(Idiom), the only enterprise software company to deliver advanced XML-based publishing and content globalization solutions, and Blast Radius Inc., the world leader in XML content creation and collaboration solutions, today announced details of a joint Webinar, "Accelerating Content Delivery: A Global Approach," scheduled for Thursday, October 27 at 1:00 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT.

Who: Jerry Silver, director, product management, Blast Radius and
Bill Rabkin, senior globalization evangelist, Idiom

What: Forward thinking organizations are keenly aware of the
importance of adopting a global perspective to drive
successful development and deployment of important business
information, ranging from product packaging and marketing
collateral, to technical documentation and Web-based customer
service applications.

Effective content reuse is critical to streamlining content
delivery processes and reducing the cost of publishing and
translation activities. The objective is to write once,
translate once, and use many times. As the new topic-oriented
standard for authoring and managing product and technical
information, Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA)
encourages content reuse and helps global organizations
quickly realize related cost, quality and time-to-market

Blast Radius and Idiom have joined forces to create a complete
solution for topic-oriented authoring and global content
delivery based on the increasing popular DITA standard. Join
this upcoming Webinar to learn how topic-oriented authoring
and the combined Idiom WorldServer™ and Blast Radius
XMetaL® solution can help global organizations create,
translate and deliver business information more efficiently
and cost effectively.

When: Thursday, October 27 at 1:00 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT.
