Technical book "Grundlagen der Technischen Dokumentation" (Fundamentals of Technical Documentation)
In October 2010 the technical book "Grundlagen der Technischen Dokumentation: Anleitungen verständlich und Normgerecht erstellen" by Lars Kothes was published.
This book provides practical expertise and process knowledge for the creation of instructions. On the basis of the relevant laws, guidelines and standards, a detailed content model for instructions is presented. The author describes in detail the process of creating documentation, from project planning to translation, and provides an insight into the daily work of a Technical Editor.
Chapters with a practical approach and many examples deal with the special requirements for the formulation of guidance texts and their functional and target group-oriented design.
The selection and correct use of visualisation options are dealt with, as well as the modular creation of instructions and the special features of the US market.
