SoftSkill demonstrates products at SIB 2004, Tunis, Tunisia

Tunis, Tunisia, December 5, 2004

The " Salon International de l'Informatique et de la Bureatique " or SIB, is Tunisia's largest convention for IT services and products. SoftSkill showcased its products at the booth of Medist, Tunisia's largest Apple dealer. Arabix Pro , TextraFreeHand and Illustrator , and the Office Suite (Horuf and Arqam ) all received great reviews from private and government visitors at SIB.

Apple users were excited about having a word processing solution for Mac OS X that is built specifically for bidirectional Arabic and Roman text, and were impressed by Horuf's support for OpenType, TrueType, OS 9 Classic, and Mac OS X Arabic fonts.

Visitors were also excited about Arabix Pro and its ability to enter text into Final Cut Pro, Quark Xpress, and almost any other application with Roman-only support, and its ability to re-edit pasted text with just one click.

The Textra plug-in for Macromedia FreeHand MX and Adobe Illustrator 9 and 10 was well-received for the ability to directly type Arabic right within the two leading design applications, and for Textra FreeHand's ability to justify Arabic text using Keshida (extension of ligatures).

And Tunis was a beautiful city with ancient Roman, Phoenician, and Islamic civilization and culture, and we look forward to coming back very soon!
