Customizing Structured FrameMaker for Localization
This is the first webinar as part of ENLASO's newly created Consulting and Training Solutions Division. “Customizing Structured FrameMaker for Localization” features Maxwell Hoffmann, Manager of Consulting and Training Solutions at ENLASO, and presents an excellent opportunity for attendees to learn about the localization process and the strengths of FrameMaker in the publishing phase of localization. Hoffmann will provide general tips for template management and will be demonstrating some project-specific FrameMaker plug-ins that ENLASO has developed to:
- single source formatting: localize a "single source" template, eliminating the need for one template per target language,
- automatically create structured book and chapter relative-Tables of Contents, with considerable time reduction (10 minutes reduced to one minute),
- find and fix orphans after text expansion,
- alphabetize translated glossaries, and
- generate correct PDF bookmarks in unsupported languages like Greek and Russian.
Nearly 75% of document content localization at ENLASO is in FrameMaker, the market leader in high volume, scalable technical documentation. Hoffmann is drawing from several years of publishing challenging, multi-lingual projects to share some highly innovative solutions that were developed to dramatically automate multi-lingual FrameMaker publishing.
Although there are many benefits to saving documents in XML format, structured FrameMaker adds a host of benefits in terms of helping automate formatting and a number of publishing steps. Several benefits of containing elements and meta-data in structured FrameMaker attributes will be covered in this complimentary webinar.
