DITA InPrint: Creating Well-Designed Technical Documentation

Presented by

Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and Val Swisher of Content Rules with Tim Grantham of Tengwar Systems

About this talk

Technical documents are often the ugly sibling of marketing and corporate communications. Written and produced by staff who typically have no training (or budget) for design, these crude-looking publications not only undermine the carefully crafted image created by the marketing team, they make it harder for customers to actually read and understand the valuable information they contain. The content coming out of the technical communication department is, more often than not, comprised of overcrowded pages loaded with eye-glazing graphics, incomprehensible typefaces, useless headings, bad pagination, and tiresome tables. But, it doesn't have to be this way. Even if you use DITA. Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and Val Swisher, CEO of Content Rules, for this free, one-hour webinar featuring XML design specialist, Tim Grantham, founder of Tengwar Systems. Tim will discuss the main reasons technical documentation is so ugly and reveal tips and tricks for making improvements that will delight your customers. He will also discuss his first software product, DITA InPrint™, which enables marketing and documentation teams to get great-looking outputs from DITA XML, quickly and easily, without having to learn to code or to hire programmers.
