Open source translation management

GlobalSight, an open source translation management system to be introduced by Welocalize, will include support for Clay Tablet 2.0 to enable connectivity to a wide variety of content management systems (CMS) or content repositories. The companies say this approach ensures "out of the box" connectivity to a wide range of content management systems and integration possibilities with most others.

GlobalSight is described as a collaborative initiative to develop a flexible and sustainable translation management system (TMS) that leverages the best ideas and addresses the true needs of the industry. In this non-captive community, participants are free to discuss, discover and build upon a translation process automation tool that provides choice and flexibility and can be shared by all.

GlobalSight is further claimed to be the first open source TMS that provides a scalable translation management platform for companies to manage, translate and deliver global content. Current development efforts have focused on transitioning the product to open source by replacing several third-party software components with open source equivalents.
