Summary

Summary Technical communicators have a long track record of multichannel delivery that enterprise and digital publishers can learn from. As the technical communication industry matured, it discovered how to reuse content in different ways: • Multiple channels, multiple copies • Single-source publishing • Customized content • Dynamic content The industry soon began to split into two different directions: one moving towards structured XML-based content for print and user assistance materials while the other moved towards wikis and community interaction. However, the two communities are now moving together to marry the intelligence of DITA, XML standard and wikis, communities and the social Web. Because technical communicators have moved to structured, reusable content, their content is future-proofed and they can easily adapt their content to new devices yet to be designed.
