eSeminar Hosted By Adobe and presented by Tom Aldous of Acrolinx

Date – April 10, 2013

In our previous eSeminar, “The Evolution of Technical Communication Processes”, we talked about the next megatrend on the horizon.  Now it’s time to apply these concepts firsthand and fully realize the power of information quality control within one of the most powerful desktop publishing environments available today. Witness a powerful demonstration of how Acrolinx can enhance FrameMaker content far beyond where you thought it could go!

Content is king, as we all know, but many of those in the technical writing industry lack the means to truly prioritize their content. As a result, errors can escape the notice of even the most well-intentioned writers and editors. With Acrolinx, we’ll show you how to tighten your writing skills and nip these problems in the bud – from basic spelling and grammar errors, to more industry-specific problems like the use of deprecated terminology, branding violations, and ambiguous/superfluous phrases and vocabulary.  We’ll also show you how Acrolinx optimizes content reuse for purposes of consistency and localization/translation.

Former Adobe Director – Business Development and Evangelism, Thomas Aldous, now Sr. Vice President, shares his perspective on where content is going. Having worked with DITA/XML and FrameMaker for years, Tom now has expanded his vision into how to optimize content and make it more useable. In his own words:

“In the couple of decades that I have been involved in the Technical Communications industry, there has been a very interesting migration of processes and workflows.

At first, simply creating our content in a word processor was a huge productivity enhancer. We then evolved further by creating our content in standardized templates in a desktop publishing system. Lately, consumers have adopted and adapted to a mobile content interactive experience using their new tablets and smart phones.

Single sourcing content to these multiple devices in an automated fashion is the current “holy grail”, but which approach is best? The current question that is begging to be asked is, so what is next?”

Knowing Tom, we can expect some highly original examples, images and useful metaphors for workflows that you probably have never thought of before. Be sure to attend this event, which is a precursor to an actual live demonstration of a dynamic solution, later in April.
