Eine unserer Applikationen verwendet eine Wiki-Installation um Hilfetexte kontextsensitiv darzustellen. Die Texte liegen in Form von Artikeln in MediaWiki vor – die gleiche Technik wie sie Wikipedia verwendet. Durch die Entwicklung unserer Applikation als Software-Produktlinie bot es sich an beim Verfassen von Hilfetexten ähnlich zu verfahren. Ein Fallback erlaubt es nun mit einer einzigen Wiki-Installation spezifische Hilfetexte für Kunden mehrsprachig auszuliefern.

Alle Kunden können so direkt von verbesserter Dokumentation profitieren und gleichzeitig individuelle Inhalte integrieren. Die Inhalte der Hilfe können dabei vom Kunden einfach und flexibel im bewährten MediaWiki angepasst werden."
