Quadralay Ships WebWorks ePublisher Pro

Oct 07, 2005

Quadralay Corporation, a provider of complete electronic publishing solutions, has announced the immediate availability of its next-generation software solution for creating online content, WebWorks ePublisher Pro for Adobe FrameMaker.

WebWorks ePublisher Pro is a re-engineered, XML-based version of Quadralay's single-source online publishing solution and is fully compatible with FrameMaker 7.2, the latest version of Adobe's enterprise-class authoring and publishing software. WebWorks ePublisher Pro for FrameMaker is designed to give users the ability to create customized content for the Web, intranets, professional online Help systems, portable devices, enterprise-ready XML, or PDFs. The software provides flexibility for Help authors, technical writers, documentation professionals, and other content providers wanting to produce content for common online formats directly from Adobe FrameMaker files.

WebWorks ePublisher Pro for FrameMaker include a new 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, and more. A new feature called IntelliStyles automatically imports an author's preexisting FrameMaker styles into a WebWorks ePublisher Pro project, designed to save time and effort. Authors can use Adobe FrameMaker to write, maintain, and update content, then use ePublisher Pro to manage and deliver multiple online formats such as HTML, XHTML, DHTML, or the crossbrowser, cross-platform information system WebWorks Help. Adobe FrameMaker 7.2 software includes WebWorks Publisher Standard Edition 8.0 software to extend FrameMaker's XML and HTML publishing capabilities. WebWorks Publisher Standard Edition gives users the ability to control the appearance of online documents. WebWorks ePublisher Pro for FrameMaker is available for purchase online at the WebWorks Store. The software is priced at US$1,395 for authors, and internationally for US$1,515. WebWorks ePublisher Pro for Word shipped in June 2005, and is available for purchase by authors for US$1,000, and internationally for US$1,100. For a limited time, customers can save $250 when upgrading from any competitive Help authoring tool.
