Electronic publishing solutions provider, Quadralay, announced the launch of WebWorks ePublisher Pro, its next-generation solution for creating online content.

The new desktop ePublishing software sets an innovative standard by leveraging the power of XML and allowing users to quickly and easily create customized content for the Web, intranets, professional online Help systems, portable devices, enterprise-ready XML, or PDFs.

WebWorks ePublisher Pro opens new doors by providing greater flexibility and ease of use for Help authors, technical writers, documentation professionals, and other content providers wanting to produce content for common online formats directly from Microsoft Word or Adobe FrameMaker files. In addition, the new software features simple WYSIWYG controls and push-button processing that give authors full control of the look and feel of Help content and other online information.

"Now with WebWorks ePublisher Pro, authors can create customized online-viewable content directly from Microsoft Word or Adobe FrameMaker documents. It's easier to control and faster, so it saves time and money," says Michael E. Fabry, CEO of Quadralay Corporation. "Microsoft Word is one of the world's most popular applications used to create documents for print and electronic distribution, and we are proud to address the needs of its users."

Streamline Workflow

WebWorks ePublisher Pro for Word enables the quick customization and conversion of content directly from Microsoft Word. It improves productivity and saves time with a more intelligent workflow that eliminates the painstaking step of importing Wordauthored content into a separate authoring environment in order to transform the content into a desired online format. Authors can use Microsoft Word to write, maintain, and update content, then use ePublisher Pro to easily manage and deliver multiple online formats such as HTML, XHTML, DHTML, or the cross-browser, cross-platform information system WebWorks Help.

Get Help

WebWorks ePublisher Pro for Word makes it easy to create professional Help systems. Instead of copying and pasting content into a proprietary editor, or managing multiple document versions, authors can design and deliver complete Help systems with their content remaining solely in Microsoft Word. ePublisher Pro provides a dynamic preview window for designing the look and feel of each Help system, as well as an intuitive graphical interface for developing commonly required advanced features. ePublisher Pro includes a versatile Microsoft Word plug-in called WebWorks Transit, which adds markers and conditionaltext functionality directly to the Microsoft Word environment. Context-sensitive help is fully supported for many development environments, including Java, C++, .NET, and Web-based applications. Currently supported Help formats include HTML Help, WebWorks Help, WinHelp, JavaHelp, JavaHelp 2, and Oracle Help for Java. Full support is planned for Microsoft's Longhorn

Help once it becomes available.

Transition Easily

The functionality necessary to import legacy RoboHelp-based content is included in ePublisher Pro. Authors can open RoboHelp projects and easily create new Microsoft Word documents for future content sources.

Gain Accessibility

Accessible content is a must for government and education, and WebWorks ePublisher Pro ensures the broadest possible access. WebWorks ePublisher Pro produces online content that is compliant with Section 508 of federal law, which is intended to eliminate barriers in information technology and create new opportunities for people with disabilities. Most ePublisher Pro output formats fully support accessibility, with automatic code validation.

Translate Fluently

WebWorks ePublisher Pro includes support for more than 45 languages, including out-of-the-box support for double-byte languages. Translated content can be easily reproduced in any output for most European languages, as well as Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese.

Accelerated ePublishing for FrameMaker Authors

The power of WebWorks ePublisher Pro is not confined to Microsoft Word users. Quadralay Corporation also completely re-engineered its previous single-source online publishing solution for Adobe FrameMaker. WebWorks ePublisher Pro for FrameMaker features many new innovations, including a user-friendly interface and XML-based processing for improved performance. The new application also includes an online content-preview window for visual style development, GUI-based advanced customizations, an improved code editor, and more.

Pricing and Availability

WebWorks ePublisher Pro for Word ships in June 2005, and is available for purchase by authors for US$1,000, and internationally for US$1,100.

WebWorks ePublisher Pro for FrameMaker ships in July 2005, and is available for purchase by authors for US$1,395, and internationally for US$1,515.

For a limited time, customers can save $250 when purchasing either product when upgrading from any competitive Help authoring tool.
