Content Mapper with Simply DITA™

The Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) is an XML-based open standard for structuring, developing, managing, and publishing content. DITA has gained widespread adoption in the technical documentation world, and implementation is now spreading out across the organization. Content Mapper with the Simply DITA™ schema is a simple way to adopt DITA.

Content Mapper with the Simply DITA™ Schema

The Simply DITA™ Schema is a subset of the full DITA schema. With it, Content Mapper allows for creating DITA Topics, Tasks, Concepts, References, and Maps while supporting the DITA standard metadata and the DITA Open Toolkit. The familiar Word ribbon provides all the tools you need to create and edit your DITA content.
