Like a box of pralines: you never know what you’ll get with machine translation output… AI has become an indispensable part of the translation industry, as it promises to save time and increase efficiency. Our blog post shows you how to use machine translation in just 3 steps.
It is the responsibility of technical writers to not only produce exemplary minimalistic pieces of text, but to also foster quality localization. I am now eager to recommend to novice fellow writers my top 6 rules for translation facilitation:
Interview with Dr. Stephan Sigg
To answer our questions about the future, such as what is possible or when will we be living in a world of ubiquitous computing, we have to ask those who are sitting and working next to these future technologies, like Dr. Stephan Sigg.
Let´s dive deeper and take the opportunity to talk with him and try to get closer to our questions.
When you hear about iiRDS for the first time, it will probably seem quite complicated – it was the same for me. So to understand it better, let’s strip it down to a machine everybody knows from everyday use: Why not use a coffee machine in order to explain the highly technical standard?
At the Information Energy Day at tcworld in Suttgart, the level of exchanges between attendees and speakers demonstrates that chatbots are indeed the technology that a lot of companies are trying to embrace. It also confirmed that professionals from the techcomm world have a key role to play alongside the technologists putting them together.
The “D” in DITA stands for “Darwin”, underscoring the fact that the XML standard has evolution built into its design. That evolution continues, with several new offerings expected soon from the OASIS Technical Committee in charge of the standard, including the various flavors of Lightweight DITA, multimedia extensions to DITA 1.3, and the upcoming DITA 2.0 standard.
It seems likely that artificial intelligence (AI) and AI-driven chatbots will play a key role in helping users in the future. So what does this mean for technical communicators and for User Assistance? In this article Ellis Pratt gives an insight into:
- What are Chatbots?
- Making a Chatbot
- What Does This Mean for Technical Communicators and for User Assistance?

Using semantic wikis and information models which map relationships between entities in our content, we can amplify the intelligence of our users and our products – the UAreloaded conference showed us how…
What do you think about reviews when you are submitting documentation changes in a code repository? How do you maintain quality and think about levels of editing while working on documentation in a code repository? Here are some ideas…

We can say that Information 4.0 or smart content is the new era of information. But what does it mean in practice? Why make use of it? What is its value? These questions will be answered in our practice example.
Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT) have changed technical documentation. Users now read small chunks of information that match their context, task, or role. Instead of classical documentation, we now need information that is modular, neutral with respect to format, and accessible via metadata and full-text search…
