ENLASO (translate.com) Announces New Consulting & Training Solutions Division Thursday November 2, 8:03 am ET BOULDER, CO--(MARKET WIRE)--Nov 2, 2006 -- ENLASO (translate.com), a leading provider of enterprise language solutions, today announced the creation of a Consulting and Training Solutions Division. Services from the new division will range from XML consulting, localization engineering consulting, documentation conversion to FrameMaker, and optimization and training in several disciplines. ENLASO has promoted Maxwell Hoffmann to Manager of Consulting and Training Solutions. "Max has amassed an amazing amount of technical expertise specific to localization in publishing and content structure during his nine years here," states Yves Lang, ENLASO's Vice President, Sales & Marketing and CSO. "Now he can share his 20+ years of tech pubs expertise with a broader audience and exceed customer needs by leveraging the talent of several industry veterans we have on staff." "Our goal is to make our customers as self-sufficient as possible, so they can submit optimal content for localization and avoid any unnecessary costs," adds John Watkins, ENLASO President and COO. "This division combines best-of-breed XML, publishing, engineering consulting and training to help customers reap optimal results in localization." "We have quietly provided these services for years to customers on a 'demand' basis," says Maxwell Hoffmann. "Over time, our engineers have developed many impressive solutions that need to reach a broader audience." Past projects range from unique FrameMaker plug-ins that automate publishing multi-lingual projects to processes for migrating 500-plus page catalogs from PageMaker to FrameMaker. Consulting services also include XML consulting by Yves Savourel, ENLASO's Localization Solutions Architect and author of "XML Internationalization and Localization." Script automation and FrameMaker plug-in development is provided by Localization/Development Engineer Doug Pearson. Localization engineering process consulting is provided by several experienced engineers and uncovers potential obstacles in code development that can impede the localization process. ENLASO customers can benefit from expert advice that ranges from choosing the right character encoding to implementing localization-friendly string storage and delivery systems. Training Services will include paid Web Seminars, the first of which will be "Preparing Legacy Documents for Conversion to FrameMaker." Custom training based on the customer's workload will be provided on a request basis. "Over the years, I have learned that one of the most effective ways to master a solution is to have hands-on training in the context of your own content or data," says Hoffmann, who has trained over 1,500 customers and sales professionals. "Whether the training objective is engineering, project management or publishing, critical core issues specific to localization must be covered to achieve meaningful results," he adds. ENLASO works with all major XML and DTP software solutions, but over 75% of its customers' technical documentation content is created in FrameMaker. As a result of this unusually high FrameMaker expertise, ENLASO has developed a number of unique plug-ins to enhance FrameMaker's capabilities. Plug-in solutions range from localizing a "single source" template for all target languages to automation of generated TOCs and Indices in structured FrameMaker. "Our FrameMaker plug-ins are customer and project specific," states developer Doug Pearson, "and contrast with off-the-shelf solutions in that we customize FrameMaker to match the customer's precise workload. Because we have a large library of existing code, we can modify plug-ins to suit nearly any customer's workload with minimal effort." ENLASO has updated its Web site to describe consulting and training offerings. Information may be obtained at www.translate.com/services/consulting_and_training.html.
