Alchemy PUBLISHER is the Next Generation Translation Memory Solution for
Documentation in Virtually Any Format

DUBLIN, July 16, 2008 – Alchemy Software Development, a world leader in visual localization solutions, today announced the release of Alchemy PUBLISHER 2.0; the next generation of the world’s most popular visual localization technology that provides advanced translation memory (TM) for documentation.

Alchemy PUBLISHER supports all aspects of the localization workflow, from translation, engineering, and testing to project management. The benefits of using Alchemy PUBLISHER include:

  • Double the Savings of Traditional TM Solutions: Employing Alchemy’s next generation, object-oriented translation memory technology, Alchemy PUBLISHER ensures that users never translate the same sentence twice and that the TM for that sentence can be re-used as often as needed. This improves productivity and results in significant translation savings. Additionally, since Alchemy’s TM technology recalls and re-applies layout and formatting information, desktop publishing costs can also be reduced. Depending on the quality of existing translation memories, clients may attain savings of 50–60%.

  • Higher Quality Translation: Alchemy PUBLISHER preserves the complex information stored in FrameMaker, InDesign, and QuarkXPress documents, while presenting text for translation in highly visual and contextually rich editing environments. This feature enables linguists to focus on the accuracy and precision of their translations, as well as helping organizations improve the quality of their global content and better control their brand voice.

  • Rapid Return On Investment: Organizations that deploy Alchemy PUBLISHER within their localization workflow will enjoy savings on direct translation costs, as well as productivity gains in desktop publishing and testing. Combined with faster release times to international markets, these benefits ensure rapid ROI.

“Alchemy Software Development has been committed to providing innovative TM solutions for software applications and web content since its inception," said Tony O’Dowd, President of Alchemy Software Development. “We’ve taken our experience as a market leader in visual localization and focused on solving the challenges inherent in translating documents. This new advancement makes it easier for our clients to localize technical publications, reducing their translation costs and accelerating their entry into new overseas markets.”

"Alchemy PUBLISHER is the next generation in translation memory for documentation," said Phil Shawe, President and CEO of, Alchemy's parent company. "It offers a fresh approach by allowing customers to localize within a visual environment. Having the ability to see words in context results in faster and higher quality translations."

Alchemy PUBLISHER 2.0 supports all the industry standard documentation formats, such as Adobe FrameMaker, Adobe InDesign, QuarkXPress, MS Word, XML, SGML, RTF, and DOCX. It also supports many application platforms such as Windows 16/22/64x binaries, MS .NET 1.0–3.0, JAVA, and web-content formats such as HTML, XHTML, ASP, ASP+, and all derivative content formats.

Alchemy PUBLISHER works with virtually every translation memory format so that clients migrating to this next generation TM technology can re-use past translation investments. The tool also provides a machine translation adaptor.
