BibLibre sounds good in French, even though we do realize it's hardly pronounceable in English because of that guttural French R towards the end. We're sorry about that and try to make up for it by speaking the best English we can; and we can, indeed, work with you in English: we're located in France but have clients in the South Pacific, in Armenia: Open Source software knows no borders, and this is a truly global world, right? BibLibre was incorporated in 2007, building on 5 successful years of work as free-lance consultants in open source softwares in libraries in general, and Koha in particular.
