DITA Consultants Listing

List of DITA Consultants

When I was updating the Companies Using DITA listing I made a point of double-checking the type of firm claiming to use DITA. I discovered that I had a number of firms listed were in fact in the business of DITA consulting, and so aided their clients in moving to DITA, and realized that these types of firms belonged in a category all of their own. So I started removing them from the Companies Using DITA listing with an eye to compiling them into a whole other list, designed to aid those technical writing groups who are looking for some form of outside help as they move to DITA.

DITA consulting firms tend to specialize in particular areas, so I have added the categories they specialize in based on descriptions from a consulting firm’s website. I list at most the “top three” types of services they provide, based on a scan of the content they publish on their website. I have also added their location (though many firms operate well outside of where they are located) and a description of what they do lifted directly from their own website.

A caveat: this list is not definitive, so if you are a DITA consultant and have a webpage listing your services, please email me and I will update the list.

Here’s the list (updated September 5, 2017):

XstructuringCulemborgThe NetherlandsTraining, Content Creation
XStructuring is de naam waaronder ik, Birgit Strackenbrock, sinds 2011 als freelancer/zzp’er werk. Ik ben informatieanalist en in deze functie de ideale schakel tussen business en IT. Ik heb veel kennis en ervaring met het opstellen van content-modellen en het structureren van content.

Some explanation for the categories:

  • Content Creation: an outsourcing firm that can produce DITA-based content on behalf of your company.
  • Content Migration: the firm specializes in converting existing legacy content to DITA.
  • Content Strategy: firm will look at your overall content output and will recommend how to optimize it for your customer base.
  • Implementation Support: consultants who work with (and sometimes recommend) Content Management Systems for your workflow.
  • Information Architecture: firm has specialists who examine your existing content and recommend most efficient ways of producing DITA-based content.
  • Stylesheet Development: consulting firm includes developers who work with XSL or related transformation specifications.
  • Tool Development: firm can produce customized software tools designed to aid with specific parts of your documentation process.
  • Training: consulting firm does DITA-related training for your technical writing staff.

In coming up with these categories I tried my best to describe what a consulting firm’s services consisted of, even if they did not use the terms listed above. Many of these firms undertake other types of consulting work, but I have restricted things where possible to those that would be of interest to a potential client looking to move to DITA.

If you find this helpful or have any other constructive suggestions, let me know!

[Kudos also to Sarah O’Keefe who suggested some useful categories for DITA consultants that I incorporated into this listing].
