WIRIS editor wins the Product Innovation Award at the GESS Awards conference in Dubai

Yes! We did it! We have won the Product Innovation Award - Jugdes Choice at the GESS Awards conference in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

This has been possible thanks to an accurate work regarding localisation of our math formula editor to Arabic, and especially thanks to a broad perspective on what localisation means. In fact, it means a lot more than translation:

  • Right-to-left writing
  • Mirroring of the formulas
  • Arabic numbers (of course, not the ones that we use in English, which are also Arabic in origin! :)
  • Ligatures for the variable definitions
  • Accessibility in Arabic

You can read more about this in our Arabic solution page or try the Arabic editor live.

The result of all this work: The prize...

... and the business. :)
