SDL Releases Global Information Management Applications

Jan 31, 2006

SDL International, a provider of global information management (GIM) solutions, has announced the latest releases of its enterprise GIM applications, SDL Translation Management System 2006 and SDL TeamWorks 2006.

SDL GIM solutions manage content throughout the global information lifecycle--from authoring through content management to on-line and off-line publishing across world markets. SDL Translation Management System and SDL TeamWorks are applications for GIM solutions, unifying the translation and localization supply chain and linking multiple vendors to provide the collaboration, control, integration and process flow required to prepare content for a global audience. The new releases integrate SDL and TRADOS technologies. Whether working online or offline, all participants can leverage the same standard technologies and have access to the same standards-based translation assets, such as translation memory and terminology. SDL GIM applications further protect those assets with full support for content standards such as XML, DITA, TMX, and XLIFF.

SDL Translation Management System 2006 delivers new capabilities for enterprise administration and integration, including LDAP for user authentication, enhanced Web services and richer metadata support to facilitate process automation. Also included is interoperability with SDLX 2005.1, SDL TRADOS 7.1 for translation memory and SDL MultiTerm 7.1 for terminology management, and enhanced standards support for processing DITA-compliant XML. SDL TeamWorks 2006 adds editing and review capabilities in a browser-based environment, as well as a new QA verification plug-in framework. Also included is vendor interaction through a new browser-based vendor portal and integration with SDL TRADOS 7.1 and SDL MultiTerm 7.1.
