The School of Computing and Information Engineering at the University of Ulster, Coleraine, in partnership with a Dundalk based firm, Brandt Translations, have just completed the first quarter of 2-year FUSION project.
The purpose of the project is to further develop and improve the company’s software testing tool called “Shadow” for market sales. The project will incorporate new creative initiatives within the existing tool to widen its application market. Brandt Translations performs translation and localisation services for its clients. Localisation is the process of taking a product working in one language, usually English, and re-engineering it so that it functions in other languages such as French, German, Italian or Chinese. Localisable elements of a program include the words on the user interface, date time formats, number formats, address layouts and much other data.
The project management team comprises: Chairman: Mr Dermot Hannan, Project Manager, Mr Kieran Arthur, both from Brandt Translations, and Academic Partner: Dr Michaela Black, Lecturer in the School of Computing and Information Engineering. Mr Mark Ward has been appointed as ‘Knowledge Carrier’ for the project.
The project link has also supported a summer student placement and led to a final year project.
Brandt Translations offer Translation and localisation services; Software development and consultancy; and International services.
A demo of the software is available from the company website at www.brandttechnologies.com.
