today announced the release of PowerGlot 2.0, a new version of its localization software for Mac OS developers.
PowerGlot enables software developers to make products worldwide in the native language of their choice, including support 2-byte languages like Japanese, Chinese and Korean. The software extracts text from applications, helps perform the translations, then build the localized applications.
PowerGlot 2.0 is the first version to support Mac OS X (it works with Mac OS 8 and 9 as well). OS X support includes applications built using Mac OS X’s Cocoa application development environment. PowerGlot offers specific support for Metrowerks CodeWarrior and the PowerPlant framework, as well as Palm OS applications.
Other changes in PowerGlot 2.0 include the addition of a new Work Files mechanism, which helps to automate large projects. AppleScript support is improved in this version, and numerous other changes, improvements and bug fixes have been made as well.
PowerGlot 2.0 is available for US$199, with site and worldwide licenses available for $1,490 and $2,990 respectively. Upgrades are available for existing customers for 40 percent off. A demo version is also available for download.
