Event Details

Session presented in English

We are seeing a heavy trend toward DITA. But sometimes DITA, rather than breaking silos, might just create one more. It is possible to stay in Word with SmartDocs and keep exchanging files with other colleagues who do not write all day for a living. I would like to talk to you about conditions that triggered such a choice, how I convinced my boss (a programmer), and how it was easy to convert. I will describe the operation of the snippets, variables and conditional texts, the challenges of working in two languages with variables, and what remains to be done.
