WLR Customers Can Search the Web in Languages Other Than English with Tango 1browser


World Language Resources, Inc. (WLR), the online provider of a selection of language-related products, has announced that it now offers Alis Technologies' Tango Browser v.3.1 on its Web site at http://www.worldlanguage.com. According to the announcement, Tango is a high-performance, multilingual Internet browser that makes Web pages that have been developed many of more than 90 languages readable in the user's preferred language.

Languages supported include left-to-right languages such as English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish and right-to-left read languages such as Hebrew and Arabic, as well as ideographic languages such as Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

With the flexibility of a 19-language interface, users can view menus, messages, and online help in their native languages. The interface can be switched on-the-fly to suit the language needs of multiple users. Designed to eliminate the time wasted scrolling through Web pages in search of hyperlinks to specific language versions, Tango uses the preferred language list specified during installation to automatically display a page in one of the languages, whenever such a version is available.

WLR says that Tango is the only browser to offer truly internationalized content. For instance, while the "What's-New" quick-access button on the English interface leads to "What's New on Yahoo!," the same button on the Spanish interface, labeled "Novedades," will instead take you to a site of interest to Spanish-speaking users.

In addition to providing multimedia capabilities and support for cookies, the user-friendly browser incorporates support for frames as well as transaction security with SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption.
