Karlsbad: With about 4,000 conference participants and visitors, the tekom annual conference 2014 again served as a key industry hub for technical writers, information developers, and marketing managers from industrial, software, and service enterprises. From November 11 to 13, Across Systems GmbH was present at the International Congress Center in Stuttgart, Germany, with a motivated team and numerous highlights. Apart from the current version 6 of the Across Language Server, the visitors to the Across booth were already able to get a first glance of some new features of the successor version of the translation management system.

The lectures and tool presentations at the conference were also well attended and sparked some exciting conversations. For example, Ulrich Haag of Quark Software Inc. and Christian Weih of Across presented the direct integration of translation workflows in the Quark Publishing Platform.

Highlights at the Exhibition Booth

Like last year, the candy bar with its sweet temptations was the scene of informal conversations at the Across booth. The Swabian party was another crowd puller. With beer, pretzels, and music, Across showed that business does not need to be dull and boring. "Every year, the tekom is a very special event for us. It offers unique opportunities for intensive personal interchange with existing and prospective customers and partners. We would like to thank all who visited our exhibition booth, our presentations, and of course our booth party. The tekom premiere in Stuttgart was a full success," comments Niko Henschen, CEO of Across Systems GmbH.

Meetings of the Across Advisory Boards

On the eve of the tekom, the Across Corporate Advisory Board and the LSP Advisory Board held their second meeting this year. A special aspect was the joint discussion with all advisory members, which enabled a deeper understanding of the different perspectives. With their experience and user knowledge, the members of the advisory boards assist Across in the customer-oriented further development of the Across Language Server.
