Topic-based and structured authoring offer many advantages, especially with DITA. Many people feel that they must adhere to the “standard” definition of DITA. While this can be the best route in some instances, there are tremendous advantages in DITA Specialization, which can automate a variety of tasks associated with document structure and formatting. Benefits of DITA Specialization can be magnified by the number of target languages that you translate into. This 2-part series will cover first the strategy and planning phases, then show actual live examples of DITA Customization.
Session 1) Modeling DITA Specialization
In this session, we examine the process of analyzing your DITA needs and determining where specialization is most appropriate and potentially the most powerful. Find out how to analyze your content and build the right road map before beginning the specialization process.
This second session will focus on actual working examples of specialized DITA in FrameMaker 11. You will see live documents with relatively simple specialization that enables a variety of transformations to occur automatically.
Your “take-aways” from this series will be (a) determining if DITA Specialization is right for you and (b) how to actually accomplish it. Join Adobe’s Tom Aldous, Director, Global TechComm Business Development and Product Evangelism, as he guides us on this fascinating technical journey. Before joining Adobe, Tom spent over 20 years as a consultant, frequently specializing in complex DITA and XML projects which required specialization for industries ranging from nuclear power to financial.
Find Out How to Write XSLT Statements for XML to XML Transformations in a 5-part eSeminars Series
June 28, 2012 – July 19, 2012 – Recorded

One of the advantages of using XML as a source file format is that it’s application-independent. Some of the other advantages include easy reusability and language translation cost reductions.
Did you know that the biggest advantage of XML is that you can transform your source content with very quick and easy-to-write XSLT statements? FrameMaker can apply an XSLT transform on ‘Open’ and ‘Save’. The possibilities are endless if you know the basics of “how to” write XSLT for XML to XML transforms. You can use attributes to automatically apply Conditional Tag processing instructions. You can build TOC’s at the top of each chapter without having to do it manually with cross references. And there are several other uses.
The problem earlier used to be that you either had to have an XSLT developer on staff or outsource the requirement. With your imagination, creativity and the knowledge gathered through this webinar series – the possibilities are endless.
