“The next phase in translation technology development will be all about interoperability,” explains Derek Coffey, Vice President of Technology & Professional Services at Welocalize. “The entire supply chain has become frustrated with the reality of operating in technology silos where applications that share a common purpose don’t facilitate the seamless transition of content from one system to another. GlobalSight Editions and our expanded web services functionality demonstrate a first step towards a vision of independent technologies that connect with each other to remove the friction from our supply chain.”

For more information Welocalize will host a GlobalSight demo on Monday, September 27, 2010 at Noon ET. The free webinar will walk through basic features and functionality, outline integration points with GlobalSight and provide installation and configuration training.
