RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C - 31 Mar 2000: -- IBM today announced the worldwide availability of IBM WebSphere(TM) Transcoding Publisher, software that dynamically translates Web information -- including text and images -- to a format readable on a variety of Internet appliances.

WebSphere Transcoding Publisher extends the reach of Web data and applications to a new generation of information appliances, including smart phones, car browsers and personal digital assistants (PDAs). Because Transcoding Publisher customizes the content to match the capabilities of the receiving device, applications do not have to be rewritten.

Built on an extensible, Java-based architecture, WebSphere Transcoding Publisher converts data and applications written in the standard markup languages of the Web -- HTML and XML -- to other formats such as Wireless Markup Language (WML). It can also convert graphics to a format that can be viewed on a wireless device.

The software is based on open industry standards and available for AIX(R), Linux, Solaris and Microsoft(R) Windows NT(R) and Windows(R) 2000 operating systems.

WebSphere Transcoding Publisher is available in ten languages (English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese). More information is available at
