WebWorks ePublisher is a leading platform for converting Microsoft Word, Adobe FrameMaker, DITA XML, and Markdown documents to web and online help formats. Using ePublisher, an author can convert a 1000-page book to a polished, release-quality help project or website in a few minutes—including time for review and quality assurance. ePublisher can generate multivolume help libraries containing thousands of help topics.
ePublisher supports multiple output formats, such as web, online help, and PDF, all from the same project. It provides outstanding document localization support in all languages, for example, Western and Eastern European, Asian, and Hebrew. Documentation departments can use ePublisher to implement a streamlined, multiauthor, single-source solution for all their online publishing needs.
WebWorks ePublisher offers:
- Unparalleled ease of learning for routine help output. We have taught new users how to use ePublisher Express in 10 minutes over the phone—and that is all they need to learn.
- Comprehensive formatting and graphic design capabilities using ePublisher Designer.
- Server-based integration of documentation with nightly software builds using ePublisher AutoMap.
- Zero document conversion costs. ePublisher runs on your existing Word, FrameMaker, DITA, or Markdown source documents. In most cases, no source revisions are necessary for ePublisher compatibility.
- Responsive output that works well and looks good on any device or operating system: desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. Take a look at our sample output and a sample project illustrating embedded YouTube video documentation.
