Technical Documentation Solutions Series

The Technical Documentation Solutions Series is a compilation of hands-on books that encompass the whole process of creating user manuals, online help systems, screencasts, plus other forms of user assistance and technical communication.

Each book of the series covers one specific task in the process so that people who are involved in only one phase of a technical documentation project can easily focus on just that part.

The books in the series strictly avoid all sorts of lengthy theory but provide best practices, hands-on solutions, clear recommendations, working aids, and examples that you can easily remember and readily apply to your own work.

Readers of the series are:

full-time technical writers

developers, marketing professionals, and product managers who occasionally write some technical documentation

designers who create templates for user manuals and online help systems

multimedia experts who create screencasts (software videos) and e-learning courses
