xmjs_108px

Date: Tuesday, May 30, 2017
Time: 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM Pacific Time

As a technical writer, you are not just “describing stuff”. You are creating sophisticated text, which always aims to be complete, easy to understand, well-structured, error-free and reusable. You have mastered this art, but it is a time-consuming and demanding process. This is why you write in XMetaL Author, which helps you to always use the correct structure and lets you focus less on layout and more on content. By using Congree you can even go a step further. While you create text, Congree reminds you of the style guide, technical term use and general writing rules in place at your company. Congree recommends the company’s own predefined sentences based on context or structure. Just like that–on the fly by seamlessly integrating into XMetaL Author. Join our webinar and see how XMetaL and Congree work together and how this powerful combination will help you to follow writing guidelines effortlessly so you can focus on what you really want to do: creating perfect documentation.

Authoring, Managing, and Publishing Reusable and Customizable Content with Ease

xmjs_108px

Date: Wednesday, February 1, 2017
Time: 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM Pacific Time

The ability to create content that can be easily and cost-effectively reused, updated, customized, translated, published to multiple output formats, and automated is not a “nice-to-have” feature any more. It’s critical to delivering product content to your customers in the right way at the right time.

However, when it comes to content authoring, publishing, and management, there is often a trade-off between simplicity and features. Simple, easy-to-use tools may lack powerful features, while full-featured products may be too complicated.

Join Tom Magliery of JustSystems, the makers of XMetaL XML Editor, and Alex Masycheff of Intuillion, the makers of DITAToo DITA CMS to see how a content authoring, management, and publishing solution can be simple, powerful, and affordable at the same time. You’ll see how to:

  • Instantly and automatically convert your legacy documentation from MS Word
  • Move and rename files and folders while all links are updated automatically
  • Create and update content without having to deal with the complexity of the content model
  • Automatically find potentially reusable content and replace it with reusable components
  • Reuse entire projects
  • Publish to multiple formats
  • Collaborate with your team members

… and much more
