*Upcoming Webinars*

April 29, 2PM PDT AdobeTCS webinar: "HYPERWRITE Sess 2) The importance of
metadata"

Register at: http://adobe.ly/12tRTgx

Partly due to the advent of XML, many parts of the documentation process
can now be automated. And one of the keys to accurate “processing” and
“transforming” of text is metadata. Metadata is data about data.
Information that describes or classifies information. Even if we've never
used the term "metadata" before, we've actually know it well. An index is
metadata. It helps describes the information, but it is not part of the
core information itself. When we look deeper, we find metadata in document
styling, in semantic mark-up, in SEO, in translation, in content management
systems, and even in file names. By improving our knowledge and application
of metadata, we can raise the quality of our documents.

About the Presenter: Based in Melbourne, Australia, Dr Tony Self
(@hyperwrite) has over 30 years of experience as a technical communicator.
For over 20 years, Tony has worked in the areas of online help systems,
computer-based training, and XML documents. In 1993, he founded HyperWrite,
a company providing training and consultancy in structured authoring, Help
systems, DITA, and technology strategy. Tony completed his PhD in semantic
mark-up languages in 2011, and his book The DITA Style Guide was published
in the same year. He is a member of the OASIS DITA Technical Committee (and
chair of the DITA Help Subcommittee), is an adjunct teaching fellow at
Swinburne University, and is the Director of Training for TCTrainNet, a
training initiative of tekom, the German professional association for
technical communicators.

April 30 at 10AM PDT, AdobeTCS webinar: "Optimizing your RoboHelp content
for best SEO results"

Register at: http://adobe.ly/10tp2WI

RoboHelp 10 swiftly creates beautiful WebHelp, HTML5 or other types of web
and Help files. In nearly all cases, your users are going to use search to
locate desired content. In some cases, your RoboHelp published results may
allow search to go outside of your files and bring up results from other
website. Obviously, you would not want information from a competitor’s
website to appear at the top of the list. Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
is a high priority for the success of your projects.

Fortunately, RoboHelp 10 provides a number of easy-to-use tools to help
refine and control the search experience for your users. In this session
you will see live examples on how to use a variety of tools and techniques,
including:

== Metadata menu to define search keywords

== Linguistic synonyms

== Stop lists

Join our special guest, RoboHelp expert Willam van Weelden, for this
dynamic presentation, which will be filled with many short, simple, live
examples. Willam van Weelden is from Amsterdam and expert in CSS3 design
and the new HTML5 standards. (www.wvanweelden.eu)

May 2 at 3:00 PM PDT AdobeTCS webinar:

"Database Publishing with FrameMaker 11 – When your print color catalogue
is too important to give up"

Register at: http://adobe.ly/WWfS5x

A classic customer tale – The company has taken the leap to move their
product data into an online stores system, so that their customers can
order their products online. Even though customers are ordering online,
they still expect to receive their 600 color page, 12,000 product catalogue
in print.

Marketing Team requirements:

== Must re-use content from their proprietary stores system for the print
catalogue

== Desire to have the print catalogue produced automatically

== Must be able to produce high quality color PDF’s for print publishing





Desktop Publishing Team requirements:



== System must be able to be easy for desktop publishing staff to use.

== Multiple users (normally four) must be able to work on the catalogue at
the same time during catalogue preparation.

== User may need to tweak content, styles and advertising randomly, just
before they go to print.

== Must be able to generate accurate Catalogue and Section level TOC’s
based on last second changes.

== Must be able to generate an accurate Parts Index for the entire
Catalogue.

Re-using the data that comes out of the stores database, Tammy will
demonstrate how by converting database fields into useful well-formed XML
that allows Adobe FrameMaker 11 to do what it does best, produce a robust
600 page catalogue ready for print.

About the Presenter: Tammy Halter is the founder and sole Director of
Absolute Data Group, with over 17 years' experience in the information
technology field; including SGML/XML publishing, S1000D Interactive
Electronic Technical Manual (IETM) and IETP delivery, combined with
document management experience with various solution companies. Tammy has
been a technical trainer, support engineer and project manager for several
SGML software Distributors over the years, and was the Frame Product
Engineer, Asia Pacific & Latin America for Adobe Systems in 1997. Tammy is
a winner of numerous awards in the industry and a speaker at several
industry programs
