Web-based DITA editing for subject matter experts - raising the bar ... again

Stilo announces version 3 of AuthorBridge with a live demo broadcast Jan 29, 2019.

Since its inception, AuthorBridge has provided SMEs with a truly unique guided and fluid authoring experience. Specifically designed for users with no knowledge of DITA or XML, it has helped organizations rapidly roll out DITA authoring to non-ID professionals in marketing, engineering, training and support.

To do this well requires sophisticated DITA content processing 'under the hood' and this is where AuthorBridge excels.

  • change tracking for text and structural changes
  • review comments
