Assima Multilingual Suite

Product Overview

Assima Multilingual Suite

Offering a fast, efficient way to transform your applications into the language of your users, the Assima Multilingual Suite (AMS) is the cross-platform solution that turns any application multilingual.

The AMS solution allows you to localize an existing application without modifying the source code or the executable. AMS supports a wide range of technical environments and can be applied on most Windows applications, Web applications, legacy character-mode applications, reporting tools and databases.

How It Works

Runtime Localization Technology™ delivers dynamic multilingual interfaces on-the-fly.

Using a source code parser that extracts the GUI text from the application code into a separate database file, the application interface can be translated without interfering with the source application code.

When a translated instance is called by the user, the Runtime Localization Technology™ intercepts and replaces the application text running in its original language, with a new translated interface layer.


1. Extract/Capture: The first goal is to establish the list of texts to translate. This is usually built by running one or several of the extractor components that come with AMS.

2. Translate: This is where the translations are entered directly into AMS or using Excel and then imported. This is an easy process with no training required.

3. Test/QA: The translated application can then be tested and checked for issues including missing or incorrect translations.

4. Package/Deploy: It is possible to create one version of the application per language or have one localized version that contains all languages. The last step is generally straightforward and Software Vendors can easily embed the AMS runtime inside their applications.
