We’re happy to announce the new ApSIC Xbench 3.0 Academic Program.
This Academic Program is available for any University delivering translation courses, and its main benefit is a 50% reduction in Xbench 3.0 license cost on purchase plus additional discounts via the Whitelisted Domain License Mode.
These are the steps to set up your University license for the Academic Program:
- Make a purchase of 10 or more subscription years in our web store using an email with the University domain in your purchase.
- Contact us to let us know that you are a University buying under the Academic Program. We will then double the amount of time you purchased, which effectively acts as a 50% discount on purchase. In addition, we will also set up your account in Whitelisted Domain License Mode so that you can benefit from additional discounts when your teachers and students are not active for more than a week.
- Enter the Xbench Control Panel and add your teachers and students. Remember that the Xbench license allows you to add and remove users whenever you need. Please note that with the Academic Program, only users with the University email domain are allowed in the Control Panel.
If you have any questions about this program, please do not hesitate to Contact Us.

This integration brings to new things to Xbench:
- It is the first time Xbench integrates with a web-based service. Until know all formats were classical offline formats. We’re looking forward to adding more web-based integrations in the future.
- It is the first time Xbench edits directly strings. Until now we always had the original application edit strings. This was a design decision in Xbench because data integrity is a priority for us and we believe that the best way to ensure data integrity is to outsource the editing task to the original application. This way if the original application decides to make subtle changes in their internal propietary formats, Xbench would not break anything. However, in this case, the clearly defined Transifex API make us to break our legendary design rule for once.
We hope that you like this integration. You can watch the video here (for best viewing experience, remember to choose the highest resolution and watch it full screen).

We’re happy to announce that now we have French versions of the Xbench 3.0 Quick Reference Card and of the Plugin for SDL Trados Studio User’s Guide.
As usual, they can be downloaded from the Documentation page.
Once more, a big thanks to Franck Charreire, also translator of the Xbench 3.0 User’s Guide, for his great effort in making Xbench documentation available for the French community.
