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 a translation document workflow management solution that improves translation efficiency and streamlines the authoring and localization workflow. Utilizing these two fully integrated products, KU Leuven students will now have the opportunity to strengthen their authoring, translation, and localization knowledge to support the growing demand for technical communication professionals and deliver documentation in users’ language of choice.

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. 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.
