XChange International announce Speller XT and Hyphenator XT

for QuarkXPress 7 and CopyDesk 3.6 and Universal Binary (November 26, 2006)

DMN Newswire--2006-11-26--XChange International, the source for extended technology worldwide, are pleased to announce the immediate availability of Universal Binary versions of Hyphenator XT and Speller XT for QuarkXPress 7 and QuarkCopyDesk 3.6.

Hyphenator XT was developed to optimise hyphenation of a great number of languages. As a result, QuarkXPress users no longer have to master a language in order to correctly hyphenate it. Hyphenator XT offers support
for over 55 languages.

The *TALO-designed technology examines the historic origin of each syllable and each language module acts like a comparator which possesses an almost human understanding of the target language with its own linguistic pattern. Hyphenator XT inserts hyphens whilst keeping the text flow comprehensible.


Key features include:

? High accuracy (up to 99.95%) and even complex new compound words are
correctly hyphenated
? Extensive algorithm(s) for each language module
? Speed: large quantities of text are hyphenated in split seconds
? 55 available language modules
? Inserts soft hyphens so documents can be exchanged without text reflow
? Solves language specific problems, diaereses, exchange on omission of
letters
? User-definable Central exception folder
? User-definable Personal exception folder for single users
? Automatic hyphenation on opening of a document
? Automatic language detection of multilingual documents (QuarkXPress
Passport)
? Special change of orthography
? Native Unicode support
? New words are also correctly hyphenated

Speller XT offers highly accurate, high-speed spell checking for a vast variety of modern languages, extending from Europe to Malaysia. Speller XT has over 70 available language modules and the XTensions language technology was devised by *TALO, an expert in language tools for the professional publishing industry. In this version, critical errors in grammatical and lexical combinations are being detected by Speller XT's Expression Control.Each Language Collection in Speller XT consists of one or more language lexicon(s), plus central and personal dictionaries.

capitals)
