LangBox International products have successfully passed
the Year 2000 certification process. In fact, after
the assessment phase, it appeared that there is no specific
date related business functionality within the LangBox
International Language supplement products. The reason
is because these products are just dealing with I/O
strings, fonts, keyboard mapping and character codeset
management, and don't embbed any date calculation routines.
only Y2K implication that exists within the LangBox
International product is the "Time Limited" licensing,
issued only to customers for demo or trial purposes.
For regular Permanent licenses ("UNLIMITED") this date
checking code is not used at all. In order to establish
the Y2K certification for all products, this specific
date function has been assessed and successfully tested
for the Year 2000 roll over problem, using the following
key dates :

following products :
