LEDAS Ltd., an independent provider of software components and services on the market of product lifecycle management (PLM) tools, today announced that Dassault Systèmes, through the partnership between LEDAS and Dassault Systèmes Russia Corp., completed localization of DELMIA Process Engineer — the first stage of the project for localizing the DELMIA product line for computer-aided process planning.
«Localization of software products is mandatory for operating on the Russian PLM market. We understood this when we introduced our main brand — CATIA to the local market, and then localized ENOVIA SmarTeam versions V5R18 и V5R19 in partnership with LEDAS», said Laurent Valroff, the Director of Dassault Systèmes Russia Corp. «The decision to localize the products from DELMIA portfolio was made in 2008 to meet the needs of our customers. Naturally, we again decided in favor of LEDAS because their experts have all necessary competences in organizing manufacturing processes at extended enterprise coupled with high linguistic proficiency. Their professionally developed vertical localization project, which allows reusing translation memory, excellent support and reasonable pricing have made LEDAS our obvious localization partner. The quality, timeliness and efficiency of LEDAS work meet the highest standards of Dassault Systèmes, established at the outset of the project and meticulously observed by LEDAS until completion of the project according to the approved schedule».
The first stage — localizing DELMIA Process Engineer — required compiling the glossary and translating over 70 000 CAD/CAM/CAE/PLM terms and expressions, included in the user interface elements. In coordination with the Russian office of Dassault Systèmes, LEDAS played the key role in managing, executing and delivering the project results. The next stage will be translating the elements of the user interface for other DELMIA modules — in total more than 300 000 words. It is expected that the second stage will be completed by the end of 2008.
Dassault Systèmes DELMIA software suite is the key enabler in a PLM-enabled environment for manufacturing.
