Welocalize has been actively supporting interoperability initiatives across the industry such as Interoperability Now and Open TM2. We have also been working on practical implementations of interoperability between products, and we are happy to announce interoperability between Passolo and GlobalSight. The products have been connected through their APIs. GlobalSight uses the Passolo API to import Language Project (LPU) files into GlobalSight as source files for translation and move them through a translation workflow. This allows the user to take advantage of existing TMs, Machine Translation and other GlobalSight features when working with content supplied by Passolo. GlobalSight updates the LPU through Passolo’s API when the translation process completes.
The productivity of our industry’s tools is greatly improved through interoperability, and we are excited to make this step forward.
