SDL Passolo 2009 is launched today and introduces revolutionary new indexing technology to the software localization environment

Maidenhead, UK (31 March 2009) - SDL, the leading provider of Global Information Management (GIM) solutions, is pleased to announce the release of SDL Passolo® 2009, the latest version of its visual software localization product, part of the suite of GIM solutions from SDL.

SDL Passolo 2009 is specifically designed with the software localizer in mind. Providing one visual environment for software localization, it enhances the speed, quality and efficiency of the localization process. This latest version is easy-to-use, requires no programming experience, and is the fastest version of SDL Passolo ever thanks to QuickIndex™ technology. It enables software companies to accelerate the delivery of their products to global markets and helps them achieve a simultaneous global release.

This latest version includes features such as:
• QuickIndex technology for glossaries and projects allows you to reuse previously translated content faster and more accurately than ever before
• A complete history of edits to each string and the ability to roll back to previous versions of the translation
• Improved user interface that is customizable to your needs
• Latest file format filters for Microsoft® .NET 3.5, Delphi® 2009, Oracle® 11 databases and enhanced Microsoft WPF, Microsoft Silverlight™ and Java™ support

Key to the ease-of-use of SDL Passolo is the ability to visualize the changes being made to the Graphical User Interface (GUI) in real-time, ensuring that users can see the context of the string that is being translated and visualize how this is affecting dialog boxes, menus and buttons.

The real power of SDL Passolo is its tight integration with the SDL Trados® translation environment and the SDL GIM platform. This ensures maximum leverage of previously translated content through translation memory, centralized terminology use for brand consistency and the ability to plug-in to enterprise-wide solutions such as SDL Translation Memory System®

CODA®, the finance systems specialist, started localising its flagship products, Financials Client Server Edition™ and Financials Browser Edition™ with SDL Passolo four years ago. It has now expanded the use of SDL Passolo to all its financial product translations.

“Having had the chance to see the new features in SDL Passolo 2009, we are looking forward to implementing this new version that will provide on-going continuity to our localization processes,” comments Carmen Andrés Lange, Localization Support Specialist at CODA. “CODA congratulates SDL Passolo on the new SDL Passolo 2009 release and hopes to see continued success for this very popular and respected localization tool.”

“SDL Passolo 2009 includes over ten years of software localization know-how.” said Florian Sachse, Development Architect, SDL Passolo. “We are especially proud of the results of our research into indexing technology for glossaries and projects. QuickIndex technology will provide customers with faster matches and more leverage from their existing linguistic assets, meaning localization projects are delivered quicker and customers will get a faster return on their investment.”
