LATICORP ACKNOWLEDGES THAT AMERICANS DO NOT SPEAK ENGLISH

By CBR Staff Writer

Laticorp is making a bid to enter the European market by providing translated versions of its Unix software including ‘British English’ versions. Laticorp, of San Francisco, California is initially targetting the British, French and German markets. The first product to be translated is HTBG, Laticorp’s business graphics product. In September Latitude, an integrated word processor and spreadsheet package, will be available in all three languages as will Sync, electronic mail, in British English. French and German versions of Sync will be available in December. Laticorp says that this part of its plans to conform to the X/Open guidelines with reference to the internationalisation standards and adds that every future Laticorp product will automatically be available in major European languages and on European Unix hardware shortly after its US release.
