tekom Annual Conference: Across Systems GmbH to Present Preview of Next Update

Karlsbad. At the tekom annual conference 2019, Across Systems GmbH will present a preview of the Blue-tailed Emerald, the next update of the Across Language Server. The tekom fair—one of the largest events in the field of technical communication—will be held at the International Congress Center Stuttgart (ICS) from November 12 to 14. The software developer from Karlsbad will be present with a fair booth (2/B07) in hall C2, where it will showcase its latest features.

Since the introduction of version 7, the Across Language Server has gained a range of new features from changes in the Project Wizard to improved comment functions to a new quality management module. Across will provide a preview of the latest features of the next update, which will be released soon. This update, too, will be accompanied by the v7 colibri and goes by the name "Blue-tailed Emerald".

As in previous years, Across Systems GmbH will enrich the tekom annual conference with a lecture. A lecture entitled "Pixel by Pixel: Localization of Display Texts" will draw attention to the issues associated with the translation of display texts. The lecture, which will also focus on possible solutions, will be held by Christian Weih-Sum, Member of the Management Board of Across Systems GmbH. "Due to text length or pixel count restrictions, many translators consider the translation of display texts to be challenging", says Christian Weih-Sum. "In my lecture, I will describe how these texts can be adapted to a limited display size and the respective layout even during the translation process, highlighting how this can help avoid time-consuming review loops." The lecture will be presented on Tuesday, November 12, at 9:15 a.m. in room K1/K2.

In his tool presentations, Christian Weih-Sum will also address the topics "What Is New in the Across Language Server v7?" (Tuesday and Wednesday) and "Terminology the Easy Way with crossTerm Now" (Wednesday). These presentations will mainly zoom in on the subject areas of translation, localization, and terminology management.

At booth 2/B07, the Across Systems GmbH team will be pleased to provide further details concerning the upcoming update and answer any other questions. Appointments can now be made at
