We're happy to share that both JIRA and Confluence are now fully localised
Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) July 20, 2006
Atlassian Software Systems and partner ImaHima, Inc. have announced the release of Confluence 2.2.1aJ, which supports both Japanese and English languages. Confluence 2.2, the enterprise wiki, was released in May with support for internationalisation (i18n). This is its first fully localised version. For more information on Confluence, visit the Atlassian homepage http://www.atlassian.com/c/PR-C/11312 (Japanese) or http://www.atlassian.com/c/PR-C/11310  (English).
In February, Atlassian announced its exclusive distribution agreement with ImaHima. Under the agreement, ImaHima will market, distribute, and support both Confluence and JIRA in Japan. At the same time, Atlassian and ImaHima also announced the release of a fully localised Japanese version of JIRA 3.5.
"We're happy to share that both JIRA and Confluence are now fully localised," says Neeraj Jhanji, CEO of ImaHima. "Atlassian has engineered their products in such a way that they're quite easy to localise and modify for different markets. The demand for their products in Japan has exceeded expectations."
"We are thrilled that ImaHima created the first fully localised version of Confluence in less than a month since the latest version was released," said William Anderson, Director of the Atlassian Partner Program. "Besides the fact that we like the folks at ImaHima, their international mindset, knowledge of the local markets, and passion for best of breed solutions make them a great partner."
Confluence is a practical collaboration and knowledge management solution that combines the simplicity of a wiki with the powerful features enterprises demand. Over 1,400 organisations around the world rely on Confluence to help them make better business decisions, collaborate, and share information. Confluence enjoys additional support from the active Atlassian Developer Network, which has contributed nearly 150 useful plugins that extend the functionality of the application. With the growing need for sharing and managing information better, Atlassian products have been adopted into just about every business niche by organisations of all sizes.
