Increasing Content Consistency: Flare and HyperSTE

MadCap Flare is solving a lot of your content development problems. So what’s the big issue left? Consistent terminology. If you’re working with a group of people, you know that getting everyone writing to the same style guide can be difficult. But the content reuse possibilities in Flare require consistent language across all topics.

TedoPres has solved this with a new plug-in for Flare. This presentation will show you what HyperSTE adds to Flare and why this may be the tool you can’t do without.
