SDL International announced the release of SDL AuthorAssistant 2006, which accelerates time-to-market and improves brand consistency across enterprise-wide global authoring processes. SDL AuthorAssistant enables creators of corporate content to perform automated checks against existing translation assets, such as previously translated content and terminology glossaries, as well as against corporate writing guidelines. These capabilities have been enhanced with SDL AuthorAssistant 2006. The new release extends its reach to the entire global ecosystem by enabling organizations to access centralized translation assets in SDL Trados, SDL MultiTerm, SDLX and SDL TermBase formats. It saves time in the content lifecycle with additional customizable style checks and provides management insight into global authoring savings with a range of new reporting capabilities.
