Open Text Web Solutions goes global

February 4, 2009: The challenges of managing and synchronising multiple Web sites worldwide is a major focus of the latest release of Open Text Web Solutions.

The enhanced functionality is part of a complete solution called Open Text Web Solutions for Multi-Sites that leverages existing translation memory tools such as Across Systems or SDL TRADOS, and to personalise the user experience.

"The challenges of building an effective Web presence across diverse markets around the world are greater than ever, as user expectations become increasingly sophisticated," said Daniel Kraft, Senior Vice President, Corporate Strategy at Open Text.

"With the latest release, we've made it easy to share and distribute content on a global basis to ensure consistent branding, and to attract and engage visitors in their native language on a site that is personalised to reflect their culture and needs."

For organisations with a global presence, Web Solutions for Multi-Sites adds new content distribution services that make it easy for Web localisation teams to share and update content via a centralised content pool. Team members are automatically notified when content changes or updates become available.

Once localised content is added to this pool all countries that use the same language can use this content for their local websites. A new Content Translation Management module offers translation workflow integration, expanded support for computer-aided translation tools, and export to standardized XLIFF formats. XLIFF, which stands for XML Localisation Interchange File Format, streamlines the exchange of localisation data among companies, vendors and across software tools.
