Our Presenter:

Helen St. Denis | Conversion Services Manager, Stilo

Webinar Description:

One of the things authors love about Microsoft Word is that it’s easy to make your content look just the way you want it. This does not always lend itself to a straightforward conversion to XML. We’ll show you how we leverage the visual cues in the document to discern the implicit structure of the content, so that you can derive good, useful DITA.

Don’t worry if you can’t make the scheduled time, we’ll be sharing the recording with everyone who registers following the live broadcast.

“Working with Migrate has been successful, rewarding and fun for our Technical Writing Department. For the last 3 years we have used the Stilo tool to move our library of FrameMaker documents from DocBook to DITA XML format. Using Migrate allowed us to take our time and focus on priority documents that needed to be quickly moved into DITA and work on lower priority documents as time permitted. This allowed time to learn, with Stilo support, to use Migrate to pass in new content and metadata and restructure our documents as they were converted to DITA. This process worked well and met our needs.”

Stilo has helped Microchip to migrate hundreds of FrameMaker and Word files to DITA. Our content has semiconductor specific information elements and our many product groups have followed the different templates to various degrees. Even with this complexity, Stilo’s Migrate portal has made it possible to migrate our content with a minimum of manual work. Stilo’s support is some of the best we have experienced.

“We had 1000s of pages of corrupted content oil and gas manuals to migrate into .xml and a very small budget to work with. We used Stilo conversion services to migrate the content as a batch process. Their conversion server was powerful, customizable, and consistent. It enable us to finish the job quickly without impacting our budget. Helen was super helpful and easy to work with.”

“We used Migrate for a small project to convert an 800 page document from FrameMaker to DITA. The output we received was just beautiful – to get our content back so quickly and in such a polished state was fantastic, better than I ever thought possible.”

“Unlike conventional conversion services, Migrate gives technical authors hands-on control over how and when they convert their content. Documents can be converted in a matter of minutes, thus avoiding the traditional content freeze – a definite plus for ST which has a large quantity of content to convert.”
