Welocalize, a leader of integrated translation services and products, announced today the latest release of GlobalSight 8.5, their open-source translation management system. The updated version features integration of the offline editor OmegaT, a free translation memory application for professional translators.
“I am glad translators can now work seamlessly in a complete open source environment,” said Didier Briel, development manager of OmegaT. “Thanks to our collaboration, the OmegaT 3.0 enhanced features should fit nicely with GlobalSight.”
Welocalize’s GlobalSight 8.5 new release also includes multiple enhancements and improvement for reporting, exporting in addition to flexible configuration options for machine translation (MT) users. Users now have a simple way to select which MT engine to use for each language depending on the requirements.

“The integration of Welocalize’s GlobalSight with OmegaT provides a strong, fully compatible editor that translators can use when working with GlobalSight translation kits,” said Genara Rodriguez, applications deployment manager at Welocalize. “OmegaT is an editor with the same core values as GlobalSight. It is open-source, easy to use and constantly evolving and improving.”
