About this blog

Translator's Shack is a collection of links, news, reviews and opinions about translation technologies. It's edited and updated by Roberto Savelli, an English to Italian translator, project manager and company owner of Albatros Soluzioni Linguistiche, a team of English-Italian translators, which hosts and supports this blog.

The Life as a PM category, managed by Gabriella Ascari, contains topics that are less technical in nature, but which we're sure will be appreciated by owners of small translation businesses and freelancers.

Here are links to my pages on some social networks:

Alchemy launches PUBLISHER 2.0

Yesterday Alchemy announced PUBLISHER 2.0, its advanced translation memory solution. The product contains three modules:

  • Analysis Expert: allows to re-use previously translated content by analyzing different types of translation memory formats (Catalyst TTK; Wordfast, SDL Trados, SDL TM Server, SDL Idiom TM, and TMX)
  • Translate Expert: matches previously translated content to new content, in order to (guess what?) reduce the number of words being sent to translators
  • Clean Up Expert: creates the localized version of the translated content and updates the translation memories

PUBLISHER 2.0 supports several source formats, among which FrameMaker, Word, XPress, InDesign, several Help authoring systems and Web and “tagged” formats (HTML, XML, PHP, JSP, etc.)

This is one of the major announcements from Alchemy since its acquisition by Translations.com last spring.
