Rouen, Seine-Maritime, France, 2007/04/19 - For the first time, Inttranews™, the leading news site for the language industry, has been included in the scope of the ISO 9001:2000 recertification obtained by HTT, the company that designed and developed the Inttranet™ portal.
Using state-of-the-art search technology combined with language-based rules developed by HTT and in-house translators to edit the results, the bilingual news site publishes one-paragraph excerpts from 24 articles each day. Each report includes an HTML link to the source, thereby respecting publishers' copyright and driving traffic to their sites, and enabling linguists to keep abreast of all the events and issues of interest or concern.
Thanks to the quality and scope of coverage provided by Inttranews™, the wire service is read each month by more than 45,000 linguists in over 90 countries, and has been syndicated by leading interpreters' and translators' institutions and associations around the world. Partners include the International Federation of Translators (FIT) and the International Association for Translation and Intercultural Studies (IATIS), both of which are recognized by UNESCO.
Syndication of lnttranews™ on third-party websites is free of charge, with automatic updates when new articles are published on the parent site. A complete selection of categories of language-related news is available, covering every area and form of interpretation and translation, from fundamental research to applied technology and emerging markets.
After three years of activity, in its searchable on-line archives, lnttranews™ now has some 20,000 reports of keen interest for research and marketing purposes. For business, calls for tender worth more than €350 million were reported on the site in 2006 alone.
HTT (High Technology Translators) is a translation company established in Rouen, France, in 1987. The firm has been an approved supplier of translation services to the European Commission since 1994, and was one of the first companies to obtain ISO 9001:2000 certification in France in 2001.
HTT headed the multinational design team in charge of developing the multilingual Inttranet™ portal for professional interpreters and translators, launched in 2000. Inttranet™ was included in the UNESCO Observatory for the Information Society in 2006. Further services developed by HTT for the portal include the multilingual terminology database Terminall™ (2003), and Inttranews™ (2004).
The latest development by HTT is the Exttranet™, a multilingual, multi-criteria Search and CV system for professional interpreters and translators that can be displayed on any website, computer, or mobile communication system in the appropriate language.
