In time for Christmas, 1,036 schools will receive a free license to install Antidote 10, Druide informatique's flagship writing aid software, on ten computers.

Druide made the announcement at the GRICS annual convention, a network that brings together all of Quebec's school boards to meet their IT management requirements, both administrative and educational.

Druide has indeed undertaken to give an Antidote to a school for every ten copies sold at retail in Canada and Belgium. It is the Antidote buyers who designate the winning establishments by voting for the school of their choice. And many of them voted; as many as 100,932 of them felt that their favorite school could make good use of Antidote's educational potential.

Quebec is home to the majority of the winning schools. In total, since the first edition of Antidote published in 1996, 3,799 schools have shared the right to install Antidote on 42,591 computers, which represents more than $ 4.25 million in software and maintenance distributed free of charge to educational institutions.

Druide is happy to contribute in this way, with the complicity of its customers, to the educational effort and to the improvement of French. Antidote can indeed provide valuable services to students, young and old. Its resources for writing in French, designed primarily for professional office automation, are accessible in a simple and educational way.

Composed of an advanced corrector, multiple dictionaries and language guides, Antidote integrates directly into the main word processing and e-mail software, on Windows, Mac and Linux. Launched last year, edition 10 of Antidote brings more than 120 new features for French and English, including, in its bilingual version, 2.5 million translations of words and expressions.

Druide informatique produces and markets Antidote, software for helping writing French and English, as well as Tap'Touche, software for learning to type on the keyboard. She also created the WebElixir service, which oversees the quality of websites. In addition to these applications, its sales team distributes the books of Éditions Druide, a subsidiary whose mission is to publish literature and reference works.
