Established in 1975, Autodata is Europe’s leading publisher and supplier of technical information for automotive professionals. Autodata’s core business is researching, compiling, and creating technical documentation for the maintenance and repair of motor vehicles. In the 1990s, Autodata introduced structured content to its workflow in the form of Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) to publish technical documentation more quickly and accurately.
With the advent of electronic communication, however, Autodata needed an XML solution to replace SGML that allowed authors to focus on content, not the technicalities of the markup language. A thorough review of the market led Autodata to choose Quark XML Author for Microsoft Word.
