User guides and user manuals

Our technical writers create user guides and user manuals for software, hardware and electronic products

We have an in-house team of experienced technical authors. They create first-class user guides, training manuals and graphical quick start guides for software, hardware and technology products.

We use mainstream Microsoft and Adobe tools to do our work. We also provide you with the source files. This means you can maintain the documentation yourselves if you wish.

Release the pressure on your support desk and save costs.

They are usually supported by further documentation, for example, online help or a more detailed user guide downloadable as a .PDF

Single sourcing

So our technical writers produce a first class user guide for you. Using specialist technical authoring software (for example, Adobe’s RoboHelp or MadCap Flare) we can generate online, web enabled user assistance for you, from the same source. Every time the guide is updated, you only update the source, not both outputs.

Task-based writing

Your customers read user guides with a specific objective. Usually to help carry out a particular task. Consequently our guides are written in a task-based format, providing easy-to-follow instructions. We don’t describe your product; we tell people how to use it.

Great illustrations and infographics

Our guides are highly graphical so that information can be quickly absorbed and translation costs kept to a minimum. Quick start guides are a particular skill which we know very well. Getting started with a project entails just following a series of graphics.
