Winsoft will localise, distribute Serif software

Winsoft International, arguably best know for localising Adobe software into Arabic, Hebrew and other languages, has announced that they will be working together with UK-based Serif to bring Serif’s software titles to the Middle East and other markets.

Serif’s software titles for Microsoft Windows includes PagePlus, WebPlus, PhotoPlus, DrawPlus, MoviePlus, PagePlus Essentials, WebPlus Essentials, PhotoPlus Essentials and Digital Scrapbook Artist 2.

Serif’s stated aim is “to develop better value alternatives to high-end design and publishing packages.”

For example, on Amazon.com, Serif’s PhotoPlus X4 sells for $80 while Adobe Photoshop CS5 goes for $660. A Student and Teacher edition of Photoshop CS5 is available for about $190 and an upgrade version cost about as much.

All of Serif’s software is already available in English, French and German. Under the partnership with Winsoft, PagePlus, WebPlus and PhotoPlus will be made available in Arabic, Hebrew, Spanish, Italian, Czech, Polish, Russian, Swedish and Dutch with the other applications to follow.

Winsoft will in an initial stage help Serif distribute English-language versions of their software to new markets, including Continental Europe, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America.

The additional languages, localised by Winsoft, will arrive over the next few months and next year.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
