Blueprint for Success: Selecting Technologies To Manage Global Content

Are you confused about the many options for managing global content between your content management system, marketing automation platform, and translation technology? And most importantly, are you concerned about the impact on the user experience for both the content manager and in-country reviewer?

Imagine yourself in a work environment where you can focus on everything that matters when managing global content. All the clutter is gone. No cutting and pasting of language content. No emails. No PDF reviews. No quality complaints from your in-country offices. Instead, you give all your attention to developing strategies, new product introductions, and innovating your processes.

Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and my guest, Andrew Lawless, for a free, one-hour webinar designed to help you select the right tools to manage global content efficiently and effectively.

Attendees will learn a technology selection planning exercise that provides complete clarity on how to automate global content production from end-to-end. You'll discover the key solutions for a fully automated localization process from content authoring to translation, in-context review and publishing. Equally important, you will hold in your hands a technology blueprint for success.

  • Oversee Your Outputs: The Personalization Paradox #5 Dec 10 2020 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Val Swisher
    When most companies start to design their personalization strategies, they think about the output. It appears to make perfect sense -- after all, that’s where the personalization happens. But it’s also the reason most personalization strategies fail. You simply cannot provide personalized customer experiences at scale if you start from the end.

    Join Val Swisher, CEO of Content Rules, to learn how to manage your outputs to provide the right content to the right person at the right time.

    In this webinar, you will learn:

    The difference between delivering documents and delivering experiences
    The 3 types of outputs every enterprise should provide
    The role of automation in delivering content
  • Curate Your Components: The Personalization Paradox #4 Recorded: Nov 19 2020 60 mins
    Val Swisher
    Components are where all of the work you’ve done so far to manage your words, sentences, and paragraphs come together to create a customer experience. Only by creating small, reusable content components (and tagging them correctly), can you make sure that only the right pieces of content are delivered to the right person, at the right time.

    Join Val Swisher, CEO of Content Rules, to learn how curating your components can have a big impact on how personalizable your content is.

    In this webinar, you will learn:

    Why componentized content is a requirement for personalization
    The 3 biggest pitfalls of componentized content (and how to avoid them)
    What an enterprise component eco system really looks like
  • Polish Your Paragraphs: The Personalization Paradox #3 Recorded: Sep 17 2020 59 mins

    A paragraph is that combination of words and sentences that give your content its voice. In a world of personalization at scale, any inconsistencies in voice become very apparent to your customers.

    In this webinar, you will learn:

    How voice impacts all content (hint: it’s not just for marketing)

    How to manage voice across the enterprise

  • Using Structured Content to Manage Complex Global Medical Device Content Recorded: Aug 12 2020 64 mins
    Ann Rockley and Val Swisher
    The globalization of medical devices content is very complex. There are numerous changes that must be tracked and used correctly such as units of measure, severity of alerts (warning vs. precaution), use of symbols, regulated statements, brand marks (trademark vs. registered trademark), drug or device names, image changes, Health Authority specific requirements and many more.

    It’s not just a question of language, the language may be the same but there can be multiple permutations based on health authorities, region, and country.

    Most companies track the variations with massive Excel spreadsheets which are time-consuming and error prone. Language service providers may have their own method of tracking these variants and the publishing vendor, responsible for the InDesign files, may have yet another!

    This session provides best practices for managing these complexities identifying how the variants can best be controlled using structured content in content creation, content management, translation, and production.

    Attendees will learn about the need to:

    — Create a structured content strategy
    — Develop a content reuse strategy
    — Create a content management repository that supports these complexities
    — Integrate translation workflows
    — Ensure quality
    — Automate publishing regardless of the language and type of information (e.g., IFU vs package label)

  • Why Companies Fail (And How You Can Succeed) at Personalization Recorded: Jun 18 2020 52 mins
    Val Swisher
    Content personalization - delivering the right content, to the right person, on the right device, at the right time, in the right language - has become a corporate imperative for companies large and small. According to Infosys, 86% of consumers surveyed indicated that personalized content has some impact on what they purchase and 25% said that personalization plays a large role in their purchases.

    And yet, looking at the data, two things stand out: 1) Most companies say that personalizing the customer experience is a critical “must have,” and they have the statistics to back it up. 2) Very few companies believe they are delivering enough personalized content, or deliver it well.

    Join Val Swisher, CEO of Content Rules, to learn about The Personalization Paradox. What’s holding these companies back from their personalization goals? And how can you avoid the pitfalls and make your personalization possible with your own enterprise content?

    In this webinar, you will learn:

    • Why personalized content is imperative to the enterprise
    • Why so many companies fail to deliver
    • The five dimensions of creating personalizable content

  • Holy Trifecta of Global Content Success Recorded: May 30 2018 52 mins
    Val Swisher
    Technical communication professionals revolutionized the publishing world with the introduction of structured writing and intelligent content. By adopting innovative methods, approaches, and content standards, we were able to craft and deliver content to multiple channels quickly, often with reduced effort and cost. And, we’re not done yet.

    When technical content is required for global audiences, intelligent content alone is not enough to tackle the obstacles multilingual content introduces. Combining structured intelligent technical content, terminology management, and translation memory together can solve these challenges. We call this the Holy Trifecta of Intelligent Technical Content. When all three of these are leveraged together, we can produce consistent content that is on-brand, on-message, and easy to read in every language.

    In this session, attendees will learn:

    * A clear description of intelligent content, terminology management, and translation memory

    * An understanding of how they are interrelated and why they are important to technical communication projects

    * A game plan for coordinating all three in order to create intelligent content that works, all the time, on any device, in any language
