Information forms the basis of all business processes, the technical and commercial know-how for production and service of your products. Having complete control of your information is the key to your success. How do you manage your enterprise information in a multilingual environment? Can this information be centralized and shared by different groups in your company; such as marketing, support or development?

Mr. Zibung will share with the members his experience of more than 20 years in the field of technical communication, and will explain how STAR’s new approach of comparing information with music opens new possibilities for information strategies and saves multinational companies such as BMW, Hilti or Ferrari millions of Euros.

Content management systems (CMS) make it possible to manage complex and multilayered information processes that are centered on information creation, management and publication. STAR offers a unique information model by splitting the creation of content and the actual use of information.

Josef Zibung is the founder of STAR AG, which was founded as a small translation agency in 1984 in the northern Swiss city of Stein am Rhein near Schaffhausen. Today, the STAR Group is one of the world leading providers of multilingual, technical communication, and a service provider for the entire lifecycle of technical information – from technical editing, illustration and logistics tasks to specialist technical translation and customer-oriented formatting for all types of media, as well as the only one of these companies that is still privately owned with a global network of 38 offices on 4 continents.
