Redmond, Washington (PressExposure) April 24, 2009 -- Whether you are a webmaster in charge of globalizing your brand for more effective product promotion, or a translator providing website localization services, the new Excitic Website Localization Tool from Lingobit Technologies is for you. Similar to the flagship Lingobit Localizer software, Excitic extracts localizable resources from the website and prepares them for translation. The editors and translators only interact with an easy to use visual environment for editing the relevant content. This guarantees consistent formatting across multilingual versions of the website and avoids the possibility of accidentally altering code.
"We expect this tool will help people take advantage of today's global economy by making it easier for them to localize their websites more efficiently and cost effectively" said Samuel Moore, CEO of Lingobit Technologies.
Excitic supports an extensive range of file formats such as HTML, ASP, ASP.NET, PHP, Java, Perl, MySQL and Oracle, and therefore lets you translate simple HTML websites, complex database-driven websites, and web applications. It also includes a collection of features aimed at minimizing the cost of translation. Automatic Translation Memory with Terminology uses previously translated words for new projects. With the import/export functionality of TMX and CVS formats, information can be exchanged easily with other translation tools. If there is an updated version of the master website, Scan for Changes feature isolates the new and updated material for translation and therefore, reduces the amount of translation required. Once the changes have been translated, Excitic will seamlessly merge the changes with previously translated versions.
The localization process is easily managed with an Exchange Wizard for easy collaboration between managers and translators and a free translator version can be distributed to translators and proofreaders without additional licensing fees. The progress and cost of the project can be estimated and tracked with project reports, status and statistics tools. All these features are packaged in an easy to use visual interface for immediate productivity, making Excitic a valuable tool for any website localization project.
