Dutch Student Joins Research Organization CA Labs Europe
Finalist in International Case Competition 2011 will Work on Software Localization Project
Utrecht, 26 April 2012 - CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that Frederik Mijnhardt, MSc student at Utrecht University, the Netherlands, has joined a project team of its research organization CA Labs Europe to investigate new technologies to accelerate software localization. At the end of 2011 Frederik and two fellow students from the Utrecht University were finalists in the CA Technologies International Case Competition 2011 which took place at CA World in Las Vegas.
Frederik Mijnhardt: “I am excited to be collaborating with CA Labs Europe, in particular with the project team researching translation tools for multi-lingual product localization. Many users of software products understand English; however, IT nowadays is present in all aspects of life and business. This requires native language support, which still takes a lot of time and is costly. We are exploring better, faster and more cost-effective techniques to reduce time-to-market of CA Technologies software in multiple languages.”
Marco van Lieverloo, country manager, CA Technologies Netherlands: “Software localization is important to improve the use and comprehension of applications. That is why we are investing research efforts to enhance our translation technology. We were thrilled to have Utrecht University as one of the finalists in the International Case Competition. The fact that Frederik is now been asked to join the research project team at CA Labs Europe is a fair reward for his commitment and an appreciation of his knowledge and expertise.”
CA Labs Europe, created in 2011 and based in Barcelona, is CA Technologies European research center, focusing on knowledge creation and on achieving advanced research results. Together with European universities, customers, professional associations and government organizations, it explores novel products and emerging technologies, on various research projects that respond to current and future needs faced by the industry. The results of these projects vary from research publications, to best practices, to new directions for products.
