XML Editor Customization

Authoring can mean many things, but it is often confused for creating documents, writing technical content, or something as simple as filling out a form. The role of authoring or ownership of the content can span across numerous departments within a company, not to mention across different countries – in different languages.

One day we asked ourselves, why not create a centralized hub where all end-users can author content from the convenience of one application? We have avoided the common pitfalls that undermine other authoring applications to create a fully customizable authoring workflow- complete with search and storage capabilities. From the convenience of one application, content is dynamically delivered to print, web, eBook and mobile.

Customizations to an authoring environment can help improve the efficiency of your system by making repetitive tasks easier to perform or by giving your authors more control over their content. Dakota offers configurations specifically designed for DITA, S1000D, SPL and other selected industry content standards. Alternatively, the XML editing tool can also be configured to use a proprietary DTD or schema. The editing user interface is highly customizable and capable of supporting functional as well as the look and feel requirements of any user community.

Content Publishing Solutions

In today's business environment, corporations are continually looking to reduce the costs associated with their publishing operations.

In fact, a wide variety of organizations are faced with the same technical and business issues that commercial publishers face as they have to distribute a large volume of technical publications, marketing material or legal documents. This situation is complicated by the increasing demands to coordinate the online and print publication effort. Fortunately, the state of publishing technology has advanced greatly during the last few years creating many options for companies looking to automate their enterprise publishing operations.
