across Systems and Clay Tablet Form International Strategic Integration Partnership
KARLSBAD, Germany and TORONTO, ON – Oct. 9, 2007 – In advance of the Localization World Conference in Seattle, across Systems (Germany) a provider of corporate translation management systems, and Clay Tablet Technologies (Canada), a provider of software that integrates any content management systems with any translation management systems, have announced a strategic partnership. To provide integrated translation solutions for enterprise clients and translation service providers, Clay Tablet software will support connectivity with across Systems technology.
The across Language Server is a central platform for all corporate language resources and translation processes. It comprises a translation memory system and a terminology system as well as powerful tools for efficient project management and workflow control.
Clay Tablet (www.clay-tablet.com) software uses the open interfaces of the across Language Server to help connect it to any content management system, ERP (enterprise resource planning) systems or other data sources, and to automate recurring translation processes. The seamless transfer of content to be translated and a high degree of automation enable faster and more cost-efficient high-quality translations.
"Billions of dollars are being spent on translations, as enterprise globalization and localization accelerates,” said Robinson Kelly, CEO and co-founder of Clay Tablet Technologies. “Today, the greatest potential for cost efficiency improvements doesn’t lie in the actual task of translating, but rather in the streamlining of the processes and the automated transfer of content across different systems. The across Language Server supports this streamlining brilliantly; therefore, the Clay Tablet partnership with across is strategically very important to us."
across CEO Niko Henschen agrees. "Open interfaces are critical to across. Being an integration specialist, Clay Tablet is an ideal partner for us,” says Henschen. “Moreover, Clay Tablet supports us in our internationalization strategy and our entry to the North American market."
