San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 13, 2006 –-
gOFFICE.com, the Web 2.0 office suite with the highest visitor traffic as measured by Alexa.com, today announced that it has translated gOFFICE.com from English to Japanese. "Japan is a vital market for gOFFICE," said Kevin Warnock, founder and CEO of Silveroffice, Inc., the company behind gOFFICE.
gOFFICE.com is a free website where people can accomplish meaningful work with just a PC or Macintosh and a web browser. While single application sites like Writely and NumSum offer individual office applications, gOFFICE brings three major productivity applications together on one easy-to-use website, with a single username and password. gOFFICE today offers desktop publishing (think Microsoft Publisher), word processing (think Microsoft Word) and spreadsheet editing (think Microsoft Excel). "A presentation application (think Microsoft PowerPoint) will arrive later this month" said Warnock, "in a line of several additional applications under development."
gOFFICE.com users do not sacrifice quality of output by using a web-based word processor. "To the contrary, the output of gOFFICE often surpasses the typographic quality of output from any online or legacy word processor on the market, including Microsoft Word," said Warnock, who explained the key to gOFFICE's outstanding output quality: "gOFFICE is a typesetter disguised as a word processor. We've wrapped the legendary TeX typesetting engine by famed computer scientist Donald Knuth in a sleek, easy-to-use web interface." The only output that matches gOFFICE output comes from costly publishing tools such as the impressive Adobe InDesign CS2 application, designed for local installation on a computer.
TeX, used by thousands of mathematicians, scientists and physicists, produces publication quality output, and is used extensively to publish journals and books. Normally, using TeX requires typing written commands that resemble computer source code. gOFFICE users avoid such complexities, and interact with a friendly editor that resembles Microsoft Word. To preserve the outstanding output quality of TeX, gOFFICE outputs its results to Portable Document Format (PDF) files. gOFFICE text can be edited at the site, eliminating the difficulty with editing PDF documents.
gOFFICE holds extensive intellectual property rights, including trade secrets, a patent application and US and international trademark applications covering its gOFFICE brand. The Delaware Corporation is based in San Francisco and has two employees plus Warnock.
