Translations.com and FatWire Software announced the debut of a combined product offering to eliminate barriers to cooperation between global resources. The integration of these two products provides a collaboration-based solution for localizing global content into multiple languages. The two companies partnered to develop the FatWire Adaptor for GlobalLink, which embeds GlobalLink functionality in Content Server. From within the Content Server interface, users can identify which assets need to be sent out for localization and keep track of the progress of previously localized assets to facilitate updates and revisions. Assets requiring localization are automatically extracted from Content Server and routed to the appropriate user for localization. Upon completion of localization tasks, GlobalLink reinserts the asset into the appropriate place in Content Server. The solution provides workflow integration so that a localization task can be added to one or more existing workflows in FatWire Content Server. Then, whenever an asset reaches that workflow task, it will be sent out for localization through GlobalLink. Upon the return of the localized version of the asset, GlobalLink will initiate a configured workflow. http://www.fatwire.com, http://www.translations.com
