Abstract

A frequent question raised by professionals in the information industry, such as writers and translators, is how we can optimize information for the computer medium that is so ubiquitous today. The effectiveness of an information product largely depends on how easily it can be found in online searches. The cost of producing information is related to how clear, concise and effective the information is, and how often it can be reused in different delivery media and for different purposes and audiences. There are increasing demands for information to be suitable for automated processes such as machine translation or content classification. New natural language processing (NLP) technologies such as controlled authoring software, content management systems, and computer-assisted translation (CAT) tools are becoming commonplace in documentation and translation departments. These and other technology-driven changes are transforming information into tangible digital assets that can be organized, structured, managed, and repurposed.
