MadCap Software, a provider of content authoring solutions, has announced the availability of MadPak Multilingual, or “MadPak ML,” a completely integrated product suite that helps global businesses to deliver content in multiple languages.
The company offers the MadCap family of tightly integrated applications for end-to-end content development, delivery and management as well as offers solutions optimized for Microsoft (News - Alert) Vista, Visual Studio, and the .NET environment via its strategic partner, Microsoft Corporation.
With the help of MadPak ML, businesses will be able to create, edit, translate and present content including text, graphics, video and audio, in multiple languages. This provides greater accuracy, efficiency and consistency in publishing print and online content for different audiences across the globe.
The company also announced it has expanded MadPak’s multi-channel authoring functionality with MadCap Lingo, which is a fully integrated translation memory system and authoring solution that eliminates the need for file transfers to complete translation.
In addition, MadCap Lingo features Project Packager, which allows authors to create a MadCap Lingo project with all the files that require translation and these can be performed in a single click then bundled in a .ZIP file and sent to the translator.
All of the company’s products are based on native XML and are built from the ground up to work with each other, in order to provide unique and powerful cross-product, single-sourcing, said company officials.
“Disparate content authoring and translation solutions typically require manual intervention that leads to inconsistencies, errors, and ultimately delays and cost overruns,” said Anthony Olivier, co-founder and CEO of MadCap.
“By automating and integrating authoring and translation, our MadPak ML significantly lowers the cost and complexity of delivering state-of-the-art content that accurately represents the value global businesses bring to their markets.”
