[prMac.com] Hagenberg, Austria - PopChar, Ergonis' award-winning tool for finding and inserting special characters, moves into the offices of the European Union. The European Economic and Social Committee has started using PopChar to manage the linguistic diversity of their PC infrastructure.
With 27 member states the European Union has to deal with 23 official languages. In order that member state representatives may continue to work between meetings when they visit Brussels, Luxembourg, and Strasbourg, most European institutions endeavor to provide an appropriate IT infrastructure. Usually, entering all the language-specific special characters would require dozens of national keyboards, spread randomly throughout a hot desk environment. However, this is almost impossible to maintain at both the hardware and software levels.
Thankfully, PopChar solves this problem faced by every technologist and multi-lingual worker. PopChar makes "typing" of foreign characters easy without the need for different keyboards. With PopChar, thousands of language-specific and other special characters are only a few clicks away. Just pop up the PopChar window, click the desired character, and the character appears in your current document right away.
PopChar works with modern applications that support Unicode as well as with older applications that support only the smaller ASCII character set. In Unicode mode, PopChar makes it easy to navigate and search within fonts that contain thousands of special characters. Web designers especially enjoy the ability to insert HTML symbols.

PopChar is available for Mac OS X and Windows systems and can be purchased securely on the Ergonis Software website. For information about purchases, including enterprise licenses, volume discounts, as well as for downloading a trial version, visit the company's website.
