Need for Structured Content

Did you know? Ninety percent of the content shared on the internet today was produced during the last two years. Massive quantities of content in various media are produced every day. The burgeoning demand creates the need for structured content that can be assembled and reused in various formats instead of producing whole, unique units to address every variation.

Some examples of structured content that can be repurposed without modification include:

  • Software UI strings, manuals, and online help share a lot of content
  • Safety data sheets and labeling are built of repeating text chunks
  • Product descriptions in a webshop can also be used in a printed product catalog
  • Medical documentation and patient narratives
  • Contracts and end-user licensing agreements often have repetitive content
  • Legal content required by regulation can often be used in multiple locations or documents without revision

What is DITA?

Darwin Information Typing Architecture, one of the most used Structured Content standards, is an Open XML format. Its special elements and hierarchies fit perfectly into structured authoring workflows, so you can consistently organize information in documents. DITA can be published in various formats, including PDF, HTML, Word, Markdown, InDesign, JSON, WordPress, and SCROM.
