IXIASOFT Announces Strategic Partnership With XML-INTL to Streamline Global Content Delivery

IXIASOFT partners with XML-INTL to optimize DITA localization process and offer DITA CMS customers access to a new translation management module

MONTREAL, CANADA--(Marketwire - Nov. 18, 2009) - IXIASOFT, the XML content management market leader, announced a strategic technology partnership with XML-INTL, a leader in XML-based translation technology. By integrating the IXIASOFT DITA CMS with the XML-INTL XTM Suite, IXIASOFT customers will benefit from a fully integrated translation management suite which will further enhance their control over the localization process.

The DITA CMS is a content management system aimed at technical communicators for the efficient authoring, management and publishing of DITA-based technical documentation. XML-INTL is the developer of the XMT Suite, a leading translation set of tools. The tight integration between the two offerings will allow users to seamless move their content from the CMS to the translation management tools and always have access to updated localized content. As a result, organizations will be able to maximize their reuse strategy and continue to drive down localization costs.

Organizations are feeling the pressures of globalization and one of their main challenges is to produce localized product documentation that is consistent, on-time and on-budget. Combined to the DITA CMS system, the XTM Suite will facilitate this process, resulting in direct cost savings and shorter localization cycles.

"We are excited about our partnership with XML-INTL and feel that this new translation module is a natural extension of the DITA CMS. We strongly believe that their cutting-edge translation management technology - namely the translation memory and the terminology management tools - will appeal to many of our customers who wish to streamline their localization process." said Eric Bergeron, President of IXIASOFT."

"We are proud to be working with IXIASOFT and are pleased that they trusted our technology for their customers. Managing localized content directly from within the DITA CMS makes perfect sense as it improves content reuse and ensures an efficient delivery of translated content" said Elliot Nedas, Business Development Manager, at XML-INTL."


IXIASOFT is a leading provider of XML content management software to organizations worldwide. IXIASOFT is the developer of TEXTML Server, a native XML database and search engine used to store, index and retrieve large volumes of XML content. IXIASOFT also offers the DITA CMS, a content management solution designed specifically to author, manage, review, localize and publish DITA-based technical documentation. IXIASOFT enjoys a global customer base in various vertical industries including newspaper & publishing, technical documentation, software/hardware manufacturers and libraries & education.
