In-house Training: Technical Documentation
Studying technical communication at university takes several years. It would be unrealistic to promise that we can cover this full spectrum in a short training. However, we don’t have to. Even what you can learn in a day or two dramatically improves the quality of your documents.
Do you or your staff need to write some technical documentation, but you are not trained technical writers?
Adapted to your individual requirements, my in-house training on technical documentation / on-site training on technical documentation teaches you exactly those techniques from which you benefit the most. You can hardly use one or two days of training more efficiently.
The questions covered by the internal training can include, for example:
▪What content should go into the technical documentation? What can I drop?
▪What documents should I provide?
▪How should I structure each document?
▪How can I make sure that readers will find what they are looking for?
▪How can I make sure that readers can fully understand my texts and that they can follow my instructions without making mistakes?
▪What do I need to pay attention to when adding pictures?
▪How can I create a professionally looking, appealing layout?
▪Which tools can make creating technical documentation easier and more productive?
▪How should I best organize the work? Both my own work but also the whole workflow including reviews, translations, and production?
▪Personal certificate of participation
▪Individually compiled training materials depending on what’s covered by the training
▪Technical Writers’ Companion
