Converting existing content into DITA can help you reap the benefits of your new DITA documentation system and reach your target return on investment (ROI) more quickly. A quality conversion can also provide your authors with a solid foundation and benchmark from which to create new content, based on familiar, pre-existing material. In this webinar, Yehudit Lindblom and Joe Gelb from Suite Solutions will discuss the conversion process and steps to prepare specifications for your legacy conversion:
Develop mapping rules between the current document elements and new DITA tagging structures, including specifications for migrating conditional tagging (profiling) and variables.
Develop pre- and post-conversion checklists.
Use the conversion process to help understand the evolution between your current documentation and the new DITA XML content model.
