STAR – the globalized software specialist
STAR has specialized in the development of globalized software for many years, a method of software development that ensures that the applications can be used for every language required, regardless of the character system.
The method is based on the use of Unicode as the character set and, in particular, on the software architecture and the way in which data is stored.
STAR consistently and rigorously applies object-orientated methods for the development of its software.

Standard software
The software products that can be used by customers without special configuration primarily include the language technology products:
Transit – computer-aided translation system with translation memory
TermStar – terminology management system
WebTerm – web-based system for management and publication of terminology
FormatChecker – tool for checking the quality of document formatting

Added to those are two networkable systems for spare parts logistics for managing military logistics data and the publication of spare parts catalogues, B007/PC and LS2000x.
All products are continually refined and enhanced by new features.
