European Parliament Streamlines Multi-Language Publishing with Arbortext
Enterprise Publishing Software

ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 6, 2005 - Arbortext, the leading provider of
Enterprise Publishing software, today announced that the European
Parliament is using its software to create and publish the Official
Journal of the European Communities.  This journal is published in 20
key languages and supports 25 member countries that represent almost
half a billion citizens. 

The Office for Official Publications of the European Communities was
looking for a system that allowed for content creation in non-Latin
languages, enabled content reuse across multiple publications, and
improved processing and production times.  Using Arbortext software, the
European Parliament has realized considerable savings per year in the
content creation and publishing process, including reducing production
time by 30% and processing time by 95%.

According to Michel Brogard, Manager of the Official Journal Department,
"We needed to find a technology that would handle the complexity of our
specific requirements.  With Arbortext software we have built a system
that supports the huge increase in published pages due to increasing
language requirements without requiring additional personnel or budget

"We offer government groups like the European Parliament the unique
capability to create, manage and deliver government publications that
are accurate, relevant and timely," said Raymond Schiavone, President
and CEO at Arbortext.  "We're proud to continue our work with the
European Parliament as they build and implement a content creation
strategy across its organization."
