Presentation takes place at DITA Europe 2008 on November 18th
17 October 2008, Swindon, United Kingdom – Stilo International in conjunction with its customer STMicroelectronics, is preparing to present a frank insight into the real-life challenges and opportunities of adopting the new DITA (Darwin Information Typing Architecture) standard for authoring, producing and delivering technical information. At the upcoming DITA Europe 2008 conference, the two companies will deliver a joint presentation that discloses their experiences in an early European DITA publishing and content migration project. STMicroelectronics is one of the world’s largest semiconductor manufacturers.
The presentation at DITA Europe 2008 will explain the strong business case for DITA at STMicroelectronics and discuss the challenges faced by the project team at key stages including:
* Managing the scope of the DITA project
* Communicating the benefits of DITA internally
* Creating style sheets that met requirements without being over-complicated
* Migrating legacy content from FrameMaker
* Helping authors adjust to the new working practices
As a crucial part of the project, STMicroelectronics is piloting Stilo Migrate, a brand new tool that simplifies the migration of legacy documents to DITA and other XML publishing environments. Initially, the solution allows users to upload Word and FrameMaker documents via the Internet and provides a controlled document conversion workflow with easy-to-follow steps. By using Stilo Migrate, organisations can both reduce the time required for content migration and improve the accuracy of the process.
