RoboHelp projects are typically quite large. Too large for manual conversion to be feasible. But there’s also generally a lot more to your RoboHelp content than just the text. What about build tags, for example, for multi-channel publishing? Can your folder structure be maintained? What about snippets, can we retain the reuse there? These are the sorts of questions we are frequently asked. We’ll show you how we answer these and more.

Whether your legacy content is in structured or unstructured FrameMaker, there’s a lot more to this content than just the words on the page. You may have conditional text, variables, or text insets, that allow you to reuse content. You may have index terms, cross references and footnotes. You want to be able to retain the usefulness of these features, and even to enrich the content in other ways, as part of your conversion process, rather than after the fact. We’ll show you how you can do just that with Stilo Migrate.

Webinar Description:

You are using DITA for your technical documentation and would like to streamline the involvement of your subject matter experts with regards to content creation and verification. Unfortunately, DITA makes this a challenge in many ways. It is topic-based and requires maps to pull topics into documents. It has ways of conditionalizing content to support document variants, and it pulls content from shared libraries to minimize duplication. These are all great features, but can be confusing for the SME. In this webinar, we’ll show you how AuthorBridge helps SMEs cope with this complexity, and makes the authoring experience more straightforward. We’ll also demonstrate features such as review comments and change tracking, which support collaborating with SMEs.

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.

WEBINAR | Converting Complex Table Structures to DITA XML

Webinar Description:

Converting tables to XML can be a challenge. We use tables to represent tabular information, sometimes in a complex way. But we also sometimes use them to lay out content on a page in a way that makes it easier for the reader to understand the purpose of the content. So while we often need to convert complex tables with merged cells, we also often need to convert the tables to something completely different, while still preserving the context that conveys part of the meaning of the words. Fortunately we can do these types of conversions automatically, using Stilo’s Migrate.
