Selecting the Right Approach When Converting Legacy Content to DITA (Vendor Showcase)

A session at Society for Technical Communication SUMMIT 2013

Monday 6th May, 2013

2:00pm to 3:00pm (EST)

Presented by Stilo International

When undertaking legacy content conversion, documentation teams have traditionally chosen between using in-house resources or outsourcing the work to external consultants/conversion specialists. Stilo’s Migrate cloud conversion service now provides a radically different approach that combines the best of in-house and outsourced alternatives to help convert DocBook, FrameMaker, Word, InDesign, and RoboHelp documents to DITA in real-time, on-demand. Whether a conversion is 85% or 95% effective makes a massive difference to the amount of manual clean-up that may be required, as well as the corresponding impact on the total project time and costs. A poor conversion can create more problems than it solves. Learn how to find the approach that will work best for you with a live demonstration and review of Migrate.
