Translating your content into other languages is one of the greatest challenges in the technical communication process. We can meet these challenges by combining single-sourcing and localization to publish variations of our content in multiple formats. When we do this, the benefits multiply. However, localizing a single-sourcing system has challenges and requires proactive planning for features like variables, conditionals, snippets, formatting, and responsive design. Come to this session and learn how to prepare content to use these features. We'll also explore tools, best practices, plus tips and tricks for managing your localization projects.
