Zanichelli Purchases License for Canoo's WMTrans Language Products

Canoo today announced that it has licensed one of its WMTrans language
products (http://www.canoo.com/wmtrans) to Zanichelli Editore S.P.A.

The WMTrans product is being used for the development and distribution of
dictionary products.

Enrico Lanfranchi, the editor responsible for lexicography at Zanichelli
commented: "Canoo offers the most comprehensive list of grammatical
features. We tested and evaluated extensively, and have decided to use
WMTrans for Zanichelli's German grammar and dictionary products. The high
data quality convinced us to select WMTrans."

"We are excited that Zanichelli has chosen Canoo for its German language
products", commented Dr. Elisabeth Maier, Product Manager for the WMTrans
product range at Canoo. "WMTrans offers the best overall coverage for German
and provides a perfect base to develop language learning products for
e-learning and print."
