Tansa Systems AS, of Oslo, Norway, and Lakewood Ranch, Fla., the developer of the Tansa text-proofing system, announced that Software Consulting Services LLC, in Nazareth, Pa., is now a Tansa reseller in North America.
SCS will sell Tansa text proofing as an add-on to the SCOOP editorial system developed by Sweden’s SCOOP Publishware. SCS is the exclusive U.S. reseller of the SCOOP system. SCS also distributes SCOOP in Canada and the Caribbean Islands.
SCS Vice President Kurt Jackson called the decision “a natural evolution for us with the SCOOP Editorial products,” given Tansa’s position in the Scandinavian market, where it is used with SCOOP editorial systems at some of the largest newspapers, including Norway’s Finansavisen and Vart Land and Sweden’s Expressen.
Unlike other spelling checkers, Tansa proofreads content in phrases, enabling it to check not only spelling, but also usage and style. The application checks words in documents against several dictionaries and sets of style rules customized specifically for an organization.
Reseller partners work with Tansa to ensure that its tools function properly within the content-production systems. In North America, Tansa software can be purchased from AMC, SaxoTech Inc., Software Consulting Services, and Unisys.
