This presentation shows how terminology can be managed, validated and published in a DITA based technical documentation. The solution is based on the oXygen XML editor and DITA.


You will learn how to represent terms with DITA topics. The presenter will show how to create and modify terms, and how to transform the terminology data to a terminology browser, TBX and a Schematron based terminology checker.

Prior knowledge

Technical knowledge in the area of terminology, XML and DITA is recommended.
