TRADOS Inc., a provider of global information solutions, and Arbortext, a provider of enterprise publishing software, have formed an alliance that closely ties the authoring and publishing processes with the entire globalization cycle. As a result, the alliance creates a global enterprise publishing solution that is intended to control and streamline the global content workflow.
Addressing the challenges facing global companies including delays in global product introductions, conflicting messages across regions, and rising localization costs, the Arbortext-TRADOS solution accelerates the availability of content to global markets. Features of the solution include the ability for companies to create and manage content at both the micro-level of words, terms, phrases, and sentences and the macro-level of paragraphs, sections, or larger chunks at the front of the lifecycle. The new ability to preview documents is designed to ensure that content is translation-friendly and minimizes localization costs. At the end of the lifecycle, customers have more publishing options to deliver local content in various formats.
