Software Internationalization Tool Assists Entire Enterprises in Preparing Software Development for World-Market Opportunities
BOULDER, CO – August 4, 2009 – Lingoport, a leading provider of software internationalization and localization consulting services, announced the release of Globalyzer 3.0, their internationalization tool which monitors and enables software development at the source code level so that it’s adapted to gracefully support any language or locale sensitive format.
In today’s global market, many software development and technology firms generate 50% or more of their revenues outside their home marketplace. In order to avoid costly and time consuming post-release nightmares, multilingual software applications need to support the target language and cultural format issues such as dates, times, currencies, Unicode character encoding, and more. Internationalizing a software application during the early development stages ensures faster time-to-market, higher quality, and simpler subsequent localization, consequently increasing return-on-investment.
Globalyzer 3.0 measures, reports, and fixes internationalization bugs over a product’s lifecycle, across development teams and entire enterprises. Lingoport’s internationalization tool supports a wide variety of programming languages and database scripts. Globalyzer consists of a server which is used to manage customized internationalization rules and desktop and command-line clients. The desktop client visually steps developers through issues, and command-line client allows for automated code scanning and the generation of internationalization status reports. Additional features of Globalyzer 3.0 include database enabling for tracking internationalization status over time, enhanced reporting, integration with ANT, large improvements in scanning speed, the ability to scan extremely large code bases over multiple programming languages and database scripts, and much more.
In this harsh business environment, software development organizations rely more than ever on enterprise tools to help them measure and manage issues such as coding quality, memory usage and security. “Globalyzer prevents expensive surprises,” comments Adam Asnes, founder and CEO of Lingoport. He adds, “We have seen companies suffer tremendous impacts in lost revenue and ballooning costs when their global software release was delayed due to unexpected internationalization and localization issues. Globalyzer 3.0 was beta-tested by several leading software development companies and received glowing feedback.”
