New York, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/23/2007 --Lingobit Technologies today announces Lingobit Localizer 5.0, a software localization tool that provides development teams with an effective solution to facilitate and streamline the software localization process and communication between programmers, translators and testers. Lingobit Localizer 5.0 delivers a host of new features and enhancements to reduce application localization costs, maximize IT productivity and ensure faster software localization.
What’s New in Lingobit Localizer 5.0?
Taking advantage of the expertise that has established Lingobit’s award-winning Lingobit Localizer as a widely adopted standard in software localization, Lingobit Localizer 5.0 extends its functionality with complementary workflow management capabilities that provide the following key benefits:
- Support of .NET Framework version 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0.
- Lingobit Localizer now works on Windows Vista.
- Ini-files support is improved
- Additional flexibility for translators in the localization process thanks to the option to import and export a project to UTF8/16 text format. This means strings can be edited using any external text editor. This ability is of great use for translators, who can localize the software using their favorite word-processing editor, such as Microsoft Word.
What’s Lingobit Localizer?
Lingobit Localizer 5.0 simplifies communication and workflow throughout the entire localization process by offering users a unified interface and productivity tools, such as Automated QA, Validation Expert, Translation Memory, etc. Localization can be done in-house or delegated to another company. In the latter case, translation tasks are distributed via self-extracting localization kits with a project file (no source-code) and a ‘lite’ edition of Localizer for translators. Lingobit’s project monitoring tools give a localization manager the ability to see what is going on at each stage of the localization process, which ensures accountability, gives clarity and control to efficiently manage localization across several steps.
