SAN FRANCISCO (03/31/2000) - IBM Corp. has launched WebSphere Transcoding Publisher, software that dynamically translates Web information such as text -- HTML and XML -- and images, into other formats such as WML (wireless markup language).
The software, which is open-standard and Java-based, can transfer Web information to handheld devices like PDAs (personal digital assistants), smart phones and car browsers without having to rewrite the applications, IBM said in a statement today.
WebSphere Translating Publisher works on a number of platforms, including AIX, Linux, Solaris and Microsoft Windows NT and Windows 2000, and is available in 10 languages, including English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Korean and Brazilian Portuguese, IBM said.
IBM did not disclose pricing information for the software but did say it was immediately available for the mass market.
