Finally, a DITA translation solution that works like DITA.

San Francisco, CA and Beijing, China (November 24, 2016) – Stepes (pronounced /’steps/), the leader in mobile translation, has announced that it will present DITA Meets Mobile Translation, an agile and always-on localization solution for the modern enterprises at the Gilbane Digital Content Conference in Boston on November 29-30, 2016 .

In today’s digital economy, enterprises must develop information fast while ensuring content consistency and linguistic quality across languages in order to achieve the best customer experience globally. Content creation and management have come a long way from static authoring using word processing tools like Word and FrameMaker to dynamic XML/DITA and object-oriented content development methodologies. These new technologies allow content to be created on a topic level and subsequently reused among content writers for improved consistency and efficiency.

“DITA and topic based authoring are ideally suited for mobile translation solutions that are optimized for translating small and fragmented content,” commented Carl Yao, Stepes’ visionary. “Mobile translation offers global businesses an enterprise translation solution that delivers the speed and scalability of machine translation but with human linguistic quality,” continued Yao.

Stepes is the world’s first mobile translation ecosystem powered by professional human translators from around the world. It enables translators to receive instant notifications of new translation requests and allows them to confidently translate anywhere and anytime, all from their smartphone.
