Technical Documentation

Xeditor allows for outstanding content quality with maximum reusability



Instructions and technical documentation are an integral part of the development of software, products and machines. They help make products safer as well as easier to understand and maintain. For this reason, they should be written in a comprehensible way, stored in a standardized way and easily-reusable. Additionally, they often have to comply with country-specific regulations.

Detailed information is the key to the smooth implementation, easy maintenance, and reliable problem analysis in software and product development.


Xeditor helps you create manuals and documentation in XML format. To ensure the best possible reuse of information, it is structured and divided into granular information units called topics. Intelligent author support intuitively guides authors through complex document structures. Various plug-ins, such as Acrolinx, ensure outstanding content quality. Xeditor supports individual schemes (XSD, DTD) as well as industry standards such as DITA, DocBook and PI-Mod. It can be integrated easily into existing systems such as CMS and DMS.

The Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) is a document format similar to the well-known DocBook. DITA is developed by IBM and OASIS as a free architecture and is available free of charge as a document type definition (DTD).


PI-Mod is an information model that is intended to cover the essential semantic information structures for user and service documentation. The information model provides a collection structure for the modular collection of information. It is largely implementation-independent to enable easy integration into content management systems (CMS).


DocBook is a document format that is defined in a document type definition (DTD) available for SGML and XML. It is particularly suitable for the creation of books, articles and documentation in the technical environment (hardware or software). DocBook is an open standard maintained by the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS).
