Third-party Applications Arrive on SDL OpenExchange

SDL has announced the full launch of the SDL OpenExchange program. SDL OpenExchange is the web portal for developing, marketing and selling applications and plug-ins that leverage the open architecture of SDL products. Over 100 developers have already signed up to SDL OpenExchange.

Developers that sign up to the program are now able to enhance the functionality of SDL Trados Studio 2009 and SDL MultiTerm 2009 by using software development kits available on SDL OpenExchange. They can build applications, custom filters, extra automation or unique customizations that can be promoted and shared through the new SDL OpenExchange website. SDL is also committing to deliver free applications with several new applications being made available in this launch. SDL's thriving user community can immediately participate by suggesting the applications to be developed in the future as well as using and reviewing the existing ones.

One of the first 3rd party applications on SDL OpenExchange is the MyMemory plug-in for SDL Trados Studio 2009, by RIGI Localization Solutions and Translated. The free plug-in enables SDL users to connect directly to the MyMemory translation memory, a linguistic search engine.

Developers that have already signed up to develop new applications or plug-ins for SDL OpenExchange include existing SDL users, language service providers, SDL technology partners, technology-savvy freelance translators, academic institutions and large software companies from outside the localization industry.
