BASIS TECHNOLOGY STRENGTHENS MULTILINGUAL CAPABILITIES IN MICROSOFT DYNAMICS AX
CAMBRIDGE, MA Basis Technology ( www.basistech.com) announced the successful completion of a Unicode-enabled version of Microsoft DynamicsTM AX 4.0 (formerly Microsoft Business Solutions Axapta), a business management solution designed for midsize to large companies. Basis Technology worked with Microsoft to simultaneously support a wide variety of European and Asian languages, including German, Russian, Czech, and Simplified Chinese in order to support their global customers. Microsoft Dynamics AX has user interfaces in a wide variety of languages, and fully supports multilingual data in a single database.
Microsoft Dynamics partnered with Basis Technology to audit, implement and Unicode enable Microsoft Dynamics AX, to handle multiple character sets in a single environment. The project included completely reengineering the software for Unicode and implementing the GB18030 character set required by China. In addition, Basis wrote a database upgrade tool which reads a Microsoft Dynamics AX 3.0 database and converts all the non-Unicode data to Unicode to work with Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0.
"Supporting our global customers and helping drive global business opportunities to them were important tasks for us to undertake," said Hans Skovgaard, Director of Development for Microsoft Dynamics AX. "Basis Technology's globalization solutions provided our team the support and expertise we needed to enhance the multilingual capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics AX."
Basis Technology has a long-standing relationship with Microsoft, recently having worked with MSN Search to advance their Asian search capabilities as well as provide information extraction software for their MSN Newsbot.
"Basis Technology has supported many Fortune 500 organizations in their globalization efforts. We are very happy to have been a part of the Microsoft Dynamics AX globalization team and are proud that we contributed to their multilanguage, multicurrency enterprise resource planning solution," said Wendy Sheehan, VP of Engineering at Basis Technology.
