How to prepare your content for conversion to DITA

Presented by: Helen St. Denis, Conversion Services Manager | Stilo International

Wednesday, May 25, 2016 | 9am PDT | 12noon EDT | 5pm BST


So, the decision is made to implement DITA and the content audit is done, now you need to get your content into DITA. So, what do you really need to do to your content before you start the conversion process? Maybe not as much as you may think! 

In this webinar we'll discuss ... 

  • What is the most useful thing to do pre-conversion?
  • What kind of things influence what else you might want to do pre-conversion?
  • What are the common trouble areas in the different source formats?
  • What is best left for post-conversion?  

We plan to make this webinar as relevant as possible for attendees. As part of the webinar registration you will be asked a number of questions relating to content conversion, please do tell us what source formats you are converting from and specifically what challenges you are currently experiencing with converting your content to DITA - and we will do our best to address them in the webinar.
