How-to series: Taxonomy for DITA 101: Classifying DITA Tasks

DITA Tasks are often the most valuable content we create – especially when we present them in Support portals. But if end-users can’t find them they have no value – avoiding that requires classifying them with metadata and labels from a standard taxonomy.

Taxonomy and metadata can seem like scary or complex turf to the uninitiated – but they don’t have to be. In this 40-minute webinar, Paul Wlodarczyk will walk you through a simple process to begin to assemble a basic taxonomy of controlled vocabularies for tagging your DITA Tasks.

You will learn:

  • The most critical metadata for classifying tasks – regardless of your industry
  • How to use tools that you already own to build your taxonomy
  • Simple rules for keeping your terms consistent
  • Using existing lists of terms so you don’t have to build a taxonomy from scratch

Plus we’ll use the rest of the hour to answer any of your questions.
