SDL International launched SDLX Elite Computer Aided Translation solution with a freely downloadable edit module, SDLX Lite. SDLX Elite provides translation agencies and corporate localization departments with a centralized Translation Memory solution that includes unlimited remote freelance translator clients. Freelance translators can leverage and contribute to a master Translation Memory database. SDLX Elite will enable agencies and companies to immediately add specialist freelancers, whether or not the translators own compatible Translation Memory tools, at no extra cost to the freelancer or the organization. SDLX Elite Translation Memory increases translation quality and efficiency by breaking down sentences and paragraphs into translatable segments and extracting previously translated terms and phrases from a database for re-use. Compatible with Windows 2000, Office 2000 and XML/SGML, SDLX will support any language including double-byte and bi-directional languages such as Chinese, Japanese, Hebrew and Arabic. SDLX Elite with SDLX Lite is priced at US$2,000.00 and will be available September 2001.
