Following, Jim DeFabia, presents his breakout session in the Documentation & Training Track.
Translating a manual once is not a terribly difficult task. However, our manuals are always evolving, so we needed a plan to update translations on a regular basis. This requires a process that is maintainable, repeatable, and robust. In this case study of our forays into documentation internationalization, you can learn from our successes and laugh at some of our missteps along the way.
Jim DeFabia is the Documentation Lead for HPCC Systems®. He entered the field of technical documentation in 1993 at Clarion Software/TopSpeed, where he helped revolutionize the industry by creating manuals that people could read and actually understand. It was at TopSpeed that he first met and worked with many of the HPCC Systems “Mavericks.” So it was like coming home when he reunited with these colleagues in 2001 as they were initially developing the HPCC Systems platform, which was then released to the Open Source community in 2011.
