XMetaL Author Enterprise XML Editor Integration to SiberSafe CMS

XMetaL is ideal for the creation and publication of complex and lengthy technical documentation. It is the authoring tool of choice for a large segment of the technical writing community.



  • XMetaL is a proven industry-standard authoring tools with a long and successful history.
  • XMetaL shows which tags are allowed in context for authors new to a DTD or schema, easing the learning curve.
  • XMetaL’s easy-to-use interface can easily switch back and forth from text view, to tag view, to preview. Preview and XMetaL editing style sheets are closer to WYSIWYG, so authors need to publish less often to see the output format.
  • The authoring interface is intuitive and has proven easy to learn with little training required.
  • The DTD/schema validation feedback helps correct any mistakes before checking into the repository.

    SiberSafe/XMetaL XML integration

    Our SiberSafe/XMetaL XML integration extends XMetaL authoring into a complete, cohesive, and cost-effective XML content management environment for technical documents. The SiberSafe/XMetaL integration offers standard SiberSafe functionality directly from XMetaL via menus and context-sensitive commands. SiberSafe is tightly integrated with the latest version, XMetaL Author Enterprise 6.0.

    SiberSafe/XMetaL DITA or S1000D integration

    Our XMetaL integration delivers SiberSafe DITA Edition or S1000D Edition functionality in conjunction with XMetaL. SiberSafe has an integrated menu to deliver seamless content management functionality from within the XMetaL user interface. From the familiar XMetaL environment, users can open a topic or data module and retrieve the content along with associated dependencies such as DITA xref targets, S1000D internalRef targets, link targets, and referenced images. And content reuse is streamlined and straightforward via SiberSafe's support for DITA content references (conrefs) and S1000D DMrefs.

    The XMetaL integration incorporates SiberLogic's flexible, powerful workflow functionality:

    • authoring and review assignments are submitted and automatically distributed via workflow email
    • each contributor has a list of tasks and knows how and when to execute them
    • managers can keep track of progress and resource allocation

    With a host of additional features such as collaborative review and translation management, the complexity of the technical documentation process is reduced to a single integrated platform.

    The synergy between SiberSafe and XMetaL offers real and tangible benefits to  authoring teams. The integration enables technical documentation to be created with a familiar, highly appropriate tool, managed in an environment designed for exactly that material, and published using the best of both technologies.
