4 Technical Writing Resource Links

Group: Technical Writing

Topic: General, Getting Started, etc.

Social Media in Technical Communication -

Hi everybody, i have written an article about social media in technical communication. This has been published in Jan 2010 issue of tcworld German Magazine. Please read my article and let me know your feedback.



Topic: MS Compiled Windows Help (.CHM)

Help and Manual: A great authoring tool -

Help and Manual is a mature, and reasonably-priced, authoring tool for WinHelp, Compiled HTML Help (CHM); plus PDF, and Word documentation.

Under the covers, your authoring project is maintained in XML.

It can convert existing help and documentation from a number of formats, and it is very author-friendly.

HelpScribble - an amazing tool -

We're all familiar with program help systems. At Prestwood, of course, we need to author them for many of the applications we create.

There are many help authoring tools available, and HelpScribble is one of my two favorites.

Now, even though you may not need to create program help systems, help files, on their own, can be a great way to organize and convey all manner of information. Because they can contain a table of contents, an index, search capabilities, hyperlinks from one topic to another, and embedded graphics, they can be a wonderful way to document many kinds of complex information - say a training manual for new workers - in just about any industry.

The people at Just Great Software like to say that, "If you can scribble, you can create help systems." They're right: HelpScribble makes it about as easy as it could get. Naturally, HelpScribble includes an extensive help system of its own, which will teach you everything you need to know.

HelpScribble can produce

  • WinHelp (.hlp files),
  • Compiled HTML Help (.chm files),
  • Rich Text Format (.rtf files) for printed manuals, and
  • Multi-page HTML output - suitable for web help.

At only $99, this is one of the best software bargains I've encountered.
