“We chose to use MadCap Flare and MadCap Lingo because, to our knowledge, it is the only environment that integrates authoring, translation, and document management. By introducing these integrated software products into our program, we hope to raise awareness of technical communication as a profession among students and graduates, as well as give them the skills to support global companies’ demands for delivering software documentation in multiple languages.”
