BOULDER, CO -- Feb 23, 2007 -- ENLASO Corporation, a leading provider of
translation and localization solutions, today announced that it will
present a live training course on Thursday, March 29th, 2007, titled
"Converting Legacy Documents to FrameMaker." The course, taught by
Maxwell Hoffmann, ENLASO's Manager of Consulting and Training Solutions,
features expert advice on how to streamline the document development and
subsequent translation processes into other languages by converting
Microsoft Word documents into FrameMaker documents.

"Converting a large-scale technical manual from Microsoft Word to
FrameMaker can actually reduce translation project costs by up to 35%,"
comments Hoffmann. "We have helped a number of clients convert from
PageMaker, Microsoft Word and other formats to FrameMaker and are
sharing our best practices so that even more customers can reduce
publishing costs in translation and localization projects." This two
hour online course covers the fundamentals of preparing Microsoft Word
documents for conversion and best practices for correcting the imported
content and formatting in FrameMaker, including:

    * Quickly locating styles that need retagging after conversion
    * Using advanced search features during reformatting
    * Efficient tools for correcting converted tables
    * Converting embedded bitmapped graphics to externally referenced
files (reducing document size)
    * Capturing vector graphics created with Microsoft Word drawing
tools and converting them to external graphics with editable vectors and
editable text

FrameMaker online the day before the course, for attendees who need more
background on FrameMaker. Attendees will also be invited to submit a
short "problem" Microsoft Word document to the instructor before the
WebSeminar, so actual real-world examples can be used during the online
