Test your DITA content and processes for global-readiness

Presentation Abstract

Chances are the list of languages your DITA content is being translated into is on the rise. And new languages mean more constraints, more traps that complicate localization. How about running a localization Proof Of Concept?

  • When and why you run a POC
  • Its scope
  • Its value-added and outputs

“I interviewed some Language Service Providers to translate our DITA content. WhP‘s Proof of Concept convinced me that their DITA-specific solution is the most advanced I could find. When I saw that they built a DITA layer on top of their translation management system, I understood why they came so highly recommended by people I trust.” Megan Gilhooly, Director of Information Experience, Ping (now at Amazon)

What can attendees expect to learn?

You will be able to see where your DITA content and processes stand in terms of global-readiness, as well as get advice on the improvements you can make.
