China releases world’s first Tibetan-language office software

TibetanReview.net, Jan 23, 2008

China said it had released the world’s first Tibetan-language office software. “Neo-shine Tibet Office 3.0”, jointly developed by China Standard Software Corporation (CSCC) and Tibet University, will push the development of Tibet’s information industry, China’s official Xinhua news agency Jan 10 cited Chen Ying, an official with China’s Ministry of Information Industry, as saying.

“The software is world-leading because the programmers have tackled several technological difficulties, such as the coding and input of the Tibetan language,” Han Naiping, manager of CSCC, was quoted as saying. The office software is expected to replace Microsoft Office, which requires additional plug-ins for the use of the Tibetan language.

The Ministry of Information Industry has said Chinese companies were also developing 12 other Tibetan Software products, including “STAR Tibetan for Windows 2000/XP” and “Tibetan operating system for Linux”. These software products will be launched later in 2008, the report said.
