Alchemy Teams Up with Acrolinx to Deliver Natural Language Quality Checks that Improve Localized Software
Dublin, Ireland & Denver, Colorado, USA, November 5, 2013 – Alchemy Software Development, a division of TransPerfect, today announced that it has integrated Acrolinx’s content optimization technology within its flagship localization solution, Alchemy CATALYST.
The combination embeds Acrolinx’s advanced linguistic analytics within Alchemy’s leading software localization solution. As reviewers examine user-interface and user-experience content in CATALYST, Acrolinx alerts them to inconsistent terminology and overly complicated language, and offers recommendations for improvement. By guiding improvements in the source language, this new technology simplifies the translation process and results in higher-quality content in ALL languages.
Designed to improve readability and brand compliance, Acrolinx is the perfect companion product for CATALYST users. “It is an exciting partnership, as CATALYST’s leadership in user-interface and user-experience content is complemented by Acrolinx’s ability to lower costs and improve quality,” said Enda McDonnell, Founder and Chief Architect at Alchemy. “Acrolinx does so by reducing word count, simplifying sentence structure, and standardizing terminology.”
“Acrolinx plugs into a wide variety of authoring environments such as Microsoft Word and Adobe InDesign,” said PG Bartlett, SVP Product Management at Acrolinx. “We are proud of this relationship with Alchemy, as CATALYST brings our quality focus to new users in the software development community.”
The integration of Acrolinx into CATALYST has already been implemented with prominent Alchemy customers and is now available from Alchemy to all CATALYST customers.
