New Version of TransPerfect’s Visual Localization Software Adds Key Features
DUBLIN and NEW YORK, October 31, 2023 – Alchemy Software Development, the world leader in visual localization solutions and a division of TransPerfect, marks its 21st anniversary with the release of Alchemy Catalyst 2023, the latest iteration of its enterprise localization solution. Already recognized for its pioneering support of leading software formats, Alchemy Catalyst 2023 includes new features that further streamline the software localization process.
Alchemy Software Development’s Catalyst platform is the translation solution of choice for multinational organizations looking to automate their localization for foreign markets. Visual reporting tools help to identify risks throughout the localization process, while advanced translation memory technology increases overall translation accuracy and further reduces implementation costs and turnaround times.
Alchemy Catalyst 2023 includes the following new features:
Support for Dot Net 5+:
Users are now able to localize binaries and .resx files written in the latest .NET versions from .NET 5 onward (currently .NET 5, .NET 6, .NET 7).
Native support for markdown files:
Markdown files (.md, .markdown) are now parsed natively and rendered as html for fully visual localization.
Filter navigator by resource status:
A feature request from our user base, this allows users to filter files by status at the navigator level (e.g., showing only files containing untranslated segments, or only files containing fuzzy segments, or only files containing memos, etc.).
Enhancement of segmentation engine:
Automatic segmentation has been extended to String Tables inside Win32 and .NET binaries, as well as database files (DDF). This allows automatic segmentation of html/xml content embedded in those resources. Segmentation can also be manually tweaked post-parsing (by further segmenting or joining previously segmented text). Moreover, custom segmentation rules now accept tags as delimiters, for improved accuracy.
"Catalyst 2023 is unique in its sophistication of support for software file formats,” said Mark Hagerty, Chief Technology Officer of TransPerfect. “No other translation tool can be seamlessly integrated into the software build process while also mitigating the challenges faced by developers and engineers tasked with simultaneous shipment of software to world markets.”
