Creation of Texts for User Interfaces
As an expert for software user assistance, I create consistent, clear, and helpful texts for the user interface (UI / GUI) of your software. In addition, I can also create the required supplemental manuals, online help files, and screencasts (software videos).
We shouldn’t fool ourselves. Users don’t like reading manuals. Most users read documentation only as a last resort when they are stuck—if they ever read it at all. Users want to get their job done quickly. Moreover, many users don’t like the idea that they need help at all.
Therefore, the best form of assistance is assistance that the user doesn’t even notice as “help.” It’s just around “incidentally” when needed (embedded help).
Do you want to make your products as self-explanatory as possible using embedded help?
I can develop an integrated performance support concept and information solution that goes well beyond standard documentation and basic online help. This includes:
▪the decision about which information can be directly embedded into the user interface (UI / GUI) of your software rather than into separate technical documentation, such as user manuals or online help
▪the decision about how and where this information is displayed
▪a style guide for all texts
▪the standardization and coordination of terminology among the user interface, user manuals, online help, and sales materials
▪writing the texts
