There had been much speculation about the buyout of Lionbridge.Someone even pointed me out to something like this as well. Lionbridge localizes a broad range of Microsoft products and content in as many as 60 languages. Lionbridge with presence in many countries delivers a wide range of cost-efficient global outsourcing services including localization, development and testing. Lionbridge localization services enable organizations to release products and content in all markets globally. Across industries, global organizations rely on Lionbridge services to increase international market share, speed adoption of global products and content,to enhance their return on enterprise applications and IT system investments. Microsoft said Lionhead will create games exclusively for the Xbox 360 console and the Windows operating system. The deal involves Lionbridge's hosted service offering, including its Logoport translation memory. Lionbrdge had earlier confirmed that Microsoft has sent hundreds of translation memories to Lionbridge for sequencing. Earlier these TMs were managed by Trados.I see this deal in a way as a reflection of Microsoft’s new learning – to co-opt and if necessary but them out. Peter Molyneux, Lionbridge’s founder joins Microsoft as part of the deal. As some see it – he fits Microsoft well, not only because he never meets a deadline (see Windows Vista delay), but also because he promises more than he delivers (see the history of Windows!!. Digs apart, seriously this is a great move - coming together.
