AuthorBridge — The key ingredient to making DITA authoring digestible for SMEs

For most non-professional content experts, authoring rich semantic content is considered too difficult to digest. The prospect of learning DITA is something they have little or no appetite for, they typically want to continue authoring in Word, or a Word-like authoring environment, and understandably don’t want to learn about XML.

So how can you tempt your SMEs to sample the delights of DITA authoring? The key ingredient is AuthorBridge from Stilo.

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.

Join us for this technology test kitchen session and we’ll demonstrate some of the key ingredients that go into making AuthorBridge the crème de la crème of SME DITA authoring tools.

• ‘Word-like’ guided authoring
