Enfocus Software announces the availability of Instant PDF 3.0 in five major languages.

Following Instant PDF 3.0's successful launch of the English version in October 2004, full language versions of French, Italian, Spanish and German are available at a shipping price of 199 euro.
The addition of the new language versions will extend the technology's functionality and popularity to an ever-growing group of users. This version also includes technology improvements and is therefore a recommended free update for existing Instant PDF 3.0 users. The multi-language versions address a pent-up demand in the international design community for effortless creation of error-free PDF documents that match printers and publishers preferred workflow specifications. Put in simple terms, Instant PDF 3.0:
1. Controls the entire PDF creation process
4. Delivers the file to its final destination according to the settings defined in the Enfocus PDF Queue
The Enfocus PDF Queue is a powerful feature within Instant PDF 3.0, which is integrated with CertifiedPDF.net, enabling receivers to efficiently communicate their preferred quality specifications to their creative partners and customers.
Patrick Van Dam, Executive Vice President Worldwide Sales & Marketing from Enfocus states: ?International users have been actively seeking an easy and effective solution for creating and managing the PDF workflow process. Instant PDF 3.0 gives them powerful tools to set up Enfocus PDF Queues in which they can embed their knowledge about PDFs and workflow. The integration with CertifiedPDF.net makes it trivial for receivers to communicate those quality specifications to their customers. If a specification changes, those changes are effortlessly distributed to the customers using those specifications."
With a copy of Instant PDF 3.0 on their Mac or PC, designers can easily download printers PDF specifications expressed by the Enfocus PDF Queue -- to transparently guide the entire PDF creation and preflight process from the point of design and throughout the entire PDF workflow, through to prepress and output. Enfocus PDF Queues published on CertifiedPDF.net by printers, publishers, industry associations, and Enfocus can be directly imported from within Instant PDF. The built-in synchronization feature with CertifiedPDF.net guarantees that imported PDF Queues remain up-to-date, ensuring ongoing consistency with workflow partners. Once imported, PDF Queues become accessible through the ?Save as Certified PDF file menu option in leading page layout and PDF applications such as Adobe InDesign, QuarkXPress, and Adobe Acrobat, and through the PDF Services feature in the Mac OSX print panel. Creative professionals remain productive in their familiar environment without having to worry about print styles, PDF export and other PDF creation settings. The bottom line is that designers are free to design without agonizing over the technical aspects of PDF file creation.
One of the early adopters of Instant PDF 3.0, Jon Bessant of Certitec - the UK PDF training consultancy, concurs: "Instant PDF 3.0 re-writes the rule-book on how a PDF tool should perform. Instant PDF creates total-lockdown of the parameters which can influence the quality of a PDF - practically guaranteeing a flawless, high quality PDF file. It's so simple just import an Instant PDF queue and start generating great PDFs time after time. It's good to see the second generation of PDF tools coming to the marketplace, and the new language versions further expand the usage of this versatile technology." Instant PDF 3.0 is available stand-alone for 199 EURO, and in volume licenses starting at 5 or more users.
