XLOC 4.0 to be Unveiled at GDC 2010

RALEIGH, N.C.– March 3, 2010 - XLOC, a leading provider of global localization solutions for video games, will be launching XLOC 4.0, the newest version of the company’s Web-based localization management product, at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco. The latest version of the localization system incorporates multiple enhancements, such as:

• XLOC API for seamless integration of developers' tools and processes.

• Robust translation memory features and support.

• More than 200 file formats supported.

• Extended and adaptable asset build features.

• Increased historical data for translations.

• Expanded Proto-type build capabilities.

“Our core focus is to help our customers create high-quality localizations in less time and with lower cost than traditional methods. We continually update our solution to add features and elements that create a more valuable, streamlined and efficient localization process,” said Mason Deming, co-founder and chief technical officer of XLOC.“We are very excited to share these new capabilities with our current and future clients.”

XLOC will be sponsoring the Game Localization Summit at GDC and team members will be available to talk with developers and producers about the new product. The President and CTO will also be giving onsite, technical demos and feature walk-throughs to select clients and partners.

The XLOC system was created based on industry experience, with the goal of continually enhancing its features to meet constantly evolving market needs, and offering utmost flexibility. XLOC offers a completely customizable management solution for integrating localization into game development to enable simultaneous global shipment. As developers provide their latest assets, XLOC dynamically synchronizes with these localized game resources, proactively generating current, changing asset lists and separating the translation effort from game asset format specifics. This process allows for asset updates to be seen in real-time by developers, translators and publishers, and expedites time to market.
