Technical communication

Imagery

An image is not just an image. Should it be vector or bitmap? Should it be SVG, EPS, JPG or PNG? Do you want captions on top and maybe even translate the images.


If you need clipart, logos, icons that were redrawn and finetuned for your documentation we can do that.


If you want to incorporate video, then there's also a lot to consider. We use and are experts in, TechSmith Camtasia

DESIGN

Typically the design is something for the marketing department and the professional graphical people.


You'll be surprised how much of that can be incorporated into technical documents.


It is certainly needed, but you have to come to terms with the fact that in marketing, the ration between content and design is 10:90, while it is 90:10 in technical documents.

Simplified content

Writing good content is far more critical than you think. You need to write with consistency. You need to transform often complex accessible content into easy-to-read content.


In doing so, there are two fundamental principles: writing simplified and writing minimalistic.


The first secure consistency in your language, the other cuts down your content to a minimum. Doing both save you a lot of resources.

Technical writing

This term has become synonymous with content related to describing how to use and describe technical equipment procedures.


It is so much more - and maybe slightly different.


We believe individuals can transform often complicated stuff into easy-to-read material. Shortly and concisely. It does not have to about technical products. Anything goes.


Another term which we use a lot is adherence. This means that any element anywhere in your content is somehow "glued" to another element. So if this element is moved, you know exactly what happens to all other elements. You do not have to look. It is built-in your setup to control such things. 

Courses

Unfortunately, a lot of companies regard technical writing as "not so important". So the persons who are employed to write are not qualified enough.


We have a fantastic series of courses, from basic to advanced, where we teach and talk about how you become a technical writer and how you become an even better technical writer - if you have been writing for many years.


The courses were designed by Mette Nyberg and the late Per Frederiksen.


TBRO is proud to continue with this material. Some of the best on the market.


Translation

Intricately related to most technical communication is translating your material.


This area is so vast and big that we have partnered with ProStrategy. Experts in the field.


Here is enough to say that if your technical documents are not meticulously designed and written, your invoices from your translation agency can seem to be somewhat "bloated".


There is no need for this.
TBRO has partnered up with ProStrategy from Sweden in this area. Their expertise is second to none.
