Beijing Foreign Studies University Chooses MadCap Software to Provide Students With Advanced Technical Writing and Translation Tools to Support Technical Communications Careers in the Global Economy
La Jolla, CA and Beijing, China – June 9, 2016 – Beijing Foreign Studies University (BFSU) is teaming up with MadCap Software to empower students pursuing a master’s degree in Translation and Interpretation with a strong competitive lead when entering the workforce. Using the fully integrated MadCap Flare and MadCap Lingo products, BFSU students will gain first-hand experience in developing, translating and localizing state-of-the-art documentation across a range of print and online formats.
MadCap Flare is the most advanced technical authoring and multi-channel publishing software for delivering content across print, Web, desktop and mobile channels. MadCap Lingo computer-assisted translation (CAT) software offers translation memory support and enables a more integrated authoring and translation workflow by eliminating the need for any file transfers—preserving both the content and formatting.
The School of English and International Studies (SEIS) at BFSU is one of the leading institutions in China for training highly qualified interpreters and translators. BFSU is incorporating MadCap Flare and MadCap Lingo into its Translation and Localization course to ensure the consistent delivery of information across different channels–even as content is tailored to support different regions around the world.
Technical writing is an emerging profession in China, and there’s a need for modern software tools to serve the needs of businesses with an increasingly global reach,” said Sanjun Sun, PhD, director of the Master of Translation and Interpretation program at BFSU. “By adopting state-of-the-art MadCap Flare and MadCap Lingo software for our course, we are equipping our translation students with modern tools and techniques for supporting today’s technical writing, content management, and localization demands.”
“We are thrilled to have been selected by Beijing Foreign Studies University as the software of choice for empowering students to apply best practices in technical authoring, publishing and translation, using our integrated MadCap Flare and Lingo software,” said Anthony Olivier, MadCap founder and CEO. “Through our MadCap Scholar Program, it is our goal to offer students all over the world with the tools that will help enhance their skill sets and better position them in the workforce. Our work with BFSU reflects a mutual dedication to preparing students for the real-world communications needs that businesses face worldwide.”
