Language translation software and service provider, Globalink Inc has struck a deal with Netscape Communications Corp to install its multilingual translation tools into Netscape’s Communicator Internet suite of tools. The Globalink Web Translator enables Internet users to translate sites shown in English, into Spanish, French, German, Italian or Portuguese, or the otherway round. The software is based on sophisticated algorithms, which the company claims do intelligent translations based on full sentences rather than just individual words. The packages come with specialized dictionaries for vertical markets such as telecommunications or medical markets, and can also be customized. The software is said to be easy to operate, with translation taking place when the user clicks the Globalink Web Translator button in the Netscape browser. Solutions Internet Technologic Inc of Quebec, Canada, has the rights to distribute the product across the world, outside of the US. The product, which also operates on Microsoft Corp’s Explorer, enables users to translate the 90% of Web content that appears in English, according to Fairfax, Virginia- based Globalink. It believes the translation market is worth around $10bn – $15bn a year, and estimates it’s growing at an annual rate of 25%. The company claims an 80% market share.
