For those of you looking for a more in depth overview of the workflows and capabilities you can accomplish using MadCap Lingo and the new Doc-To-Help import support, we have an upcoming webinar scheduled for Tuesday, September 15th at 8:00 AM PDT.

Using MadCap Lingo to Manage Your Doc-To-Help Localization Workflow

MadCap Doc-To-Help offers rapid authoring and publishing capabilities using Microsoft® Word™ to create online help, policy & procedure guides, eBooks and more. With the addition of Doc-To-Help import support, MadCap Lingo can now be used to significantly improve your translation efficiency and reduce translation costs with translation memory support, terminology management, detailed reporting capabilities and more.

We’ll cover the steps you’ll follow when sending and receiving files for translation, generating quality assurance reports, and creating key translation assets such as a translation memory, which stores translated content for future use.
