Eclipse S1000D key features
Eclipse S1000D for Adobe FrameMaker has many key features to help you create your content quickly and accurately
The Eclipse plug-in technology allows project specific add-ons to be developed that will allow additional formatting rules to work alongside or overwrite the S1000D formatting required.
CSDB connection layer
As part of the application Mekon has developed an interconnectivity layer which permits connection to Common Source Database applications from Third Parties. If you already have a CSDB and want to leverage the benefits of using Eclipse S1000D to create your content with integration to your CSDB content, then please ask about our connector options.
Why do I need Mekon?
Mekon have worked with Adobe FrameMaker, and have been an Adobe partner, for many years developing applications, stylesheets and tools to support various authoring needs. Although our S1000D tools are compliant with the standard we can develop local solutions for formatting or editing tasks. We also provide training in both the tools and in the standard so that users have an understanding of the requirements for structured authoring with S1000D.
A solution that fits the problem
Taking on an S1000D project can be a considerable task and needs a lot of pre-planning and well thought out implementation. The Mekon team can leverage their 20 years’ experience of structured topic based authoring to assist you with every step of the process.
All this is backed by the high standard of support provided by Mekon’s in-house support and development teams.
