If you’re planning to move to collaborative structured authoring or you’re trying to find your way with your DITA implementation then this session is for you. A 2017 survey found that nearly 2/3’s of DITA practitioners were facing challenges with their DITA implementation. This session addresses typical problem areas across skills development, technology, and management practices.
This use case takes you through the content journey of a 60-year old small company with a new -experienced- tech writer, searching for a reuse solution. The starting point was the Atlanta 2013 STC Summit where the initial goal was to find out if DITA was the answer. In this particular case, it was… to stay in Word using SmartDocs. Johanne discovered she could reuse 70% and sometimes build whole manuals in 2 days. This use case also shows quickly what kind of problems need to be addressed when doing documentation in French and English with variables and snippets.
