increases readability and usability. Technical writers may employ six design strategies to plan and create technical
1. Arrangement, refers to the order and organization of visual elements so that readers can see
their structure - how they cohere in groups, how they differ from one another, how they create layers and hierarchies.
2. Emphasis: refers to how a document displays important sections through prominence or intensity. This enables the
technical writer to consider how they can show readers important sections, warning, useful tips, etc. through the use
of placement, bolding, colour, and type size.
3. Clarity: refers to strategies used to help the receiver decode
the message, to understand it quickly and completely, and, when necessary, to react without ambivalence.
4. Conciseness: refers to the "visual bulk and intricacy" of the design, e.g., the number of headings and lists, lines
and boxes, detail of drawings and data displays, size variations, ornateness, and text spacing.
5. Tone: This is the sound or feel of a document. In addition to language choice, technical writers set the tone

Our Methodology (The Document Development Life Cycle)
A technical publication's development life cycle typically consists of five phases, coordinated with the overall product
Phase 1: Information gathering and planning
Phase 2: Content specification
Phase 3: Content development and implementation
Phase 4: Production
Phase 5: Evaluation
The document development life cycle typically consists of six phase, depending on the organization.
Audience profiling (identify target audience)
User task analysis (analyse tasks and information based on target audience)
Information architecture (design based on analysis, how to prepare document)
Content development (develop/prepare the document)
Technical and editorial reviews (review with higher level personnel managers, etc.)
Formatting and publishing (publish the document).
This is similar to the software development life cycle.
Well-written technical documents usually follow formal standards or guidelines. Many companies have internal corporate
style guides that cover specific corporate issues such as logo use, branding, and other aspects of corporate style.
The Microsoft Manual of Style for Technical Publications is typical of these.
Our final production typically follows an inspection checklist to ensure the quality and uniformity of the published product.
