At the annual presentation of the Epsilon Awards this year, GRAHL Software Design’s PDF Annotator was awarded second place. This now award-winning software can be used to mark up an existing PDF file with comments, corrections, and drawings. This makes editing any kind of PDF document child’s play.
The European Software Conference (ESWC) has been presenting the Epsilon Awards since 2006. These are presented to software developers who have created a standalone application for the Windows, MacOS, or Linux platforms and who have made it through a qualifying round to distinguish themselves from the competition in open voting. Last year’s winner was the British company Alcohol Soft’s program Alcohol 120%.
The winner of this year’s competition was xplorer2. Runner-up was Germany’s PDF Annotator, and third place was awarded to the well-known compression tool WinRAR. After the qualifying round (July - September) and the voting phase (September - October), these three applications trounced the remaining competition. Results of the voting were announced at the November 4 session of the European Software Conference in Cologne.
Oliver Grahl of GRAHL software design states: "We are proud of PDF Annotator’s success in the face of strong competition from all over Europe. We see ourselves in a strengthened position from having made available a truly innovative piece of software that fills a real gap in today’s marketplace."
The award was presented by Hubert Gey, chairman of the Economic Committee of the City of Cologne, in the name of the Lord Mayor of Cologne, Fritz Schramma, and under the auspices of the European Software Conference.
PDF Annotator brings revolutionary change to the ways in which commercial, educational or home users can manage their PDF files. Now, any existing PDF document can be opened with PDF Annotator and enhanced with comments, highlighting, drawings and images.
Originally developed for Tablet PC’s and graphic tablets to let users add comments to PDF files with a stylus, the new Version 1.5 makes PDF Annotator available on ordinary desktop PC’s.
According to Oliver Grahl: "It’s unbelievable how PDF Annotator makes life easier in the office or in school. Proofreading, annotating and editing of PDF files now become child’s play."
