Well folks, you heard right! After Word 1.0 release, we have been listening and gathering your feedback and comments and have decided to roll out the sequel to Word 1.0. Word 1.1 is slated to be released in fall 2007, along with Excel and PowerPoint translators’ v1 releases, with intermediate CTP updates.

At a high level, Word 1.1 aims to address the following issues:

  • Enhancements to end user usability in terms of:
  1. Installation
  2. Predictable translation
  3. Localization - Additional Languages supported will include Chinese and Japanese with updates to Dutch
  4. Error messages & documentation
  • Fixing all critical defects
  • Performance Improvements

Some major bug fixes would be observed with regards to content loss, formatting, header footer lists and shapes. We are still finalizing the roadmap in terms of intermediate releases, etc for 1.1 and will keep you posted on that front with newer updates. Our Word 1.0 translator team, that includes Cleverage, Aztecsoft and DIaLOGIKa, will be supporting this release as well. We look forward to your support and feedback in ensuring we enhance the translator to meet customer needs.
