Inso Corporation and Basis Technology Corporation Announce Partnership

Basis Develops Asian Language Modules for Inso's DynaText ePublishing System

NEW YORK, February 18, 1999.

Inso Corporation and Basis Technology Corporation today announced a technology and service partnership at Inso's International User Group Conference in New York City. Under the agreement, Basis has developed Korean and Chinese (traditional and simplified) "pluggable" language system modules that drop into DynaText, Inso's Extensible Markup Language (XML)-based professional publishing system. In addition, Basis will provide support for the "language modules and will receive a royalty on future sales of DynaText that incorporate this new functionality.

"This important partnership with Basis Technology addresses the rapidly increasing demand for Inso's enterprise publishing solutions in world markets, as well as the increasing globalization of our business," said Steven R. Vana-Paxhia, Inso president and chief executive officer. "The partnership also demonstrates Inso's commitment to solidifying relationships and maintaining the highest level of support for our 'Global 2000' customers worldwide."

"Inso conducted a broad search for a partner with the unique range of skills and experience necessary for DynaText internationalization and localization for Asia," said Graham Marshall, vice president and general manager of Inso's Electronic Publishing Solutions. "We are pleased that our search culminated with Basis Technology Corporation, who clearly exhibited a unique combination of software development and linguistics expertise."

"Basis looks forward to working in concert with Inso to bring its powerful global publishing solutions to Asian markets quickly," said Steve Cohen, vice president of Basis Technology. "Basis' expertise and long experience in software internationalization, Unicode support, and SGML mesh perfectly with Inso's powerful publishing technologies. Quick deployment and a forward-looking international architecture give DynaText a competitive edge in the global publishing arena."
