Astoria Software, a division of TransPerfect, today announced a strategic partnership with Acrolinx to embed Acrolinx’s content optimization software into the Astoria Component Content Management solution. The two companies have also established a one-stop business relationship to give clients of the Astoria Component Content Management solution a single point of contact for using the products and services of both companies.
Driving Content Quality Throughout the Content Creation Business Process
The combination of Astoria and Acrolinx joins together the world’s first SaaS platform for building, managing, and publishing XML content across the enterprise with the world’s most advanced platform for ensuring content quality. Acrolinx now analyzes Astoria clients’ content for spelling, grammar, style, terminology, reuse, search-engine optimization, and simplified English. Acrolinx calculates a quality score for content components that reside in Astoria servers, and that score may be applied during a workflow to automate and unclog bottlenecks in the typical copy-editing operation. The results are significant:
- Localization savings of 10 percent to 25 percent by reducing word count, simplifying sentence structure, and standardizing terminology
- Editing efficiency improvements of 50 percent to 75 percent by automating checks in seven critical areas, including style, spelling, and grammar
Also, Acrolinx’s unique ability to conduct linguistic checking in six languages (English, German, Japanese, French, Swedish, and Chinese) and terminology checking in 18 languages enables Astoria clients to ensure content quality in both pre-translated and post-translated material.
The business benefits are straightforward: Astoria Software’s clients operate in global markets, and the ability to move into new markets quickly is a significant advantage. The Acrolinx technology enhances content quality throughout a customer’s business processes because it works on English and non-English content. Hence, Astoria clients are able to move into new markets with higher quality content in new languages more quickly than their competitors.
“The Astoria Software-Acrolinx strategic partnership gives our clients first-mover advantages in new markets, which enables them to realize higher revenues than their competitors,” said Michael Rosinski, president and CEO of Astoria Software. “We already had several clients in common with Acrolinx, so there was strong incentive to craft a strategy that incorporates both companies and systems. Our clients and prospects will be ultimate beneficiaries of this alignment, and that’s good business for everyone.”
Andrew Bredenkamp, founder and president of Acrolinx, said, “Acrolinx has been a pioneering force in the digital content industry, and we recognize in Astoria Software a similar spirit of innovation. We are pleased to have a strategic partnership with a company that is widely recognized for its expertise in XML content management.”

Take the Long View with Digital Transformation By @IoT2040 | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #API #Microservices #InternetOfThings
Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
