Gatineau, Québec, Canada, April 16, 2007 – MultiCorpora, a leading provider of language and text mining technology solutions, announced today that the City of Ottawa has selected MultiCorpora’s MultiTrans 4 Suite, an integrated Translation Memory and Terminology Management System, as the cornerstone of their initiative to efficiently and proactively manage their growing translation environment.
The City of Ottawa selected MultiCorpora after a comprehensive review of cutting edge Translation and Terminology software solutions, followed by an open competition Request for Proposal process which was designed to identify “overall the best value solution” available to the City today and well into the future.
It is expected that the implementation of the MultiTrans products and services, which form the basis of this new multi-year agreement, will begin in Q2 of this year.
The solution proposed to the City of Ottawa, leverages the advanced features and functionality of the MultiTrans 4 suite, including a combination of MultiTrans client/server and web based technology, and is supported through a comprehensive implementation plan which combines project management, installation support, training, process and change management consulting, as well as ongoing product maintenance and support.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to implement our solution and services at the City of Ottawa. Our customers around the world are reporting some great benefits in terms of productivity, consistency and quality by reusing “in-context”, previously translated content. Being selected by the Capital City of Canada is a very important victory for MultiCorpora. The City of Ottawa’s leadership should encourage other Canadian organizations that until now have been hesitant to implement language management tools“, commented Pierre Blais, President and CEO of MultiCorpora.
