I’m an information architect, business consultant and DITA expert at Fischer Computertechnik FCT AG, Germany. I make it my mission to keep reminding writers that documentation has to be easy to find, easy to understand, easy to use. The safest way is to optimize your workflows and to thinkDITA: applying the reuse, flexibility and exchange mechanisms of the DITA standard.</shortdesc>
My expertise has been built by 15 years in Technical Communication, a BA in Management, an MSc in Project Management, the certification in Technical Documentation, and most of all, continuous curiosity and learning. All this sharpened my interest in structured documentation, DITA and information systems implementation. Over the years, I took part in various projects of content migration, implementation of content management systems, rebranding and localization, in multinational companies dealing with building materials, software, cinema, broadcast and e-media technologies.
I live in Friedrichshafen, by Lake Constance in South of Germany. When my friends don’t have to put up with my stories about DITA, tools and writing, we get to talk about languages, cultures, families, books, movies, travelling and photography.
I’ll be sharing my thoughts on DITA, Technical Communication and Information Architecture on this blog, and I’m looking forward to hearing yours.
