Act successfully worldwide. With SCHEMA ST4.

This development is driven by ever shorter production cycles and a continuous flood of information which needs to be channeled and structured. In addition, all information must be consistent and multilingual.

Technical documentation is therefore an integral component of engineering. Information must be available when plant construction is completed – and this frequently in several target languages and various output formats. For a good while now, product information, which can reach 30,000 or 40,000 pages, has been required in other formats than print. User guides, operation manuals, assembly and installation instructions, as well as log books or service manuals need to be accessible online as well.

Consistency despite variety.

Whether just a dozen or several thousand product variants, consistency is a central requirement of technical documentation. This consistency for reusable information modules can be achieved through automation with the Component Content Management System SCHEMA ST4 – including cost savings and error reduction.

Efficient translation.

SCHEMA ST4 can be used for more than a hundred target languages in the global markets. In doing so, only the information units that have been requested are consistently translated. In addition to higher volumes and time and cost savings in comparison with external translation services, SCHEMA ST4 wins with its intelligent interface to external translation memory systems.

Many layouts.

Whether it’s the OEM variant or rebranding with the look of your secondary brand – not only can the information be different, but also its appearance. With the XML editing system SCHEMA ST4, the layout is automated and is available in the target medium in the desired look.

Many output formats.

Embedded in the machine control, as service information on the tablet, as print document or HTML file – SCHEMA ST4 supports more than a dozen output formats out of the box.
