NEW YORK, and DUBLIN, February 3, 2009 – Alchemy Software Development, a division of Translations.com, today announced that company president Tony O'Dowd has been appointed to the Advisory Board of the Localisation Research Centre (LRC).

Alchemy Software Development is the world's leading provider of visual localisation technology. Its flagship product, Alchemy CATALYST, is utilised by 80% of the world's largest software companies to accelerate entry into international markets and reduce localisation costs. In addition to Alchemy CATALYST, Alchemy offers Alchemy PUBLISHER, an advanced TM solution for documentation, and Alchemy Language Exchange, a web-based TM database server.

The LRC currently resides at the University of Limerick, where its key activities include research and development and the evaluation of localisation tools, the establishment of a Localisation Tools Library, consultancy services, education and training and the publication of a regular Journal. The LRC Industrial Advisory Board is comprised of senior executives from the localisation industry, relevant industry associations, academic institutions and government agencies.

"I am honoured to have been appointed to the LRC's distinguished board, and I look forward to participating in the organisation's important ongoing projects," said O'Dowd, who has over 22 years of experience in the localisation industry.

The LRC is also a participating college in the Centre for Next Generation Localisation (CNGL). O'Dowd has served in an advisory roll on the CNGL's Executive Board since last November.

Following a thorough review of its operation in 2005, the LRC continued to work with worldwide digital publishers and their partners who are interested in future technologies and processes for GILT; it now focuses its activities on the provision of relevant well researched content rich information on future trends and technologies within a framework of a unique industry and academic collaboration which provides an unparalleled network of expertise.
