“The new Dx4 integration with oXygen XML Web Author offers users of both solutions the benefits of Dx4’s capabilities, the familiarity of the oXygen XML Web Author, and the convenience of editing DITA XML right within your browser,” commented Jim Nichols, vice president, DitaExchange. “We are delighted to bring these new capabilities to Dx4 users.”

This strategic partnership enables current and future clients to have access to all of the features provided by the oXygen XML Web Author, including:

  • Edit and review XML content in a web browser from anywhere, on mobile devices or desktop systems.
  • Ready-to-use visual editing support for DITA and other XML documents in a simple interface that is similar to a word processor.
  • Inline hints and content completion assistance to help simplify structured authoring.
  • Automatic validation and schema-aware editing features to always keep your documents valid.
  • Convenient data input controls to allow users to work with content without being intimidated by XML.
  • Helpful review tools that allow you to efficiently collaborate with your whole team.”

“We have experienced a large amount of interest from the technical authoring community to provide users with a web-based XML authoring solution that is highly intuitive and easy to use,” said Stefan Vasile, managing director at SyncRO Soft. “The oXygen team is very excited about the opportunity to work closely with DitaExchange to deliver our oXygen XML Web Author integrated with the Dx4 structured content management solution.”

Dx4 runs on the SharePoint platform – on premise or in Microsoft Office 365 and Azure. Dx4 enables organizations to create and store content in a componentized way so that it is infinitely re-usable with the ability to consistently publish anywhere in the format recipients require.
