ILE exploits new tools
Sep 20, 1995
International Language Engineering has upgraded its proprietary localization tools. ILE's new translation memory engine uses a unique fuzzy matching technology for leveraging previous translations of software, help and documentation. The system compensates for spelling and typing errors, morphological variants and case differences. A patent application has been filed. Unlike other TM products, ILE's TM is also completely language independent, allowing use with Chinese, Thai, Japanese or any other language. ILE's localization clients now have the benefit of powerful leveraging tools which can provide significant cost and schedule savings during upgrades.
ILE, which is ISO 9001 certified, has been providing software localization services since 1984. It offers full localization for over 22 languages, specializing in multiple-language projects.

ILE releases version 1.0 of OpenTag format
Feb 20, 1998
International Language Engineering Corporation released version 1.0 of the OpenTag format. The OpenTag format is a standard markup format for extracted text. This open standard provides a method to generically encode text that has been extracted from an original file or document. Original documents, which can be in any format (RTF, SGML, MIF, HTML, software resources, Interleaf, etc.), are parsed to generate files whose contents are marked up identically regardless of the source format. These data files then can serve as a common-format I/O for virtually all text processing operations. Unicode support ensures access to the necessary characters for the world's languages. To help developers implement support for the OpenTag format, ILE has released the OpenTag Development Kit. This free ODK environment includes a set of specifications, tools, source code samples and various resources to help programmers develop OpenTag filters as well as applications using OpenTag filters.
