India-based LinguaNext Technologies announced today that its language platform tool, Linguify.S, is now an SAP-endorsed business solution for all countries worldwide.
According to its media statement, SAP will continue to develop localised versions for selected on-premise or cloud solutions, while LinguaNext will offer complementary solutions for product and language combinations not covered by SAP.
Linguify.S makes no changes or modifications to the underlying SAP software or application databases. Instead, language conversion is handled externally at the display level, with all screen output translated in real time using a customised in-memory dictionary. This allows customers to run a single language instance of an SAP application across multiple regions, with users in each country selecting their preferred display language from a drop-down menu.
Solutions endorsed by SAP SE are complementary to SAP software offerings, have been specifically integrated with SAP solutions and tested by SAP, and provide additional choices and flexibility for businesses running SAP software.
"Companies are increasingly realising the benefits of providing their staff, their partners and customers in each country with business applications in their native language," said LinguaNext CEO and co-founder Jagdish Sahasrabudhe. "Surveys clearly show that employee productivity and customer engagement levels are much higher when user interfaces and e-commerce platforms are provided in the local language of the country."
"The LinguaNext solution dramatically reduces the cost, complexity, deployment and time to market of local language enablement of business applications. We are delighted to have received this global endorsement from SAP, the world's leading provider of enterprise application software," he added.
