  • The DITA debate

    I’m coming to the conclusion that there are specific types of content that suit a DITA environment, and that the converse is also true: DITA is not the best solution for every content type. (DITA is the Darwin Information Typing Architecture, an XML architecture for designing, writing, managing, and publishing information.) “Well, duh,” you may say. I’ve never worked in a DITA environment, but I’ve attended two indepth training courses and a number of case studies that walked through successful DITA implementations.

    by Willam Van Weelden     If you have attempted to create printed documentation with RoboHelp, there is a good chance you have run into a macro error. RoboHelp uses Word for printed documentation, and this error occurs if Word's security settings don't allow macros.You can enable macros in Word, but that may not be enough. Some Help Authors receive unspecified errors when generating printed documentation even with macros enabled. To solve this, RoboHelp projects must be added to Word's trusted locations.

    This week I attended the annual conference of the Australian Society for Technical Communication (NSW), ASTC (NSW) 2014. This post is a summary of the conference, with links to individual blog posts on each session, and a thanks to the organisers. The conference took place over two days, Friday and Saturday, in Sydney. There were 40 to 50 attendants each day. Because one of the days was a weekday and the other a Saturday, a slightly different set of people attended each day. This has been a characteristic of this conference over the years. I think it’s a clever design, giving more…

  • Respect and influence - Proven strategies for technical writers

    16 Oct 2014 | 11:31 am
    One of the most common complaints raised by tech writers is that we just don't receive the respect we deserve. Like primary school teachers, janitors, truck drivers, and other professions that make the world go around, we often find ourselves defending the value of our work. We even tell tales of baking brownies as a form of bribery to put subject matter experts in a cooperative mood. Too often, our documentation is perceived as a necessary expense instead of an investment. But it doesn't have to be this way. There are ways to infiltrate the minds of your coworkers and make an indelible…
  • Leveraging multiple skills - Interview with Matt Lorenzi, Technical Writer / Illustrator

    22 Sep 2014 | 12:16 pm
    Technical writers often talk about the need to wear many hats in order to complete their projects. In today’s interview, we chat with Matt Lorenzi, a Technical Writer / Illustrator with a keen sense of how to leverage multiple skill sets and turn them into a career. So grab yourself a fresh cup of coffee and enjoy the discussion. Now, on with the questions! Q: Many people in the field focus on either technical writing or illustration. You've chosen to do both. Why? A: I started out with a solid background in graphic design and production art. I was looking for a new avenue career-wise, as I…
  • The future of tech comm: Machines that teach you how to use them

    29 Aug 2014 | 2:13 pm
    Our devices are getting smarter. Shouldn't our documentation do the same? One of the greatest problems manufacturers face is teaching consumers how to use their products. As I mentioned in a previous post, 95 percent of devices returned to stores actually work. That's a serious pain point and expense for manufacturers. Smart phones, tablets, and other computer-like devices are naturally moving in the direction of simple, digital instructions for setup. For example, I recently purchased a Kindle tablet for my family. The device guided me through the setup process one step at a time. It was…
  • Technophobia, and other reasons consumers won't read the manual

    28 Aug 2014 | 11:18 am
    Fear is a powerful motivator. But it can be downright dangerous when it deters consumers from understanding how to use technology in a safe manner. Plato said it best... "We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light." This is as true in technical communication as it is in philosophy; there are dangers to not understanding things that can be understood if we make an effort. However, as documented in this post from Engadget, "95 percent of returned gadgets still work and Americans don't read manuals." Lets think about this…
  • Is this the oldest instruction manual ever? (Bet you can't guess what it's for!)

    4 Mar 2014 | 1:20 pm
    The humble instruction manual has a long history. Throughout time, technical writers have been plying their trade in a variety of industries, but without the clear job description we tout today. However, the lack of a formal job description in the field didn't stop them from writing fascinating instructions for others to follow. Early variations on instruction manuals include guides on witch hunting, performing sacred services, and even wrestling. In fact, the earliest written guide to grappling dates back to nearly 100 A.D. The Greek text offers plenty of user friendly tips for throwing your…

    I’ve previously blogged about how I’ve purchased and used T-mobile SIM cards when in the US (search this blog for T-mobile). Well, things have moved on since then and today I was able to purchase a 30-day T-mobile SIM  at Sydney International Airport,  which gives me the usual ‘pay per day’ services I’ve previously had (unlimited US calls,  text,  and data) PLUS free texts to Australia AND free calls to Australian landlines. And for less than the pay per day rate ($80 AUD compared to $90+ USD). As I’ll be away for about 31 to 32 days,…

    7 Oct 2014 | 2:30 pm
    Oops! Read the last item first, then the second last one… I think they meant ‘metric’. It’s all about trust. How can I trust them to have ‘removed typing mistakes’ in the app when they make another one in their list of changes? Did I download the app? Nope, for several reasons, but this one was the clincher. That, and the overuse of capitals for words that aren’t proper nouns.

    I stayed at the lovely Sydney Hilton when I spoke at a conference held there last month. When I was checking the hotel’s website prior to my trip, I clicked a link to a spa business on (or very close to) the premises. The link is so tied into the Sydney Hilton’s website that I initially assumed it was part of the hotel’s services. This spa business promotes itself as high-end and their prices reflect that. Their alliance with the Sydney Hilton also attests to that. However, I didn’t try any of their spa treatments. Why? Well, cost was one reason, but the main reason…

    Scott Nesbitt
    7 Oct 2014 | 7:56 am
    Note: This post was originally published, in a slightly different form, here. These days, if you’re a freelance technical communicator then you might be working offsite with clients and maybe collaborators who are across town, in another part of the country, or even elsewhere in the world. In that case, you’ll need to regularly keep in touch with those clients or collaborators. That could be for planning sessions, catch-up sessions, or project updates. Sure, you can do that using email, instant messaging (IM), or over the phone. But email and IM really break down when more than a…

    Note: This post was originally published, in a slightly different form, here. It’s great to see more and more people, including technical communicators, blogging. It’s a great way to share ideas, techniques, and opinions. One question I’ve been hearing, and have been asked, a lot lately is What’s the perfect length for a blog post? And, to be honest, I don’t think there is a perfect length for a blog post. That goes against some of what’s considered conventional wisdom, I know. Take, for example, what a speaker at a blogger’s meetup told the group. He…
  • Taking a look at Letting Go of the Words

    Scott Nesbitt

    Note: This post was originally published here. Writing with fewer words isn’t anything new. For decades, writers have been exhorted to write tightly, to pare down their writing, to use words with economy and prudence. But writing tightly has become a necessity. Many people reading on the web are impatient. They don’t want to wade through long swaths of text (hence tl;dr). They want you get to the point and give them what they want and need quickly. That’s the main thrust of Letting Go of the Words by Janice Redish. While it’s aimed at people writing for the web, you…

    For most of yesterday, I listened to the CBC’s radio coverage of the shooting at Parliament. The CBC radio coverage was excellent, as is usually the case with the CBC. I didn’t see the TV coverage but it’s attracted some notice in US sites, because it was so much better than what passes for TV journalism in the US these days. Here’s an article from Mediabistro.com. For hours this afternoon, Canada’s CBC News covered the breaking news of at least three shooting incidents in Ottawa. Led by veteran anchor Peter Mansbridge, the rolling coverage was smart, careful, and…
  • Escape from Microsoft Word

    Keith
    21 Oct 2014 | 4:01 pm
    Here’s an interesting perspective on Microsoft Word from a writer who is not a technical writer and who found himself baffled by some of Word’s formatting idiosyncrasies.  The problem he ran into would not have occurred if he had used a character style for italics instead of applying direct formatting. Of course, Microsoft continues to make it harder and more complex to use styles properly with every release of Word, so I won’t be too hard on him. I’ve been vaguely aware of Word’s Platonic ideas since I learned, years ago, that I had to create a new section when I…

    Here’s a harrowing article by an AmeriCare relief worker about what it’s like working at the epicentre of the Ebola outbreak in Monrovia, Liberia. When traveling to areas devastated by earthquakes and violent storms, the physical damage is often apparent even before you step off the plane. But here in Liberia where the death toll has surpassed 2,000 and continues to climb, there are no flattened buildings or tent camps filled with survivors. Signs of the crisis are more understated. In front of every building, hand washing stations spill out a diluted chlorine solution. Police at…

    It’s likely that the post on the Geologic Society of America by a couple of Canadian geologists will likely get taken up by all the usual suspects in the climate change denial industry.  Fortunately there’s a strong rebuttal, which the deniers will likely ignore, but at least it’s out there. This is quite false, as I found out for myself. My initial reaction many years ago to hearing about climate change was one of disbelief, mixed with a strong suspicion that the climate forecasters had neglected to take the lessons of Earth history into account. I soon found out that I…
