QuarkXpress 7 for Canada
Quark today announced that it will release a new Canadian edition of QuarkXPress 7, the flagship software for multi-channel page-layout and design. QuarkXPress 7 Canadian Edition will include English and French manuals, spell check and hyphenation functionality and will start shipping to distribution partners in the second quarter of 2007. The company said that QuarkXPress 7 Canadian Edition will provide user interfaces in both French and English, allowing users to switch freely between these languages and use fully localized menus and windows in QuarkXPress. In addition, it supports spell-checking and full text authoring, following specific hyphenation and justification rules for French, U.S. English, and International English.
"Quark is responding to the requirements of Canadian customers, as well as the French language requirements of the Quebec government, by providing software that fully supports both French and English-speaking users," said Richard Pasewark, Quark's senior vice president of Sales (Americas). "Canadian users now have an attractive option to purchase or upgrade to QuarkXPress 7 and benefit from its workflow and collaboration features for the same price as the English version of QuarkXPress. We are pleased to make QuarkXPress 7 easily accessible to French and English-speaking customers."
Customers who purchase the U.S. English version of QuarkXPress 7 between January 1, 2007 and September 30, 2007 can exchange their license to QuarkXPress 7 Canadian Edition at no charge when it becomes available. Pricing will be US$750 for a full license or US$250 when upgrading from a previous version of QuarkXPress.
