Lotus Development Corp is launching its first non-Notes/Domino groupware product and adding translation facilities to its Domino Client. The new groupware software, called QuickPlace, allows users to set up multi-user ‘spaces’ for discussion groups and collaborations on documents and projects using a standard browser; although the product can also use the Notes client software. The product has been designed to allow users to set up their own web spaces. America Online Inc will work with Lotus to produce a version of the software for AOL members. QuickPlace will be made available both as a standalone server, bundled with Lotus Domino R5 Enterprise and Applications servers, and as a hosted service. The standalone Lotus QuickPlace server and the Domino bundle are expected in the first quarter. The standalone QuickPlace server will cost $995 – although users will need to purchase a Notes client license. Meanwhile, Lernout & Hauspie Speech Products NV and Lotus have announced plans to integrate its iTranslator machine translation (CI No 3,504) software with Domino. iTranslator is a web-based system that will search, summarize and translate web pages and online documents. The system is based on machine translation technology that supports 15 language pairs such as French, German, Spanish and Chinese. The firms say the software will be used to translate emails, foreign language web sites. There is no word on when – or if – the integration work will be completed.
