Instruction and service manuals

Since the translation management „by hand" was too complicated and cost intensive ERBE, decided to buy the XML content management system TIM already in 2001. Today three technical writers create instruction and service manuals structured and modularized with TIM and FrameMaker®. TIM organizes the management of all editorial objects and provides a quick and comfortable access to all contents.

Reliable translation management

All publications are created in German, TIM organizes the already translated XML modules, only new and changed modules need to be translated. External translation service providers translate these into 17 languages with the translation memory systems SDL Trados® and Transit® by STAR. The translated XML modules are saved in TIM and available for reuse.

Company-wide flow of information

ERBE devices and instruments are delivered with printed instruction manuals. In addition, the instruction manuals are available for customers on the ERBE website and are delivered as PDF to the print office, sales and service department via the PLM system agile®. Service manuals are printed for service trainings or delivered directly to the customer and to registration offices world-wide.
