Welocalize’s translation management system (TMS) GlobalSight has been around for more than 15 years. Prior to 2005, it was an off-the-shelf commercial offering. In 2008, Welocalize, a global language services provider, acquired Transware which owned GlobalSight software as an in-house tool. Making GlobalSight open source in 2009 was a business decision by Welocalize, as it allowed users and clients the most options to support and create solutions that work best for them. As it turned out, clients liked the decision and Welocalize embraced the open source model as a business strategy. The GlobalSight community has been active since then and is a vibrant, active group of users, developers, and translation professionals. Users like GlobalSight because it is a fully featured TMS system, which is core to supporting localization and translation programs in large enterprises.
