We are excited to announce the immediate availability of Technical Communication Suite 5. TCS5 is the next generation of Adobe’s complete single-source authoring and multi-device publishing toolkit for technical writers, help and policy authors, and instructional designers. All major components of the suite have been updated, including Adobe FrameMaker 12 and Adobe RoboHelp 11. Also, Adobe FrameMaker XML Author 12, a new streamlined editing solution with best-in-class XML/DITA and DTD support, provides the occasional contributor or subject matter expert with an inexpensive and easy-to-use, yet powerful solution to participate in the content creation process. Adobe FrameMaker Publishing Server 12, an enterprise software solution for automated multichannel publishing, now offers remote web browser based publishing and dashboard-driven task monitoring.
Powerful tools like Adobe Captivate 7, Adobe Presenter 9, Adobe FrameMaker Publishing Server 12, and Adobe Acrobat XI Pro round out the suite. Get all the details, links and assets here.
We’re excited to announce the next release of Adobe’s end-to-end suite for technical communicators –Adobe Technical Communication Suite 3. The suite lets technical writers, help authors and instructional designers author, enrich, manage, review and “single-click” publish technical information in multiple languages and formats, and to multiple devices.
Included with this release are completely updated versions of the core products –Adobe FrameMaker 10 (template-based authoring/publishing) and Adobe RoboHelp 9 (help and knowledgebase authoring/publishing). The suite is rounded out with Adobe Captivate 5, Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Adobe Acrobat X Pro.
The team has been working hard to incorporate compelling customer feedback. We’ve heard time and again that our customers’ end users are demanding richer, more dynamic and increasingly interactive content. To that end, Technical Communication Suite 3 offers several workflow improvements and usability enhancements. Authors can easily include 3D models, training demos and simulations in their projects and build in access to external sources such as Google search results, blogs, wikis and forums. The software now supports more than 45 video and audio formats and outputs comment- and rating-enabled documentation, driving engagement by encouraging response.
Significantly improved, Technical Communication 3 will help end the long reign of static documentation – our tools are building the next generation of content that will ultimately solve consumer problems.
