Unleash the Full Potential of Your Technical Content

Flare offers a comprehensive suite of features designed specifically to streamline the technical writing process. Let's explore some of the key features that make Flare the go-to software for technical writers.

Flare's single-source publishing capabilities allow you to create content once and publish it across multiple websites, platforms, and formats. Say goodbye to redundant work and embrace efficiency.

Effortless Migration and Maximum Reusability

Importing content is a breeze with MadCap Flare. Whether you have legacy content in formats like Microsoft Word, Atlassian Confluence, Adobe RoboHelp and FrameMaker, or Author-It, Flare offers the industry's easiest and most advanced import capabilities. With a simple drag-and-drop workflow and a powerful XML Editor, Flare allows you to author content in a familiar WYSIWYG interface. Step-by-step import wizards provide advanced options to customize your import, giving you added control and flexibility to reuse your legacy content.

Embrace Topic-Based Authoring and Single-Source Publishing

Flare revolutionizes the authoring process with its topic-based approach. Traditional authoring methods often involve handling multiple tasks simultaneously, such as writing content, embedding formatting, and defining the document's scope. With Flare, authors take a modular approach, creating granular content called topics. Topics can be easily reused in various formats, allowing for efficient single-source publishing. Say goodbye to the limitations of the traditional approach and embrace Flare's flexible and streamlined authoring capabilities.

Thanks to Flare, we’re able to create and deliver content in one place instead of using two different tools, which has allowed us to save a tremendous amount of time.

Enhance Content Review and Collaboration

Collaboration and content review are essential in the content creation journey. Flare offers robust features to facilitate efficient review cycles. With Flare, you can easily share your content with reviewers, gather feedback, and manage the iterative process seamlessly. By providing a centralized platform for collaboration, Flare enables teams to work together efficiently, ensuring high-quality and accurate content.

Simplify Translation Workflows to Localize Your Content

In an increasingly globalized world, translation is a critical aspect of content creation. Flare simplifies the translation process by offering seamless integration with translation management systems. You can easily export content for translation, track translation progress, and import the translated content back into Flare. This streamlines the localization workflow and ensures consistency across multiple languages.

MadCap's software is so tightly integrated. Everything we learned in Flare, we have been able to apply to MadCap Lingo and Analyzer. It's saved us a lot of time. We like the reusable snippets, cross references and links in Flare, and we love MadCap Lingo's integration with the Google® translation service. All of these features make it so much easier to create and translate our documentation than we ever imagined.
