Easily Manage the Localization of your Software into Multiple Languages

Sisulizer Ltd has released Sisulizer 2008, a powerful Windows
application that reduces the work required by software developers to
localize their applications into multiple languages. Sisulizer manages
the translation and localization process, while protecting source code
from prying eyes. Sisulizer quickly pays for itself by opening new
markets and new revenue streams, allowing developers’ end-users around
the globe to use software in the language of their choice.


Sisulizer 2008 has taken additional steps to provide translators with an
intuitive software program that requires no technical skills to run. The
latest version of Sisulizer now supports Windows Presentation Foundation
(WPF). This allows each of your translators to see classic Windows WIN32
Forms, Windows Forms, and the new WPF dialogs, without having to wrestle
with the .NET runtime. By freeing translators from the complexities of
the .NET environment, it makes it easier for them to concentrate on
translating the text, and not worrying about the underlying technology
of the translation program.

To further improve translators’ productivity, Sisulizer 2008’s new
spell-checker has a Word-like checker that inspects each word as you
type it. In addition to its built-in spell-checker, the program now
supports the Hunspell engine, with more than 80 languages. It also works
with the Lingsoft engine, with its excellent support for the
Scandinavian languages. Sisulizer easily handles all languages,
including right-to-left and double-byte languages.

Sisulizer 2008 includes hundreds of technical enhancements, including
support for WPF/XAML, support for .NET 3.0 and 3.5, support for Visual
Studio 2008, Access 2007, and Firebird, and many more.


Localization with Sisulizer is a simple three-step process:

First, use Sisulizer to scan the application and locate all of the
text. Sisulizer works directly with .NET, C++ Builder, Delphi, Visual
C++, Visual Basic, Visual Studio, Borland Developer Studio, Java, or
Windows binary files, along with XLIFF and .NET assembly. The program
works visually with HTML and XML. Sisulizer can also grab text from text
files and databases. You determine which Windows resources you want to
localize, including icons, menus, dialog boxes, strings, accelerators,
versions, and manifest resources. Sisulizer also operates in the mobile
world. The software supports .NET Compact Framework, Pocket PC, Symbian,
and J2ME.

Second, translate the text with Sisulizer’s visual editor. Begin the
translation work yourself, and mark each phrase as translated properly,
auto-translated, translated by best guess, out for review, or complete.
Alternatively, you can use Sisulizer’s Exchange Wizard to create and
send your translator a single file that contains a self-installing
Sisulizer Free Edition, along with your project file. Your translator
uses Sisulizer’s built-in WYSIWYG editor for all text in your
application. When your translator has completed the translation, they’ll
just need to sent back a single file to you. Your translator never has
access to your source code, ensuring that your valuable source code will
never be accidentally changed or intentionally shared with third parties.

Third, build the localized version. Simply run Sisulizer using the
translated file, and build the new version of your program in the new
language. There’s no need to manually track where each text snippet
belongs. Sisulizer manages the localization project, and automatically
builds your new version. In addition, Sisulizer’s Translation Memory
feature saves time and money when you translate your next application.
Sisulizer remembers all of the words and phrases that it has translated,
and you have immediate access to all of these earlier translations in
your next project.

In addition to support for unlimited strings and languages, the
Professional Edition (EUR 1,199 or $1,879(US)) and Enterprise Edition
(EUR 1,749 or $2,749(US)) support visual HTML localization, local
database localization, translation validation, pseudo translation
support, spell-checking, integrated translation memory, and the ability
to import comma-delimited files, localized files, local database
information, and data from other localization tools. The Enterprise
Edition lets you work visually, in WYSIWYG mode, with HTML that has
embedded JSP, ASP, or PHP. In addition, it offers the ability to import
from a server database and to do server database localization, shared
translation memory on the database server, a command-line tool, and an
interface to machine translation services.

The new Standard Edition (EUR 299 or $499(US)) is designed for MicroISVs
and makes localization affordable for the smallest software development
companies. It can localize C++Builder, Delphi, Visual Basic, Visual C++,
and Java applications. It also supports localizing software for mobile
computing platforms and various text formats such as INI and PO.

Another new version, the Translator Edition (EUR 399 or $629(US)), is
used by enterprises with translators in multiple countries. The
Translator Edition speeds up the process by taking some of the workload
away from the software developer. Instead of sending the translated text
back to the developer, the translator can build the localized software.

Sisulizer is used by software development companies large and small.
Customers include GE Healthcare, Philips, Qualcomm, Intuit, Sony,
Siemens, Renault, General Dynamics, and Symantec.
