PowerGlot Software Releases PowerGlot 1.1
Premier Localization Tool for Macintosh Adds New Features
For Immediate Release
(Paris, France) January 11, 1998 – PowerGlot Software announced today the
release of PowerGlot 1.1, a new version of its premier localization tool
for Macintosh software. PowerGlot enables developers to make their products
available worldwide in the native language of their choice, including
2-byte languages like Japanese, Chinese and Korean. PowerGlot 1.1 extracts
text from applications, helps perform the translations and then builds the
localized applications, with an easy to use, fast and powerful interface.
PowerGlot 1.1 adds more than 20 new features and improvements, along with a
handful of bug fixes, mostly for non-roman languages users. Retail price is
US$99.00, with discounts for multiple copies. Site licenses are available.
Upgrades are free for current users. Information and a demo version are
available at: (http://www.powerglot.com/).
PowerGlot 1.1 contains AppleScript support which extends the software’s
functionalities. Import and export scripts are provided, along with other
useful AppleScripts. It contains full drag and drop support, integrated
on-line help with AppleGuide and help balloons.
“PowerGlot is the most significant addition to the suite of tools we use
for our cross-platform (Macintosh/Windows) single and double-byte
localization projects.” said Ted Wadman, president of Terra Pacific Inc., a
localization company based in Corvallis, Oregon. “It is easy to learn and
has leveraging capabilities for reusing previous Mac translations and
exporting capabilities so we can use the translated Mac strings as a basis
for our translation memory tools on the Windows side.”
