Denver, CO, July 3, 2001 ISYS Search Software,
Inc., leading provider of Knowledge Management (KM) software solutions
for the enterprise and Internet/Intranet, announces the availability
of ISYS for over 30 languages. This unites the power of ISYS, ISYS
Development, Inc.s award-winning KM software, with the ability
to search in foreign languages, English or both.
The multilingual search and retrieval technology of
ISYS is an important component of the ISYS suite of KM products designed
to provide the highly tailored solutions that international corporations
require. This particular application is designed to allow users to search
content and obtain results in English or their own language.
This development in the ISYS Search Software directly
addresses the need for international companies to provide access to
information across a variety of languages, says Ian Davies, Managing
Director of ISYS Search Software. This feature is essential for multi-lingual
countries. Many companies tend to deal internationally in French or
English, ISYS multi-lingual search products allows for users to
search in English and their native language at the same time. In an
effort to expand the use of ISYS globally, ISYS Search Software enhanced
the core ISYS engine by providing it with multi-byte character set capability.
Text can encounter in single-byte or multi-byte forms, or increasingly
in Unicode; ISYS deals with documents and web pages in any of these
forms. While Unicode is relatively common in European environments,
most Asian computing is done in multi-byte. Further, for Asian
characters, we also have to be aware of the ideographic and non-ideographic
nature of the words and characters in the various languages, says
Derek Murphy, Senior Software Developer.
ISYS searches most Asian and European languages, including:
French, German, Spanish Portuguese, Italian, Cyrillic Russian, Thai,
Bahasa, Greek, Hebrew, Turkish, Traditional and Simplified Chinese,
Korean, Japanese, and Vietnamese and Arabic.
We are very excited about the availability of
our products for these key markets, said Davies. As a result
of our efforts, customers throughout the world will have access to a
robust multilingual search product.
