Alcatel Chooses Bowne Global Solutions: A Worldwide Project to Streamline All Multilingual Technical Documentation
Press release from the issuing company
NEW YORK, June 9, 2005 -- Alcatel has just awarded Bowne Global Solutions (BGS), specialists in global solutions and multilingual document management, the task of streamlining multilingual technical documents for worldwide use.
In this multi-year project known as "OneDoc," BGS will simplify all of Alcatel's existing documentation by making improvements to the English source of the documents. BGS, with its global capabilities, will establish teams to work with Alcatel in each country covered by the project.
The objective of the "OneDoc" project is threefold:
- reduce Alcatel's production costs of technical documentation,
- establish a document database, which will bring together Alcatel's documentation in one central location,
- modernize processes, formats (moving towards XML) and document tools.
"Following an in-depth assessment of a number of suppliers, Alcatel chose BGS for its proven quality in the field of translation and for the solidity of its processes, its tools and its project management," says Bernard Kaesmann, project director at Alcatel. "Its presence on the international scene was a further determining factor in our choice. Where BGS has worked with Alcatel in the past, the results have lived up to expectations."
During the first year of the project, BGS will streamline technical documentation in various countries, including France.
"We are delighted at the confidence that Alcatel has shown in us," says Valerie Duplat, BGS sales manager. "This project, which encompasses technology, tools, processes, human resources and global project management, draws upon our expertise in global solutions and in multilingual document management. For this type of worldwide project, our policy of active alliance with our clients upstream from projects proves to be the best way to ensure maximum quality and effectiveness for the customer."
