Unconventional routes to high quality – All in a day’s work for Positive Technologies thanks to ST4

The information that a company distributes is never in a vacuum. Instead, it affects the content of many internal and external processes and, therefore, the content of user documentation in particular. If, for example, developers adjust the functionality of a software package, the interface also changes. Both of these aspects must also be replicated in the product documentation.

A preview of our SCHEMA Conference 2018

As in previous years, the common thread that unites the various components of this year’s conference is the trend that is under way in the realm of technical documentation – namely moving away from analogue preparation methods, and proceeding via digital document storage through to the smart provision of information. The conference is an event that has now become a fixed point on the annual calendar of agents and decision-makers in the “tech doc” sector: the SCHEMA Conference in Nuremberg. This year, we are looking forward to welcoming clients, technical writers, experts and, last but not least, trendsetters and pioneers at the Nürnberger Conference Center (NCC Mitte) on 19 and 20 June.
