I am using Scroll Versions, Scroll Viewport and Scroll Translation for the online documentation of a software product (German and English).
Moreover, I am using Scroll PDF Exporter and Scroll HTML Exporter to generate PDF files and HTML files for the same product documentation.
Now the software product will be branded. So the branded product will show a different product name and a different company name. For instance, "Ax" should be displayed instead of the usual product name "A" and "Bx" should be displayed instead of the usual company name "B".
The product documentation should be branded as well. I am wondering whether there is a best practice for this?
Of course, the usual product documentation as well as the branded product documentation should be provided as fast (= automated) as possible. And for each monthly release as well.
I have already prepared the articles for our usual product documentation as follows:
The usual product name and the usual company name is specified within separate articles within the "_InclusionLibrary". Whenever the product name and the company name is quoted in an article, I am using the macro "Include+" to include the specific article with the product or company name. So I am able to quickly replace the product and company names for the usual product documentation.
But I am unsure about the best way to regularly create a branded product documentation.
I thought to publish the usual product documentation (the normal space) into a separate space and to change the product and company names in this separate space. Then the PFD-files and HTML-files will be created from this separate space with the changed names.
Would I need to manually change the product and company names for each release? Is it possible to change the product and company names in an automated mode? Or is it possible to keep the changed names (for the next published documentation)?
If you have any experiences with branded product documentation and its maintenance, I would be very grateful for your insights.
