ANNOUNCE: Welcome Back Adobe, as a Platinum TECHWR-L Sponsor

Adobe is back and in style, as a Platinum Sponsor for TECHWR-L.
Welcome back, thank you, and congratulations!

Adobe revolutionizes how the world engages with ideas and information.
Our award-winning software and technologies have set the standard for
communication and collaboration for more than 25 years, bringing vital
and engaging experiences to people across media and to every screen in
their lives, at work and at play. One such best-in-class offering is
Adobe® Technical Communication Suite 2.5 software. It is one of the
most preferred software applications in the technical communication
industry, designed to provide optimal convenience and ease of use.

The latest release of Adobe Technical Communication Suite allows
authors to take advantage of a single, integrated toolset with which
they can not only author and repurpose standards-compliant content,
but also deliver it easily in multiple formats across multiple devices
and platforms. Content can be made engaging and interactive through
video for Adobe Flash®, 3D models, and Adobe Captivate® 5 demos. The
task of creating help databases has traditionally been complex, but
the inclusion of Adobe RoboHelp® 8 allows authors to easily publish
instructional information, technical content, and user assistance
systems in multiple languages and formats. With enhanced review and
collaboration features, Technical Communication Suite 2.5 empowers
technical writers to overcome the challenge of interacting with
subject matter experts in different locations. Content can be

NEW RELEASE: MADCAP LINGO VERSION 4

MadCap Software is pleased to announce the release of MadCap Lingo
Version 4, adding significant improvements to usability and workflow
as well as new features and functionality. Version 4.0 introduces,
among others, a new alignment utility, PowerPoint support, an improved
Project Packager tool, as well as a completely redesigned translation
editor for greater ease-of-use.

MadCap Lingo is ideal for technical communicators involved in
translation and localization projects. Whether using MadCap Flare or
other documentation tools such as Word or FrameMaker, MadCap Lingo
provides benefits for both authors and translators with its
streamlined workflow, advanced reporting functionality, and full
Translation Memory eXchange support.

Some of the new Version 4.0 features include:

- New MadCap Align Utility
Translators can now create an alignment
project and manually align files and segments as needed. MadCap Align,
which replaces the old Align Project feature in MadCap Lingo
provides two benefits. A more intuitive workflow with a clear
separation between the translation and alignment processes. Greater
flexibility, since translators can continue to work within MadCap
Align even when the MadCap Lingo software is closed.

- PowerPoint Translation
Now point-and-click on PowerPoint files to
import them and begin translation. Support for import and translation
of .ppt and .pptx files.

- Project Packager Bundle Improvements and Flexibility
Authors now can choose specific files for translation, so
translators receive only files that need attention. The selected
filesalong with the translation memoryare placed in a ZIP file
to send to the translator.

Redesigned Translation Editor to Provide Greater Ease-of-Use
* One editor type now supports all file types, creating a consistent
experience.
* Separate Translation and Preview modes simplify the localization
process. Translation only occurs in Translation mode, which has a gr
id
view. Preview mode provides a visual view of how the localized conte
nt
will appear when published. A button in the Translation Editor tool
bar
lets users quickly switch between the two modes.
* Color-coded backgrounds provide a quick visual cue on status of
segments. They include white (not translated), gray
(translated/confirmed), and red (match exists from TM).
* Translation confirmation is as simple as clicking on a check mark
button, which inserts the translation and moves the focus to the nex
t
segment in the file. Pressing Enter on the keyboard does the same
thing.
* Updated toolbar provides more intuitive access to translation
functions.
