MapSpeller™ Editions at Version 4.x

Edgetech America, Inc. is pleased to offer three editions of MapSpeller at version 4.x (versions 4.0 and 4.1)
  1. The Standard Edition is for those who publish maps in a single language and rely on databases built by others.
  2. The Professional Edition is for those whose responsibility includes high-quality geodatabases. Standard Edition users rely on them for accurate layer labels, geodatabase annotations, and any tabular information. Of course, Professional Edition users may also want to publish maps and therefore that edition includes all the capabilities of the Standard Edition as well. In addition, users of the Professional Edition may elect to purchase support for up to two additional languages. Proofing is limited to one language at a time however.
  3. The Multilingual Edition offers all the capabilities of the Professional Edition but is designed for those who work with multilingual maps. It can proof those maps (& tables) in multiple languages simultaneously and supports 11 languages (14 cultures).
