ANN: Controlling Help-Specific Features in WebWorks

Apex CoVantage (www.apexcovantage.com) is pleased to invite you
to attend a FREE live webinar "Controlling Help-Specific Features
in WebWorks" on Thursday, January 31st at 11 am EST; 8:00 am PST.

To be truly productive, authors need to be able to select
help-specific features independent of the formatting applied to the
text. This webinar will demonstrate techniques Apex has developed
to accomplish this. Attendees will walk away with a sample WebWorks
project, sample FrameMaker template, and a sample EDD.

To learn more and to register for this free webinar, please visit
https://apexcovantage.webex.com
and click "enroll" to the right of the event title. Thank you.

ANN: MadCap Analyzer, Proactively Suggesting Improvements

MADCAP SOFTWARE LAUNCHES MADCAP ANALYZER, FIRST SOFTWARE TO
PROACTIVELY SUGGEST CONTENT DEVELOPMENT IMPROVEMENTS

If you use Madcap Flare, you need Madcap Analyzer. If you dont
use Flare, youre going to wish you did. Heres why:

Unlike any other application currently available, Analyzer lets
you design and generate reports for problems such as broken or
missing links for your Flare projects. But it goes further than
that, much further. Analyzer also makes suggestions for your
projects, most of which you can change right there in Analyzer.

How easy and powerful is Analyzer? Check it out:

1. Open a Flare project in Analyzer.

2. Immediately see a list of issues and suggestions for
the project.

3. Open the Flare files in Analyzer and fix the identified
problems and make the suggested changes.

Youre done.

Why kinds of issues does Analyzer let you know about? Too many
to list here, but some of the big ones are:

Reports
* Condition tags (undefined, used, unused)
* Context-sensitive Help IDs (unused, duplicate,
topics linked)
* Images (used, unused, topics with images)
* Links (broken, absolute, external, incoming, outgoing)
* TOCs (duplicate items, topics not in TOCs)
* Variables (suggestions, undefined, used, unused)
* Non-XML topics (convert HTML files to XHTML files in a batch)
* And much, much more

Suggestions
* Styles suggestions, including duplicates, undefined, used,
and unused
* Snippet suggestions
* Phrases that should be snippets, including fuzzy match phrases
* Writing structure suggestions
* And many, many more

Theres a number of ways to get Analyzer:
For a limited time, Analyzer is available for $199, a $100
discount from the $299 list price.

If youre a Flare maintenance customer, you pay $99.

If youre a Madpak maintenance plan customer, you get it free.

Or buy the Madpak today and Analyzer is included at no additional
charge.

ANN: MadCap Lingo, Rewriting Rules for Translations

MADCAP SOFTWARE DEBUTS MADCAP LINGO, REWRITES THE RULES FOR
TRANSLATING DOCUMENTATION

The Most Integrated Translation Memory System and Authoring Tool
the Industry Has Ever Seen Eliminates File Transfers Susceptible
to Content and Formatting Corruption

La Jolla, CA, USA January 14, 2008 MadCap Software,
announced the launch of MadCap Lingo, which rewrites the rules
for translating documentation.

MadCap Lingo, an XML-based, fully integrated translation memory
system and authoring tool, eliminates the need for file transfers
in order to complete translation. As a result, documentation and
localization professionals no longer have to risk losing valuable
content and formatting. Instead, document components, such as
tables of content, topics, index keywords, concepts, glossaries,
and variables all remain intact throughout the translation and
localization process, so there is never a need to recreate them.

MadCap Lingo sets new standards for functionality and ease-of-use
in translating content. Key features include:

Translation Memory
* Built-in translation memory system
* Connect with third-party translation memory systems

Side-by-Side Translation Editors
* Topics can be viewed in visual mode or grid mode
* Dedicated editors for index keywords, concepts, TOCs,
* and more

Ensure Project Integrity
* No need to transfer/ship files out of a project
* Keeps all files in context
* No risk of losing files or content
* Topics with changed content are flagged when a new
* version is loaded

Ease of Use
* Speedy keyboard shortcuts for a fast workflow
* Option to translate text using integrated Google service
* File list window which shows exactly which files require
translation
* View and edit multiple topics simultaneously
* And much more
