online/10 JUNE

This free event is open to everyone interested in learning about DITA.

Data Conversion Laboratory and Ariza Content Solutions are hosting a half-day seminar to help organizations understand the benefits of DITA and how to plan a transition to a DITA-based workflow.


The goal of this seminar is to help organizations identify the barriers to a DITA migration and collectively outline ways to overcome those barriers, creating a clear process to move to a DITA-based content reuse workflow.


At the end of the seminar, all participants will be entered into a raffle to win

  • $1000 DCL dollars to be used toward a Harmonizer analysis

  • Noise-canceling headphones

  • and other special surprises

“My experience with DCL on XML conversion is great! Especially converting non-structured content to DITA. The quality of work is consistently good and the team is very prompt in responses.”
