RSLogix 5000 Programming Software From Rockwell Automation now Translated Into Chinese, Japanese and Korean Languages
MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio, Oct. 5, 2006 - The new Rockwell Software RSLogix 5000 v.15 programming software from Rockwell Automation has undergone translation and is now available in Chinese, Japanese and Korean (CJK) languages, allowing control system designers and system-level users in these countries to more easily access a programming environment in their native language. In addition to translation of the software environment, RSLogix 5000 has also been updated to support UNICODE based text so users can create project documentation using languages that require double byte characters such as Kanji. "This new software allows our customers to more effectively collaborate on global manufacturing projects," said Ron Bliss, Logix/NetLinx software marketing manager, Rockwell Automation. "It helps ensure that engineers and programmers all around the world can leverage the power of our configuration tools in the language of their choice."
Previously only offered in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish, the new CJK translation for RSLogix 5000 helps enable Rockwell Automation to deliver the right set of functionality to users in key Asian markets. While the translation will benefit customers in a broad range of industries and applications, it will specifically respond to the increased demand for flexible language functionality in automotive and semiconductor and process control industries.
Additionally, corresponding technical documentation such as programming manuals, reference manuals, system reference manuals, user manuals, and selection guides are published in Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese and Spanish. Together the translated software and technical documents create an easy-to-use software for the Allen-Bradley Logix control platform user. The RSLogix 5000 v.15 programming software with CJK translation is currently shipping. For more information, visit www.ab.com/go/rslogix5000.
