This webinar describes DITA implementation plans designed for global product support. Learn about the kinds of problems faced by corporations as diverse as Ford, Emirates Airlines, and Disney Corporation. Any size of company can benefit from DITA and a minimalist approach to multilingual documentation.

XMetaL Author Enterprise from JustSystems is an XML editor with an interface familiar to anyone who can use a word processor, so getting up to speed is a matter of a couple of hours, not a couple of months. XMetaL Author Enterprise provides an out-of-the-box fully DITA-compliant solution designed for non-technical users.

Controlled English is a minimalist approach to user documents that follows the lead of DITA. Learn how XMetaL Author creates the structure and how Controlled English adds the simplification and consistency of terminology. To quote the famous Walt Disney lyric, "it's a <b>small world</b>".

Koala’s Modulux product is a lightweight topic repository that includes automatic version control, archive and permission management. Closely integrated with XMetaL Author, Modulux provides an automatic document manifest with an easy "find where used" search feature. And to meet globalisation demands, technical information can now be delivered by Koala’s Mobile4Docs directly to mobile devices.

The webinar provides an action packed 45 minutes of valuable information about DITA with real world examples, “how it’s done” templates, and action-plan frameworks.
