Communication Across Languages For Worldwide eBiz Communities

[Hong Kong, March 2001] Languages are also responsible for the information gap in today!|s world besides physical factors. This is especially true for Asian countries, as most Websites are written in English. The biggest problem that lies ahead of these countries is how to benefit themselves and even grab business opportunities from this powerful information resource in unfamiliar languages.

This problem can now be solved by two allied partners, kanhan.com and Worldlingo.com. The two companies, each specializing in server-based languages technologies and Machine Translation (MT), set out to facilitate frictionless online communications across languages. "Worldlingo is a highly specialized translation agency focusing on e-commerce and Internet communications. We offer a broad range translation solutions, which include: professional human translations, such as the localization of websites and software, email translation, website and document machine translation, and translation tools for multilingual browsing. Our machine translation languages cover the top 10 languages on Web today, which accounts for 93.2% of all languages on the web today. Our partner kanhan.com also offers translation between Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese. After the alliance, the two companies will offer a enterprise-level translation solution - HanWEB Intranet Translation Server for business functions, enabling multilingual communications on corporate intranets", said Tanja Hill , Director, Business Development for Worldlingo.

"The intelligent and robust nature of our technology not only guarantees accurate, automatic and real-time gist translation between languages, it also preserves the original formatting to the translated Web pages, while supporting popular Internet standards including, HTML, WML, CSS, Cookies, Javascript, and SSL" said Patrick Tsang, Chief Operating Officer of kanhan.com.

The HanWEB intranet Server offers tremendous convenience and flexibility to employees as it allows employees to access translations when needed, either locally or remotely. It provides on demand multilingual translation upon Web pages, HTML documents, PDF files, Word documents, Excel files, and Powerpoint files. The translated materials are ideal references to employees who are dealing with languages that they are not familiar with. The technology also consists server side applications such as comprehensive Web based multilingual dictionaries and input methods, introducing communication ease in every aspect. Such practices will sharply shrink employees' amount of effort on multilingual communication. To enterprises, HanWEB not only means enhanced business communications, but also acceleration to information research and internal communication, and enrichment to staffs.

The two companies also set to launch a marketing initiative to actively promoting HanWEB to enterprises around the world.
