Systems and Programs

In our daily work, we rely especially on programs from leading manufacturers such as SCHEMA ST4, TRADOS, and the Adobe Creative Suite. However, we also frequently work on our customers’ systems and programs. If you do not see a relevant program in this list, this doesn’t mean that we cannot handle it. It is just not something we use every day.

Content management systems

The content management system is the central tool for technical editors. We work with the following systems:

  • Quanos ST4 with XMetal as editor
  • Cosima by Docufy
  • Noxum Publishing Studio
  • TIM-RS by Fischer Computertechnik
  • MadCap Flare (file-based)

CAT systems

Dokuwerk works especially with TRADOS and Across. You can specify which TM system we should use for you, or we will help you select one. We are in a position to process nearly all file formats in the translation process, including XML, HTML, SVG, InDesign, and FrameMaker

Project management with Plunet

Plunet is a browser-based platform that we use to manage translation projects. You can use the platform to make inquiries and place orders. We use it to create quotations, commission translation jobs, and accept deliveries. Our customers receive secure access to Plunet and have the opportunity to inform themselves about the translation status and generate reports.

Graphics processing

To create graphics and illustrations, we take over your 3D data in the STEP format and process it further. We use the following programs:

  • Arbortext IsoDraw and IsoDraw CADprocess
  • Creo Illustrate
  • Adobe Creative Cloud (Acrobat, Illustrator, and Photoshop)
  • CorelDRAW Technical Suite
  • Image processing with various CAD programs’ composers

InDesign, FrameMaker, and Word

The Adobe products InDesign and FrameMaker, as well as Microsoft Word are still frequently used in technical content management. We will be glad to help you with the following processes:

  • Migration from these file formats to a content management system
  • Development of templates
  • Automation of rule-based activities
