ENLASO and SMART Communications to Co-Host Webinar on How to Write Controlled English for Translation: The 1% Solution

BOULDER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 01/18/08 -- ENLASO Corporation, a provider of translation and localization solutions, today announced that it will co-host a live Webinar January 31, 2008, titled "How to Write Controlled English for Translation: The 1% Solution" along with SMART Communications, Inc., the leader in development of Controlled English programs.

Part of ENLASO's educational Webinar series, "How to Write Controlled English for Translation: The 1% Solution" features SMART Communications' President, John M. Smart. This complimentary Webinar is of particular interest to technical writers, translation and localization managers, customer service managers, project managers, globalization teams and global marketing professionals.

The use of Controlled English removes English ambiguity and decreases complex English grammatical structures, like the passive voice and gerunds. The results are unambiguous English texts that are easier to comprehend and translate. The translations use fewer words, resulting in cost savings and better quality translations.

"According to the Oxford Dictionary, the English language has approximately 900,000 words with more words being added daily. While so many words provide a rich vocabulary, the use of unfamiliar words and complex grammatical structures leads to reader confusion and procedural errors. A Controlled English approach uses 1% of the English language to reach 95% of the global market," notes Mr. Smart.
