SoftSkill demonstrates products at SIB 2004, Tunis,
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 the Office Suite (Horuf
) all received great reviews from private and government visitors
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!
