Event Details

 

We're all familiar with the benefits of content reuse, but what is the recipe for a good content reuse strategy? Is a CCMS required? And, is content reuse really the magical solution for increasing efficiency and reducing cost in technical communications? In this presentation, I'll share the story of the content reuse strategy I helped to develop for a global team of 10+ technical writers, the decisions that had to be made along the way, the challenges we faced (and still face), and the benefits we have reaped from reducing, reusing, and refocusing.

 

Presenter

Julie Hill headshot   

Julie Hill is a senior technical writer with Harmonic, Inc. After leaving public education nearly five years ago, she joined the team as a junior technical writer, just as the team was transitioning from FrameMaker to DITA. She was tasked with piloting her team's first DITA-based reuse project, and from there pioneered a content reuse strategy. Her responsibilities now include providing training and other support for the team's DITA authoring environment, and managing XSL transformations for PDF and HTML output.

Julie has been an active STC CNY member since joining earlier this year.
