SCHEMA GmbH has integrated an interactive designer in the new version of SCHEMA ST4, allowing for the creation of a consistent layout for all target formats. The user defines how text elements will be presented, selecting font type and size, and formatting. This information will be reused for all publications, whether for print, online or PDF formats, guaranteeing a unified presentation. Version 3 of SCHEMA ST4 also features rule-based conversion of high-quality graphics to standardized sizes. In addition, graphics that are already stored in the editing and content management system can be converted in batches. The user defines for these graphics what size, resolution and format the online, print or electronic versions should have. When generating the publication, SCHEMA ST4 uses these settings for all graphics.
SCHEMA ST4 With New PIM Module
An export interface allows product data to be exported to MS Excel where the data is displayed as tables classified according to defined attributes. These tables can then be used in documentation, e.g. for presenting technical properties.
SCHEMA ST4 also boasts additional features which allow for the creation of relationships between information modules. From a web of phrases, relevant content can be matched, and the phrases then used for navigation and searching.
More Flexibility in Positioning Text and Graphics
Finding Reuse Potential – Reducing Translation Costs
SCHEMA ST4 now also supports the EPUB format (acronym for electronic publication). EPUB is an open standard for e-books from the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). In August 2009, Google announced that in the context of its "Google Book Search" one million books are already available in EPUB format. Not only for publishers but also for technical documentation EPUB is a promising format for the future.
