Helsinki, Finland, July 15, 2003 -- Multilizer, Inc., a developer of globalization technologies, and XTRA Translation Services, German localization service provider, have announced a strategic partnership and signed a VAR agreement on delivering Multilizer technology to the German market.
"Germany is already one of Multilizer's top markets and with this partnership we hope to give better support for Multilizer's current customers and also to reach new ones" says Mr. Jari Sarras, VP of Sales at Multilizer. "This partnership will strengthen Multilizer's position not only among IT companies, but also among other industries. XTRA is capable of delivering the whole globalization solution, including consultation, localization technology and translation of both UI and documentation to the end-users, and that is exactly what they are looking for," Sarras continues.
"For 10 years now, XTRA has been providing best-of-class localization 'solutions' to multinational IT and software companies. Combining in-depth linguistic and engineering expertise with open technology applied to solve customer problems has always been and will continue to be our single focus," says Stefan Lampert, CEO of XTRA. "Our partnership with Multilizer marks a milestone in our company's history in that we are now able to help software developers improve their end of the localization process by implementing a vendor-independent localization technology that automates most engineering and quality assurance tasks."
To meet software developing companies' growing needs better, Multilizer has developed a partner program, through which companies can become Multilizer Value-Added Resellers. The Partner Program enables, for example, consulting companies and localization providers to fulfil the globalization needs of their corporate customers. Multilizer's wide range of offerings gives software vendors a universal platform to deliver multiple language versions. The vendors' process automation makes the production of multilingual software an integral part of the development life cycle.
