Welocalize Develops COTI Compliant Connector for GlobalSight
Frederick, Maryland – November 11, 2014 – Welocalize, global leader in innovative translation and localization solutions, has developed a COTI connector for GlobalSight, Welocalize’s proprietary open-source translation management system (TMS). This connector is the first Level Three COTI Connector to be developed by a language service provider (LSP).
COTI is the Common Translation Interface standard established by DERCOM, the Association of German Manufacturers of Authoring and Content Management Systems. The COTI standard has three levels of functionality, with level three having the highest degree of integration utilizing full automation and connectivity. This new connector now makes it possible for GlobalSight users to connect all COTI compliant content management systems (CMS) to provide a seamless, integrated translation workflow.
“The Level Three COTI Connector developed by Welocalize means no expensive, time-consuming custom development is required and clients now have an out-of-the-box connector which will increase the speed of their workflow and remove any manual friction between the TMS and CMS,” said Derek Coffey, senior vice president of technology development at Welocalize.
Welocalize’s Derek Coffey launched the COTI connector in a tools presentation today at tekom and tcworld conference 2014, “GlobalSight Translation Management System Supports COTI to Enable CMS.” He provided insights into how the new COTI connector developed for GlobalSight will benefit those involved in the technical communications industry.
