How to Prepare Your MadCap Flare Project for Localization

Thursday, February 21, 10:00 AM PST / 1:00 PM EST

Presented by: Meinrad Reiterer, Production Manager | MadTranslations


Translating your content into other languages can be a huge challenge, especially when dealing with multiple products and dozens of languages. Due to MadCap Flare’s ability to manage very large documentation sets, documentation projects created with Flare can be highly complex and pose a challenge for translators. This webinar will provide insight into what happens – or should happen – when you send your Flare project off for translation, and what you can do to help your translation vendor deliver fully functional, correctly translated Flare projects.

This webinar is adapted from a presentation originally presented during MadWorld 2018 Prague.

Navigation 101: A Guide to Links in MadCap Flare

Thursday, March 7, 2019, 10 AM PST / 1:00 PM EST

Presented by: Neil Perlin, Certified Flare Trainer and Consultant | Hyper/Word Services


MadCap Flare offers a wide variety of link types. Some types, such as hyperlinks and popups, are common and easy to understand. Others, such as cross-references, dropdowns, expanding links, and togglers, may be unfamiliar. In this webinar, Neil Perlin will take a deep look at the various link types available in Flare, discussing how to create them and how to customize them with CSS. In addition, he'll cover the pros and cons of each type, and the effect on users navigating your content.
