      Hi Folks,

      At last month's Silicon Valley DITA Interest Group meeting we
      briefly touched on an SDL product called AuthorAssistant. We asked
      for a show of hands of those who might be interested in seeing a
      demo of AuthorAssistant and the response was nearly unanimous.
      Since I belong to the Central Texas Users Group, I wanted to share
      the same information with you.

      We're sponsoring a WebEx conference on AuthorAssistant later this

      We've included additional info below.

      To refresh: Author Assistant enables content authors to
      automatically check to see if their writing complies with
      organizational standards and style guides. It also enables authors
      to "see" already translated/approved content and make adjustments to
      reflect existing translations. Clients experience:
      * immediate savings in their overall translation costs
      * faster editing process in general, and
      * a new level of consistency to their overall authoring.

      Definitely feel free to forward this to appropriate folks throughout
      your organizations.

      Best Wishes,

      *Why is style so important in communicating a clear message to
      different audiences?
      *How can your organization ensure the brand is represented correctly
      and consistently?
      *How can you leverage style guide rules, terminology and previously
      written and translated content to improve the quality of content?

      Organizations today need to work hard to create and maintain a well-
      recognized and consistent brand. And yet, with contributors being
      dispersed around the world, the increase in off-shoring and the
      natural human diversity in style preference, there are many
      challenges associated with adhering to a consistent style across an

      Hear from the Chicago Manual of Style, Avaya and SDL on the
      importance of style in global communications and in achieving a
      globally consistent brand. Also discover how automation can improve
      the consistency of style and terminology in content and to better
      prepare content for global audiences.
