Alpnet Releases Globelix

ALPNET, Inc. announced the release of GLOBELIX, a fully integrated translation database system. A client-server application for enterprise-wide globalization and localization management, GLOBELIX allows companies to get their products faster to worldwide markets by significantly reducing the time it takes to translate product information. GLOBELIX connects an unlimited number of translators and users in a globally networked environment, offering significant advantages over first-generation translation memory and productivity tools, which provide isolated functionality on a workstation level. GLOBELIX also allows linking of language resource data in an unlimited number of languages and allows searches of language combinations in all directions. The technology can be integrated into most enterprise applications, like content management, ERP systems, and corporate Intranets. GLOBELIX allows translators, authors and information users to connect to a central database and share localized content over the Internet and VPNs. GLOBELIX uses Oracle’s 8i engine as the translation database backbone. It provides the functions of alignment of text and management of language resource data on various component levels. A complete Unicode-based model, GLOBELIX is SGML/XML-optimized and compatible with most other business document formats. It can easily be integrated within corporate workflow systems, content management and authoring systems, and other enterprise application systems. The GLOBELIX Editor is a thin Java-based ‘client’ software program that allows translators to utilize all the power of the GLOBELIX technology on their remote workstation without having to load and maintain the hefty functionality on their local PC. www.alpnet.com

NQL to Offer Enterprise Content Management Platform

NQL Inc. announced that it is preparing an enterprise content management platform for release in the first quarter of 2001. As an out-of-the-box enterprise solution, the NQL IQ ContentAnywhere software will be targeted toward large-scale clients such as solution providers, VARs, portal companies and e-integrators, as well as vertical markets.

The platform consists of content aggregation and delivery layers, an intelligent content cache, and a taxonomy. The taxonomy describes content in terms of categories, access names, information sources, lifetime, and a collection schedule. For desktop PC users, the platform enables insertion of all content types into mail messages, word processors, spreadsheets, and presentation systems, to name a few examples. For lesser-known applications, a desktop content browser is provided for users to select content by name and copy to a clipboard and paste into applications. For application developers, NQL IQ ContentAnywhere software provides APIs for Visual Basic and Java. Automated communications between applications, systems and organizations are accommodated by web services such as Microsoft.NET. For web sites on NT servers, NQL IQ ContentAnywhere software provides filters that enable new tags for content that can be embedded in HTML pages for on-the-fly acquisition. The platform also provides content viewers for mobile devices such as connected Palm devices, pocket PCs and WAP smart phones. www.nqli.com
