So by using cloud computing technology to collect, categorize the existing content then provide the suitable word prediction list to the editors.

    This is a convenient text input method, which can provide a categorized prediction list based on exist content. It is achievable by a self learning back-end machine, and the machine has a prediction engine. The engine calculates the category then provide appropriate prediction list under different condition.

Advantages: 1. High flexibility: different words pool for different categories 2. Time saving and user friendly.

    3. Automatically update category of the words 4. Automatically add new word to database 5. Cross languages: when a word to be categorized, the translations of this word can auto-categorized in different languages DB.
