TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.

** Adobe 5-part eSeminars Series: Find Out How to Write XSLT Statements for
XML to XML Transformations*
** Release Your Inner Creative – Become a Writer for TechWhirl *
** Learn How Doc-To-Help Works in Five Lunch Breaks*
** Latest articles, news and events from Tech Writer Today Magazine*
One of the advantages of using XML as a source file format is that it’s
application-independent. Some of the other advantages include easy
reusability and language translation cost reductions. Very little has been
written about XML to XML Transformations, although there are some books
that outline how to do XML to HTML transformations. This series of
eSeminars is intended to fill that gap.
Did you know that the one of the biggest advantages of XML is that you can
transform your source content with very quick and easy-to-write XSLT
statements? FrameMaker can apply an XSLT transform on ‘Open’ and ‘Save’.
The possibilities are endless if you know the basics of “how to” write XSLT
for XML to XML transforms. You can use attributes to automatically apply
Conditional Tag processing instructions. You can build TOC’s at the top of
each chapter without having to do it manually with cross references. And
there are several other creative uses as well.
The problem used to be that you either had to have an XSLT developer on
staff or outsource the requirement. With your imagination, creativity and
the knowledge gathered through this webinar series – your possibilities are
nearly endless, with staff who don’t have highly developed programming
Join Tom Aldous, Director of Business Development and Evangelism for
Adobe’s Tech Comm business, for an interactive and engaging webinar – the 1st
/ 2nd/ 3rd / 4th /5th webinar in a 5-part series . Tom will start off with
the basics as a foundation. And soon enough, Tom will be having you
building your own XSL transforms to resolve complex and time-consuming
issues, automate processes and multiply productivity.
*Release Your Inner Creative – Become a Writer for TechWhirl *
The friendly, lovable, huggable, uh, friendly folks at TechWhirl are

other writers have family.
It’s an exciting time at TechWhirl as we strive to cover the art of
technical communication. Interested? We have next month’s editorial
meetings this week so it’s a great time to see what’s happening.
*Learn How Doc-To-Help Works in Five Lunch Breaks*
Learning how new tools work can be an intimidating task. We all are busy.
We all have deadlines. There never seems to be time to look at new things.
With that in mind, Doc-To-Help is rolling out a new tutorial series that is
designed to give you a fundamental understanding of how Doc-To-Help works
in five short, self-paced lessons. The first release includes two versions:
one for those who want to use Microsoft Word as a source and another for
those who want to use Doc-To-Help’s built-in editor.
