Accenture will use SDLWebFlow from SDL International to show off the power of Website globalisation to users of its Business Launch Centres. With version 2.5 due at the end of January, SDLWebFlow will integrate with InterwovenTeamsite, MediaSurface3, and VignetteV/5 Content Management Server out of the box. As human translation is very expensive, SDLWebFlow seeks translation productivity, providing a translator workflow system integrated with a Website co-ordination system that keeps regional satellite systems synchronised with a master site. Meanwhile, SDLX provides a translation memory service, suggesting translations to human translators based upon records of past translations. SDLX therefore forms a natural part of the SDLWebFlow suite, although it can be used stand-alone as a translator's workbench. Released in 4Q00, SDLX version 3.5 contains a series of performance enhancements to ensure that expensive translators are kept fully occupied.
