Webinar – Squeeze the maximum value from your terminology

Bluestream Database Software Corp.—a provider of DITA-enabled Component Content Management System (CCMS) solutions—announced today the presentation of an upcoming webinar from Bluestream CTO Jim Tivy on Monday, May 20.

In “How to squeeze the maximum value from your terminology,” Jim will explore the use of terminology for authors and readers showing how DITA and DITA-enabled tools can exploit terminology to its fullest potential.

In discourse, not all words are created equal: certain words are central to understanding a subject and other words are not. The organization and consistent use of these important terms, the terminology, is essential to clear communication. Fundamentally, planned and controlled terminology is used by authors in writing and editing, and it is further used by readers searching in glossaries and indexes. Writing tools must make the tasks of authors easy. For example, current DITA writing tools must provide access to terminology lists. Furthermore, search and browse systems in a CMS or online Knowledgebase must incorporate terminology to make content quickly findable and understandable for authors and readers.

The webinar is part of the Silicon Valley DITA Interest Group (SVDIG) meeting series. For more information and to register, visit the SVDIG website.
