Percussion Software and Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. announced a joint marketing agreement to deliver native XML-based multilingual content management solutions to companies developing international Web sites. Their combined solution, which includes the Lionbridge Globalization Platform and Percussion’s Rhythmyx Content Manager, will build globalization into the content management process at the beginning of the development cycle, increasing the velocity and efficiency of converting content into multiple languages and formats. Lionbridge’s enterprise-scale workflow system automates processes and offers collaboration capabilities for all parties working on a Web site project. To begin the translation process, Rhythmyx Content Manager creates, changes, or updates the content in an Oracle database in XML, HTML, or other formats. Lionbridge servers automatically detect changes to the English content and prepare it for translation. Once the new or changed content is translated, the Rhythmyx Content Manager then creates updates to the translated Web sites based on these changes.,
