Stilo is pleased to be one of the Silver Sponsors at this year’s LavaCon USA conference being held in Portland, Oregon from November 5-8. Why not come and visit us on booth 42 and learn more about Migrate and AuthorBridge.

LavaCon is a gathering place for content strategists, content engineers, documentation managers, and other content professionals. The 2017 content strategy conference focuses on how to build bridges: bridges between content silos, technology silos, even people silos.

Stop by our booth in the expo hall and ask us for a demo of Migrate, our cloud XML conversion service which enables technical authoring teams to convert content from source formats including FrameMaker and Word to XML DITA or AuthorBridge, our web-based XML editor which provides subject matter experts with a Guided & Fluid authoring experience without requiring any knowledge of XML or DITA.

We’re pleased to have been selected to make the following presentations at LavaCon Portland – be sure to add them to your schedule!

Collaborative Authoring for Technical Authors and SMEs
Patrick Baker, VP Development & Professional Services

Abstract | When technical authors are working in structured authoring formats such as DITA, collecting and reviewing contributions from SME team members can quickly become a difficult problem to manage. SMEs typically want to continue authoring in Word, and understandably don’t want to learn about XML. So is it just a matter of providing an intuitive, Word-like authoring environment for SMEs, or is there more to it than that?

Reusing Your Reuse: How to Keep the Reuse You Have When You Move to DITA
Helen St. Denis, Conversion Services Manager

Abstract | You are moving to DITA, but you’ve already got reuse happening in your legacy format. Reuse mechanisms don’t usually match DITA’s. How can you keep the added value of content reuse when you move the content to the new format?
