New Open Source Translation Management System

The forthcoming GlobalSight open source translation management system (TMS), sponsored by Welocalize (, will provide support for Clay Tablet 2.0 to enable connectivity to a wide variety of content management systems (CMS) or content repositories. This approach ensures "out of the box" connectivity to a wide range of CMS and integration possibilities with most others.

GlobalSight will launch on Jan. 5, 2009, as the first open source TMS product that provides a scalable translation management platform for companies to manage, translate, and deliver global content. Current development efforts have focused on transitioning the product to open source by replacing several third-party software components with open source equivalents.

Clay Tablet 2.0 from Clay Tablet Technologies ( provides a neutral and prevalent platform to connect with a wide variety of content repositories. By using the Clay Tablet SDK, GlobalSight users will be able to connect quickly and easily to their CMS of choice.

GlobalSight is a collaborative, open source initiative to develop a flexible and sustainable TMS that leverages the best ideas and addresses the true needs of the industry. In this noncaptive community, participants are free to discuss, discover, and build upon a translation process automation tool that provides choice and flexibility and can be shared by all. The direction and development of the GlobalSight Open Source Initiative is dictated by community members. For more information and to join the community, visit
