Alfresco Dines Out French, German, Spanish, Italian, and Japanese Style

Alfresco Software, provider of the open platform for social content management, has this week announced the availability of a range of new user interface language packs in Alfresco Community 3.4.

The language packs, available in French, German, European Spanish, Italian, and Japanese, are the first to have been developed by Alfresco with support from a leading localization vendor.

Suggesting that this development comes in response to a growing world-wide user base, Alfresco says that more than half of its customers are based in non-English speaking countries, with its largest base of partners, customers and community members located in France, Germany, Spain, Italy and Japan — hence the new language packs.

The company says that the localization process ensures Alfresco’s localized products will perform as if it was originally created for use in the intended country. Professional localization teams will help improve consistency of the language and terms used and will greatly enhance acceptance by end users.

The first language packs are available now in the Alfresco Community download and will be incorporated into the Alfresco Enterprise 3.4 release early in 2011.
