Wednesday, 8 July, 2009

BOULDER, CO (July 8, 2009) - ENLASO Corporation, a provider of translation and localization solutions, today announced that it will present a live Webinar July 16, 2009, titled "An Introduction to the Okapi Tools.”

The Okapi Framework—an open-source project—provides a set of cross-platform components and libraries that assist the development of localization and translation-related tools. The Framework allows tools developers and localizers to build new localization processes or enhance existing ones to best meet their needs, while preserving compatibility and interoperability.

In this one-hour Webinar, internationalization and localization expert Yves Savourel provides a general overview of the current Framework which includes the system of filters the Okapi Framework provides, as well as the concept of the pipeline and the plug-in steps.
