Writing instructions for products you can hold in your hand isn’t the same as writing for the software industry. In many cases, you’re creating paper documents to fit in small boxes, so page layouts matter.

This session addresses the unique needs of writers in the manufacturing industry, but these tips also apply to writing for the web and mobile devices.

In this session, you’ll learn about space-saving strategies, including the following:

  • Writing concisely
  • Positioning tables and figures effectively
  • Using multilingual layouts
