acrolinx and Lingoport Join Forces and Present Live Webinar on Writing and Documenting Software for the World With Agile Demands

Free Online Presentation Features Special Guest Mike McKenna, Globalization Manager at Yahoo! and Focuses on Internationalizing and Documenting Code in an Agile Environment

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - September 1, 2010) -  acrolinx GmbH, the world's leading provider of Information Quality Management software, and Lingoport, a leading provider of software internationalization tools and software localization and internationalization consulting services, announced today that the two companies will present a live Webinar, Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010, titled "Writing and Documenting Software for the World with Agile Demands."

Entering new global markets can be highly rewarding, yet companies are often faced with cutting costs and rapidly deploying high quality products. In order to succeed in today's challenging business environment, global companies need to embrace more efficient content authoring processes and often look for tools to assist in this process.

Adam Asnes, Lingoport President and CEO, notes, "Software companies frequently realize more than 50% of their sales revenue from markets outside of their home market. Yet the process of engineering and localizing software releases often remains a 'tail end' process, with all kinds of clean up, delays and costs." He continues: "When combined with an agile cycle of rapid releases, companies often face the challenge of keeping code internationalized and well documented."

Tony Ehrens, VP of Solutions at acrolinx, adds, "By streamlining content development at the beginning of the production lifecycle agile companies can release product documentation in multiple languages for less cost."

As part of this Webinar, software authoring, internationalization, and globalization experts Kent Taylor of acrolinx, Adam Asnes of Lingoport, and Mike McKenna of Yahoo! will share their views and discuss a variety of best practices, including:

  • Decreasing production time for documentation with reuse
  • Decreasing translation costs by decreasing the amount of documentation
  • Integrating internationalization into the software and content development cycle

This educational online presentation will be held between 10:00am and 11:00am PDT on Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010. To register for the event, visit or and complete the registration form provided.
