“Adobe FrameMaker offers stability to organizations that want to help ensure that their content and formatting standards are followed by technical writers. Templates in Microsoft Word are too often inadvertently corrupted by writers. Content management and reuse is much better handled when working with FrameMaker XML mode.”

Content Rules

“Adobe FrameMaker has been the gold standard for creating technical documentation for decades. The functionality and features in the software are unrivaled if you are creating large-scale documentation in any arena. Likewise, Adobe FrameMaker is a logical choice for organizations that need to take advantage of single-sourcing, reuse, and structured authoring tools.”

“For the planning, creation, review, publishing, and distribution of content for technical communications there are few tools that can stand toe-to-toe with Adobe FrameMaker and deliver the same productivity gains, content reuse, design benefits, and other non-tangibles that are part of my every day work life.”

Rick Quatro

“Adobe FrameMaker lends itself to automation. I can use the built-in ExtendScript scripting language to easily automate repetitive tasks and create utilities for additional functionality. I have written more than 6,600 scripts for FrameMaker over the last dozen years, and I am still amazed at how FrameMaker can be automated for technical publication workflows of all kinds.”

Writing Wise

“Adobe FrameMaker 11 is an essential tool in any technical communicator's arsenal. Versatile, dependable, and efficient—it is a comprehensive tool that can handle the best and worst technical content you throw at it, whether you're writing in structured content or not. From templates to tables of contents, your content will be authored faster and more dependably than any other authoring tool out there. When you combine FrameMaker with the rest of the Technical Communication Suite, the world of desktop publishing is at your fingertips.”

“Adobe FrameMaker allows me to work in a modular way to handle thousand-page manuals with scores of images and cross-references, and produces high-quality PDF documents. And with structured FrameMaker and ExtendScript included out of the box, my production time has dramatically decreased. My company would not have the success it has today without FrameMaker.”

Publishing Smarter

“When it comes to developing a complete publication with a unique look and feel to represent your company, Adobe FrameMaker shines. Tables, images, headers and footers, page layout, numbering, and cross-references all work across hundreds or thousands of pages. Why? Because these features are in the DNA of FrameMaker and have helped set the standard and define it. FrameMaker helped define the market for tools that help technical communicators.”

“Microsoft Word is great for letters and memos, but it wasn't designed for technical documents. Adobe FrameMaker features like book production, referencing, and numbering lead the industry; its ability to output to Help and mobile formats saves me and my clients lots of time and money.”

“For those of us that have been working with Adobe FrameMaker for many years, its consistency and robustness in production is something we can take for granted. It is a professional tool at a reasonable price for documentation specialists who need a scalable authoring and publishing solution. If you have taken MS Word as far as it can go, Adobe FrameMaker 11 is the next step for you.”

“For large, complex documentation, the ability to automate layouts and formatting with Adobe FrameMaker is a big productivity booster for technical communications teams. And today, most organizations want to maximize the reach and usability of technical content to best serve the end user. Adobe makes this easy with the interoperability of tools to create one single source document in FrameMaker and make it accessible anytime and on a variety of mobile devices via HTML5 publishing using RoboHelp 10. This is another valuable differentiator that sets Adobe software apart from standard word processing software.”

“Adobe FrameMaker 11 is ideal for anyone who needs to manage large volumes of content that span products, audiences, or platforms, and wants to create a reuse model that is second to none. In a single product, FrameMaker works across the design, review, management, and publishing of content with tools to apply best practices of structured writing that enable organizations to benefit from a standard content model.”
