Our booth at the 2013 tekom annual conference: a resounding success

3 min read /

The tekom annual conference is a must for all businesses that provide software and/or services for the technical communications sector. The latest releases of our Scroll add-ons were greeted with enthusiam. Scroll Translations and integration with the Across Language Server attracted particular interest.

This was the second consecutive year that we ran a booth at the accompanying trade show – and it was time well spent. Our booth was always well frequented and our T-shirt giveaways proved very popular. But more importantly, we received valuable feedback from the technical writer community and came away with some interesting new ideas for enhancing our products.

Translation in Confluence and more – the highlights

“The 2013 tekom annual conference was once again an all-round success for the whole company,” reports Tobias Anstett, CTO at K15t Software. “We were extremely busy throughout the three-day event, presenting our new products and describing the latest enhancements.”

The highlights presented at this year's tekom:

  • Our latest add-on, Scroll Translations, used to manage multiple languages directly in Confluence or to translate Confluence content with an external translation management system. The existing option of integration with the Across Language Server was in high demand, and many other TMS companies expressed an interest in integrating Scroll Translations with their products.
  • The latest versions of Scroll Exporters 3.0 with an enhanced and simplified UI.
  • Version 2.1 of our version and variant management add-on, Scroll Versions.

All of our add-ons met with a very favorable reception. And we’d like to say a big “Thank you!” to everyone who visited our booth: for the high-quality feedback you gave us, and for confirming that we’re on the right track with our product development plans.

Goodbye Wiesbaden – Hello Stuttgart!

As you may have heard, this was the last time the tekom annual conference took place in Wiesbaden. Next year’s gathering will be in Stuttgart, just a short distance from our offices. So it’ll be a home game for us, and we’re already looking forward to seeing you again to present new advances in Wiki-based documentation.
