Autodesk Selects Idiom Global Electronic Publishing Solution

Leading Software Design Company Leverages Idiom Technology to Manage, Translate, Localize and Publish Globally

WALTHAM, Mass., May 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Globalization Management Systems (GMS) leader Idiom Technologies, Inc., today announced that Autodesk, the world's leading design software and digital content company, has selected Idiom WorldServer Global Electronic Publishing to manage its product documentation lifecycle, and publish content in a variety of print and electronic formats - in up to 18 different languages, around the globe.

More than six million users in 160 countries use Autodesk solutions to engineer and manufacture products, design and construct buildings, and maintain infrastructure. These technically advanced products include extensive online help and detailed documentation, which must be updated frequently, and made available in up to 18 different languages simultaneously.

Autodesk has selected the Idiom global electronic publishing solution to manage and automate its product documentation lifecycle. By leveraging the WorldServer Global Electronic Publishing integrated XML repository, Autodesk is able to structure content into component files, which can be versioned, previewed, edited, and translated into HTML, PDF, compiled help (CHM) and print formats from a single, unified source. By reusing content, and enforcing global workflow processes, Autodesk enables its authors, reviewers, project managers, and translators to work together, in a "continuous translation" process, which begins as soon as a chapter of content is created. As edits to existing content are made, or new content is added, WorldServer Global Electronic Publishing keeps track of the changes, and leverages Idiom translation technologies to eliminate redundancies, and dramatically shorten translation time.

"We evaluated a number of vendors that provided globalization systems or publishing tools, but Idiom was the only vendor that addressed both needs with a single solution," said Rose Malle-Gianattassio, Director of Worldwide Localization, Autodesk. "We selected WorldServer Global Electronic Publishing because it will automate our workflow, and lead to significant cost savings."

"Our leadership in Globalization Management Systems (GMS) has exposed us to a number of large-scale, enterprise applications of GMS technologies. Bringing tailored solutions like WorldServer Global Electronic Publishing to market was the obvious next step for Idiom," said Idiom president and CEO, Joe Fiorentino. "By providing a set of standards and a unified content management and globalization infrastructure, we enable companies such as Autodesk to turn what was once a lengthy, complex, and expensive process into a strategic advantage."
