Translation Technology For Business

How STAR Transit NXT can help grow your business internationally.

We live in an increasingly globalized world, where success comes down to be understood in every language.

Regulatory requirements also play a key factor. We need to translate websites, documents, marketing copy, user interfaces, contracts and much more.

Do you need to translate all your content again and again? Thankfully not. With STAR Transit you can store your translation and reuse it across your product suites – thus delivering faster time to market with consistent quality copy.

Talk to our technology team to learn more about how we can help your business.

End of Windows Server 2003 support

Microsoft has discontinued support for Windows Server 2003 in 2015 and will no longer provide security updates. We therefore strongly advise against installing the Service Pack in a Windows Server 2003 system.

Should you use Transit/TermStar in a Windows Server 2003, full functionality of the software cannot be guaranteed, and no support can be provided.
