FREE SDL AuthorAssistant for Adobe FrameMaker 9 users

UPDATE: Click here for the Webinar Recording.

Over the last year, we have been working with the great folks at SDL, the world leader in Global Information Management, on a partnership where our Adobe FrameMaker 9 customers would get SDL’s AuthorAssistant client absolutely free, making this yet another reason for exiting users to migrate to the latest version of FrameMaker, and for new users to join the Adobe family.

I’d like to add AuthorAssistant to the list of reasons why I would recommend users of the Technical Communication Suite 2 start in FrameMaker as their single-source authoring tool, where you do you Authoring and now Linguistic checks, create pristine Print and PDF, XML and DITA, and then use RoboHelp for everything Online Publishing, including creating Adobe AIR-based Help.

SDL AuthorAssistant enables consistency of terminology, style and linguistic best practices, as well as ensuring the reuse of previously written and translated content.

  • SDL AuthorAssistant empowers technical authors to improve the quality of their content, ensure adherence to style guide rules and maintain consistency of terminology

  • Out-of-the-box, SDL AuthorAssistant automates many of the quality-checking processes that normally require human resources, resulting in greater productivity, higher quality and lower costs

  • SDL AuthorAssistant checks against previously translated content, so that companies with global audiences can improve content reuse and reduce the downstream costs of localizing content

  • SDL AuthorAssistant is the client software component of SDL Global Authoring Management System (SDL Global AMS) and is fully functional for desktop deployment
