Taking DITA for a Loop — Automating XLIFF Conversions

Taking DITA for a Loop — Automating XLIFF Conversions

Bryan Schnabel’s “DITA-XLIFF Roundtrip” plugins for the DITA Open Toolkit can be used to transform XML source files from the Darwin Information Typing Architecture to a single XLIFF file and back.

The presentation walks the audience through the conversion process, explaining how the plugins are used with DITA Open Toolkit to transform content from one OASIS standard to another, and shows that an open-source toolchain can be used to minimize complexity & vendor lock-in, save time & money, and ensure consistency in DITA localization projects.

Presented at the XLIFF Symposium – FEISGILTT – Localization World in Berlin on June 2, 2015.
