So erstellen Sie technische Dokumentation in Rekordzeit
(How to produce technical documentation in record time)


  • Dominik Faupel (Hilti Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH)

Reusing content saves time, money and effort. Component Content Management solutions facilitate reuse at a topic/sentence level. STAR GRIPS also features structure assistants for the reuse of complex semantic content structures. Hilti utilises this to generate operating manuals in just one or two hours. This talk will look at their approach to content, explained with a practical example.

When? As part of Technology Days – Monday 6th November, 9.10 a.m.– 9.50 a.m.

Semantische Produktinformationen – der Schlüssel zur digitalen Prozessunterstützung
(Semantic product information – the key to digital process support)

(Augmented Translation – CAT tool development at STAR in the age of MT and LLMs)


  • Julian Hamm (STAR Deutschland)

Customer Interaction über das Projekt hinaus: von In-Country Review bis Quality & Risk Management

  • Birgit Maria Hoppe (STAR Deutschland)


STAR CLM, the platform for Corporate Language Management, provides the best possible support for quality management through maximum customer integration.

Die Content-Factory: Rezepte entwickeln für digitalen Mehrwert
(The Content Factory: Developing recipes for added digital value)


  • Roland Schmeling (Schmeling + Consultants GmbH)
  • Dr. Matthias Gutknecht (STAR Group)


Digital applications and services relating to complex products require a high standard of information quality: These need to be structured, standardised, highly granular, free of redundancies and semantically linked. For this standard to be achieved, the technical editing must have the right infrastructure and process maturity. What exactly are the requirements of data models, systems, interfaces, processes, roles and skills? Which recipes are worthwhile and when do they start overshooting? Using an application example for digitalisation, we will together derive the specific requirements of the processes and data. In turn, these requirements provide sound justification for the necessary investment.

Thursday, 16th November, 11.30 a.m.–1.15 p.m., room C9.3


See you there!
