Softshare, a provider of e-commerce products and services since 1982,
announced that its Web EDI solution, Softshare Athena, now supports
five languages within its interface: English, Spanish, French, Dutch,
and German.
     Users, in addition to establishing preferred languages, are also able
to pair those languages with locales to ensure that times, dates, and
currencies are formatted based on the common practices of a particular
locale or region, the company said.
     "With offices in Amsterdam and resellers around the globe, Softshare
has always tried to cater to its international clients," said Allen
Levy, Director of Sales for Softshare. "Although English is usually
accepted as the international language of e-commerce, we know that our
Athena clients really appreciate being able to conduct EDI operations
in their native languages."
     In addition to directly benefiting end users, Athena's multi-lingual
capabilities are also a benefit to the hub communities that recommend
Softshare's Web EDI solution to its suppliers. As e-commerce
relationships between companies continue to globalize, these hubs are
starting to look for solutions that will accommodate all suppliers,
regardless of geographic location or language, according to the company.
