“InVesalius is a Medical imaging 3D reconstruction software which aims to assist diagnosis and surgical planning. Based on a sequence of two dimensional (2D) images (DICOM-format), acquired through computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance (MRI) equipments, InVesalius software allows the reconstruction of virtual three dimensional (3D) models, correspondent to the anatomical region of interest.

InVesalius has been using Transifex for localization. Today we read a review on Ohloh by Tatiana Al-Chueyr which made us smile, so we thought we’d share it with you. Here goes a snippet of it:

Transifex […] really helps translators to concentrate on the language translation and not on details of PO files. Were’re currently using Transifex on a 3D medical imaging reconstruction software called InVesalius, sponsored by the Brazilian Government. In less than a week hosted at Transifex website, InVesalius was already translated to French.

Before Transifex, it was a big headache to teach how doctors could help us translating po files.”
