BEIKS Announces Turkish Localization Kit for Palm OS 5.x

DALLAS (July 10, 2003) - - Beiks LLC announces the addition of its new InterType Turkish Localization Kit to its family of localization products. With InterType Turkish Localization Kit installed on a Palm OS 5.x PDA, users will be able to read and input Turkish language characters directly into their handhelds.

The InterType Turkish Localization Kit comes as a result of popular request by Beiks’ customers who have been using its Turkish Dictionary, as well as many other mobile professionals who have recently upgraded to Palm OS 5 powered devices.

Concurrent with the Turkish language plug-in, Beiks also announces a new, more robust version of the core InterType application itself, which will benefit all existing users of Beiks InterType localization kits.
