New tool quickly quantifies challenges to software code and web site internationalization
BOULDER, Colorado, January 09, 2008 — Lingoport, the leading provider of software internationalization tools and services, announced the release of Globalyzer Diagnostics, a revolutionary new means of assessing source code readiness for global markets. For the first time, Globalyzer Diagnostics enables software professionals to quantify the scope of their code’s internationalization (“i18n”) challenges – with minimal time and effort. And the price is right as well – free for unlimited use.
The First International “Health Check” for Source Code
Globalyzer Diagnostics provides an easily understood “health check” of source code across several critical problem areas that often impede localization success. It’s the first solution that bridges the gap technology firms encounter when they undertake global expansion without clear understanding of the arcane language, character set support, formatting and cultural problems present in their existing application code. Without this knowledge, localization projects can bog down, threatening time-to-market goals and, ultimately, revenue objectives”Lingoport is absolutely heading in the right direction with Globalyzer Diagnostics,” remarked (someone) from (client), a long-time Lingoport customer. “Until now, there’s been no practical way to quantify the range of issues that exist in virtually all source code before localization. The alternative – painstaking line-by-line analysis – is simply too costly and time-consuming at an early stage in the process. Globalyzer Diagnostics is a useful tool for starting to understand the scope of i18n challenges, without heavy investment of time and resources.”
“Globalyzer Diagnostics is the product of Lingoport’s long experience in assessing the code issues that impede international goals,” commented Adam Asnes, founder and CEO of Lingoport. “We’re seeing a growing interest in shining a brighter light on the i18n problem, as competitive pressures make timely, efficient application localization critical to technology leaders. It only makes sense to hand initial assessment capabilities to corporations and localization companies in the form of Globalyzer Diagnostics.”
A New Light on the i18n Market Need
A study recently released by Lingoport suggests a critical knowledge and capacity gap among technology firms and their service providers with respect to the i18n situation. This insight helped raise the urgency to release Globalyzer Diagnostics to a marketplace that’s only beginning to understand the scope and impact of the i18n issue.
