Across Systems to Bring IAI QA Technology to U.S. Markets

Across and IAI market multilingual document system

Across Systems, the provider of the Across Language Server, and IAI (Institute for Applied Information Science at Saarland University) have expanded their relationship and broadened the integration of their two technologies.

The direct connection of the Controlled Language Authoring Tool (CLAT) to the Across component crossAuthor allows companies operating at an international level to create multilingual documents using both rule-based and statistical methods. Across will market the combined solution in the United States in the first quarter of 2009 making it available as an add-on for MS Word, MS PowerPoint, Adobe FrameMaker, Adobe InDesign, PTC Arbortext and MadCap Flare. CLAT was developed by IAI and is based on the same technology as "DUDEN Korrektor." This tool facilitates proofing of texts, for example, to verify compliance with grammar rules or with corporate writing guidelines and language conventions. Users will be able to view matches from the translation memory and the terminology system as well as results of the rule-based CLAT, using the matches in a single work environment for optimizing their texts.

The Across Language Server serves as a platform for corporate language resources and translation processes centrally storing specialized and corporate terminology as well as a translation memory. The component crossAuthor for translation-oriented authoring allows users to utilize these resources for writing the source text by enabling authors to use consistent wording for which translations already exist.

The direct connection of CLAT and crossAuthor enables the reuse of existing wording and terminological consistency as well as linguistic correctness of texts and compliance with defined style rules.

"The integrated solution combines translation-oriented authoring and linguistic quality checks," says Daniel Nackovski, president of Across Systems in the United States. "It is available for all common editors and we will be offering it in the United States as of the first quarter of 2009."
