ENLASO (translate.com) to Host Live WebSeminar on Converting Legacy Documents to FrameMaker

BOULDER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 23, 2007 -- ENLASO Corporation, a leading provider of translation and localization solutions, today announced that it will present a live training course on Thursday, March 29th, 2007, titled "Converting Legacy Documents to FrameMaker." The course, taught by Maxwell Hoffmann, ENLASO's Manager of Consulting and Training Solutions, features expert advice on how to streamline the document development and subsequent translation processes into other languages by converting Microsoft Word documents into FrameMaker documents.

"Converting a large-scale technical manual from Microsoft Word to FrameMaker can actually reduce translation project costs by up to 35%," comments Hoffmann. "We have helped a number of clients convert from PageMaker, Microsoft Word and other formats to FrameMaker and are sharing our best practices so that even more customers can reduce publishing costs in translation and localization projects."

This two hour online course covers the fundamentals of preparing Microsoft Word documents for conversion and best practices for correcting the imported content and formatting in FrameMaker, including:

--  Quickly locating styles that need retagging after conversion
--  Using advanced search features during reformatting
--  Efficient tools for correcting converted tables
--  Converting embedded bitmapped graphics to externally referenced files
    (reducing document size)
--  Capturing vector graphics created with Microsoft Word drawing tools
    and converting them to external graphics with editable vectors and editable
    text

Course attendees receive a free FrameMaker plug-in that automatically converts the first row of each table to a "header row," a Best Practices document on converting legacy files, training materials, and a recording of the training session. Because the course assumes some knowledge of FrameMaker, ENLASO will hold a complimentary one-hour overview of FrameMaker online the day before the course, for attendees who need more background on FrameMaker. Attendees will also be invited to submit a short "problem" Microsoft Word document to the instructor before the WebSeminar, so actual real-world examples can be used during the online training.

Educational Webinars and WebSeminars are part of ENLASO's commitment to providing long-term localization success through education and consulting. "Converting Legacy Documents to FrameMaker" is designed for FrameMaker users who inherit legacy documents in Microsoft Word format and for Microsoft Word users who are considering upgrading to FrameMaker.

This WebSeminar is taught by Maxwell Hoffmann, a 23-year veteran of desktop publishing and document conversion solutions. Hoffmann manages training and consulting at ENLASO. He has used FrameMaker for over 18 years and is also a former FrameMaker Product Marketing Manager. Hoffmann has focused on document localization and translation for the past 10 years, working extensively with document analysis and XML publishing strategies. He has trained over 1,000 customers and sales professionals on a variety of scalable publishing solutions.
