What our customers say about our product:

"I have been looking for a great XML editor for months, and was extremely pleased to find yours. Your editor is the only one I have found that supports our existing schema and has a nice UI. A lot of other editors seem to fail particularly on recursive schemas, and yours does great. I also thought the infer schema feature was very innovative. I will be recommending your product to our customers doing modification of our XML setup."

Christine McGavran, Director of Development, Perpertual Entertainment.

"Congratulations on the new version, there are a lot of great things I am looking forward to playing with."

Michael Greve, Society for Danish Languages and Literature.

"I really like the Exchanger XML Editor and have used it as it has grown"

Chris Tomlinson

"The Exchanger XML is now my editor of choice. Even apart from the fact that the program seems to do exactly what I need, I feel confident putting in the time to learn to use it because of the great support experience I've had. I will certainly be letting my friends in the TEI community know what a great editor you have."

Nicholas D. Finke, Librarian, National Underground Railroad Freedom Center

"Keep up the good work. Now that a lot of others are trying to do something similar, it is nice to know that you seem to have succeeded well where (some) others are still floundering in some disarray. Thank you!"

Keith Hopper, Waikato University

"Our documentation group is using DocBook and we have evaluated several editors, and Exchanger XML Editor does the best job."

Joel Weeks

"We evaluated Exchanger here at the Max-Planck-Institute for Plasma Physics and liked what we saw."

Gregor Neu, Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik

"Thanks for your product. I use it daily and in addition to being a time saver it also provides a great learning framework. Your version Exchanger 3.0 is great."

George L. Draper
