Create a Media Package

When you create a Media package for a map, all media files associated with the map, for example, diagrams or screenshots, are bundled together and made available to you in the form of a ZIP file that you can download and send to your localization provider. The Media package contains no DITA maps or topics, only media files. The files are located in a folder structure that is identical to your Heretto CCMS folder structure.

Before you create a Media package, verify that the media file names contain no illegal characters, for example, spaces. If they do, you will not be able to upload the localized package back to Heretto CCMS.
