Press Release Summary: Skrivanek Group Co-founds TAUS Data Association (TDA)

Press Release Body: Prague, Czech Republic -- July 11, 2008 - Teaming with
altogether 40 organizations, Skrivanek Group, one of the worldwide major translation
and localization service providers, co-founded a new industry association called
TAUS Data Association (TDA).

The association will create a database of translation memories and glossaries from
different business fields. Skrivanek's translators, project and quality managers,
and customer support staff will have access to this database and will be able to
look up terms and phrases for translation. The data pooled in the database will be
of the highest quality, assembled from the language assets of distinguished TDA
members and edited by dedicated TDA language professionals.

The major benefit from Skrivanek's active participation in TDA will draw Skrivanek's
clients. They will make direct profit from the most current research, development,
and best practices in the translation and localization industry. Working with the
TDA database, Skrivanek will further increase the quality of its language services
and help its clients to automate and streamline translation and localization
processes, and stimulate interoperability, especially in respect to the rapidly
growing demand on translations.

"We are very excited about this mutual collaboration of major language industry
players," says Jitka Steinmetzova, CEO of Skrivanek Group. "It's a big step forward
in the innovation of the translation and localization management practices."

To maximize the positive impact of Skrivanek's TDA experience to its clients,
Skrivanek decided to become one of the Gold Founding Members of TDA, a small group
of trend-setting and leading members including: Adobe, Autodesk, Cisco Systems, Dell
Global Localization Team, eBay Inc., EMC, Intel Americas Inc., Lionbridge, McAfee,
Microsoft Oracle, SDL, Skrivanek and Sun Microsystems.
