Learn everything you need to know about PDF/A in plain, simple English with DocsCorp
 
PDF is dead, long live PDF/A. Well, perhaps not dead, however a number of European Government and regulatory bodies now mandate, recommend, or accept PDF/A for the long-term archival of documents. Attend this webinar to learn more. The webinar will address these frequently asked questions:
    1.    What is PDF/A, and how is it different from a non-PDF/A document?
    2.    How do I know if a document is PDF/A compliant?
    3.    How do I create a PDF/A document?
    4.    Is there a way to make documents PDF/A ready, without actually converting them to PDF/A?
    5.    Should I implement these changes to existing PDF workflows?
    6.    Should I be converting every document to PDF/A now?
 
The webinar takes place on Thursday 11th August (
12:00PM – 1:00PM GMT). To attend, login to https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/351383873
