How to Get Started with Topic-Based Authoring

Kai Weber


Writing documentation in stand-alone modules makes sense - but is it right for you? And how do you get there? This webinar gives you a hand when you're wondering how to go "topic-based". There'll be a roadmap template which you can tweak to your needs. We'll go through the individual stages of the transition and talk about what can go wrong and how to ensure you'll succeed. And we'll take time to address any questions you may have, so you can get answers that fit your situation.
