Abstract



In Brief . . .

IBM TranslationManager Version 2 is the world's leading translation product. You only need this one tool to translate your documents into the most frequently used languages. Version 2 of TranslationManager delivers the following:

----------------------------------------

With companies doing more and more business worldwide, there is an increased demand for translation tools that streamline the translation process.

IBM TranslationManager, the world's leading translation product, can help to reduce the tremendous costs associated with translating documents and program-integrated information (localization). It uses a memory-based translation technology that allows you to reuse stored translations. In addition, TranslationManager lets you easily translate repetitive texts (for example, new versions or updates to manuals) by reducing your translation time to the new and changed text only.

TranslationManager provides a comprehensive system of translation, text processing and dictionary aids tailored to the needs of professional translators -- it is not a machine (automatic) translation system. TranslationManager also helps to reduce the time and effort associated with producing dictionaries, glossaries, and program-integrated information in multilingual environments.

Technical Information

TranslationManager runs on OS/2(R) Version 2.11 and OS/2 Warp Version 3, Microsoft Windows+ 3.1 and 3.11, and Microsoft Windows 95. To install TranslationManager Version 2, you need a personal computer with at least a 386 processor, 8MB RAM and 25MB hard disk space.

Upgrade Paths

IBM TranslationManager Version 2 offers an upgrade option from IBM TranslationManager/2 Version 1, TranslationManager for Windows Version 1, and Personal TranslationManager for translation memories and dictionaries.

Language Support diskettes ordered with Version 1 are not compatible.



Language Support

The diskette versions of the program package include English, German, French, Italian, and Spanish language support. For additional languages, a separate Language Support Diskette has to be ordered:
