SDL Confirms Commitment to Language Service Providers with Launch of www.LSPzone.com

SDL plc

Monday, 27 March, 2006

Maidenhead, UK 27th March 2006 SDL International, a leader in the emerging market for global information management (GIM) solutions, announced today the launch of the highly anticipated www.LSPzone.com portal, designed specifically for the Language Service Provider (LSP) market. Keeping with the core promise from the acquisition of TRADOS, SDL has designed www.LSPzone.com to better support and serve the LSP community with resources to help them grow their business and attract more customers. The new community site allows LSPs to promote their expertise to any customer looking for SDL TRADOS technology-enabled translation partners.

In less than one month, over 450 LSP businesses have already been registered at www.LSPzone.com and directory inquiries are growing exponentially. LSPs can also purchase the latest releases of SDL TRADOS software as well as create online professional profiles, through which they can showcase their skills and demonstrate their industry expertise in using SDL TRADOS Desktop, Server and Translation Management technologies. Feedback from the Language Service Provider community has also been very encouraging.

"As a full service global business solutions company, we use SDL TRADOS technology with our proprietary systems to create integrated solutions for our customers," said Andre Pellet, CEO/President of M2 Enterprises. "This is essential for managing global information and language projects, and to ensure we're connected to the global corporate ecosystem that is using this industry-standard technology. We're happy to see SDL demonstrating its commitment to Language Service Providers like M2 Enterprises by offering a Language Services Directory for potential customers to learn about our services. We see this as an excellent first step of collaboration between SDL and LSPs to provide integrated solutions to the global marketplace."

"SDL has always shown genuine dedication to the Language Service Provider market, but actions speak louder than words," said Keith Laska, Vice President, of SDL TRADOS Desktop Technology. "One of the ways we want to demonstrate our continued commitment to the LSP market is by ensuring that Corporate Language departments and Translators are fully aware of the SDL TRADOS-enabled LSPs with whom they can work. www.LSPZone.com provides this missing link with the LSP Directory Service. The website also explains the breadth of SDL TRADOS solutions, so that LSPs can always choose the appropriate solution for their needs - ensuring they are connected to the global ecosystem with the most proven and industry-tested products available."

To celebrate the launch of www.LSPzone.com, SDL is now offering promotional pricing on its new groundbreaking release SDL Trados 2006, and on Server and Translation Management technology, for all orders placed on or before the 31st of March. LSPs can also register their details directly online to be listed in the LSP Directory.
