2008-10-28 – Lingsoft's high quality proofing tools integrated with Infomaker's Newspilot editorial platform have, in a short space of time, conquered a significant slice of the Swedish markets. Infomaker has secured a considerable number of new clients for its editorial platform. As a result a notable part of Swedish press now uses Lingsoft's language technology.

"I dare say that Newspilot and Lingsoft offer the best language proofing tools in the market. They include spelling and grammar checking, configurable rules for writing, automatic correction and synonyms. The tools work with Newspilot both in the office as well as on the road. They carry out their functions during writing, as in, e.g., Microsoft Word, or when you yourself wish to use them. All is available directly in Newspilot. Updating of common wordlists and writing rules is automatic", the managing director of Infomaker, Peter Månsson, says, summarizing its main features.

Lingsoft provides language proofing tools for several languages, e.g., Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian and Danish. The tools have been integrated to Newspilot and are also available for Adobe InDesign and InCopy as well as QuarkXPress and QuarkCopyDesk.

"The same tools can be used throughout an entire production chain, especially now that Lingsoft has published its support for grammar checking and own writing rules, also in its Proofreader plug-in for Adobe InDesign and InCopy. Managing the whole chain of production is easy and can be done directly in Newspilot".

"We feel very happy and are satisfied with the success of Newspilot. Infomaker's accomplishment is excellent. Rarely have we seen our language proofing tools functioning in such a flexible manner and as fast as in Newspilot. The last addition, i.e., the possibility to define writing rules, provides the newspaper editors with a rapidly reacting tool, for example, to deal with wrongly spelled names and expressions to be avoided. Also in this, Infomaker has been the pioneer ", says the managing director of Lingsoft Juhani Reiman.
