San Jose, CA (3 Feb, 2016). In 2005 Author-it Software Corporation released the first integrated collaborative authoring, content management, localization management and multi-lingual publishing platform. Over the intervening decade they have made regular improvements to the Author-it platform, and it is this heritage (that) they have built on with their most recent release.

Localization is the key word for those operating in multiple markets and publishing to many languages. Author-it 6.4 brings further speed improvements to the Localization management process with the latest release of the Author-it Localize user interface.

The Locale Migration Tool (LMT) has been introduced with a goal of better keeping libraries in sync. Author-it streamlined the database structure of the LMT to allow users to migrate to a single library. They state they are looking forward to working with users to more simply and efficiently migrate existing libraries to the new structure.

As many of their users need to document 'User Interfaces' in software or hardware they have added an updated Resource Translator that will allow users to easily use, synchronize and translate user interface strings in their documentation projects.

Also in this release, Author-it included the following:

A new print publishing engine: PDF ProCSS. This update vastly improves the speed of PDF document rendering. Test users have experienced publishing time improvements of approximately 90% for large documents (1000+ pages).

Users had asked for the ability to create new derivative and boilerplate Books from existing Books. Based on this feedback Author-it included this in this version.

In addition Author-it worked on making generating books easier with the inclusion of a new Editor Function, that allows for easier reusing of standard components and automatic duplication.
