What's it about?
The editorial guide – a helpful tool for the quality- and time-optimised creation of technical documentation.
It contains a multitude of specifications for structure, layout, writing style, image creation, as well as terminology and translation. Company processes concerning documentation can also be content. The editorial guide should be structured and built up in such a way that it makes it easier for new employees to learn and it can serve as a reference work for experienced Technical Editors.
We answer the questions of what content an editorial guide should contain, how it is created and introduced, and also how it remains up-to-date. Practical examples and tips & tricks are not overlooked.
