  • 04 February, 2009 06:47

<p>Sydney, 4 February 2009 - Open Text (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global leader in Enterprise Content Management (ECM), today announced availability of the latest release of Open Text Web Solutions. Available to customers now, this new release offers a number of additional enhancements to what is already a core strength of Open Text Web Solutions: Helping customers translate, manage and synchronise multiple websites worldwide. Web Solutions is an integral component of the Open Text ECM Suite, the industry’s most comprehensive suite of content services used by tens of thousands of organisations worldwide.</p>
<p>The enhanced functionality is part of a complete solution called Open Text Web Solutions for Multi-Sites that gives customers everything they need to develop a global Web presence. It helps large enterprises to more efficiently share corporate information, leverage existing translation memory tools such as Across Systems® or SDL TRADOS®, and to personalise the user experience. For small and mid-size businesses, it provides a simple and cost-effective tool for expanding globally.</p>
<p>The challenge of managing global websites across many markets is growing as companies work to establish their brands across many diverse markets in an increasingly competitive global arena. Customer communication in a local language is growing in importance in marketing and sales, and is critical for companies trying to expand in key markets. Websites are a critical part of this equation but many organisations are overwhelmed by the processes involved in managing multiple sites across many countries.</p>
<p>"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."</p>
<p>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 standardised XLIFF formats. XLIFF, which stands for XML Localisation Interchange File Format, streamlines the exchange of localisation data among companies, vendors and across software tools.</p>
