Inmedius provides a comprehensive S1000D consultancy service that guides and assists you through the practical implications of a project from the planning stage to implementation. By utilizing these resources, you can ensure that S1000D projects are completed on time, within budget, and in compliance with required business rules.

For customers who wish to outsource a documentation project — new, existing or legacy — Inmedius has professional technical authors to undertake the entire task.

Inmedius has extensive expertise in the development and production of specifications-based (S1000D, ATA iSpec, CALS, AESP) or customized stylesheets for clients who wish to use an external, cost-effective development service.

Inmedius can help you define or modify industry DTDs to better support your organization. The DTD defines which elements appear in a document, which attributes can be assigned to an element, and which elements appear inside other elements.
One aspect of S1000D everyone eventually encounters is the need to convert legacy data. Key factors in the difficulty of conversion include; the complexity of the source data and its structure, whether the source documents are in standard word processing format or SGML/XML, graphics (hard copy, raster, vector), and what form the final output will take. Inmedius has extensive working knowledge and years of experience in converting legacy data into S1000D, offering products and services that are engineered to meet customer needs.
