry through Nuance’s widely used medical dictation and transcription tools. The acquisition is Microsoft’s second-largest after its $26 billion purchase of career networking service LinkedIn in 2016.
这项去年宣布的收购，通过 Nuance 广泛使用的医疗听写和转录工具，帮助微软进一步巩固了在医院和医疗保健行业的地位。此次收购是微软的第二大收购案，仅次于2016年微软斥资260亿美元收购职业社交网站 LinkedIn。
