Product designers are often too close to their products to be able to see them through the eyes of a user or operator, and therefore cannot create suitable information themselves. Furthermore, they may forget that many users and operators only understand English as a second language. Users and operators may have very different backgrounds, experiences and skills, so it is important to make sure that all of them properly understand. At Etteplan we are a fresh pair of eyes, encountering your product for the first time. We ask the questions to understand your product, then we can explain to users and operators exactly what they need to know.

We are adept at recognizing risks and including appropriate warnings and cautions to ensure that operators and users stay safe.

At Etteplan we have our own technical illustration professionals who can easily illustrate and support individual tasks or create completely pictorial instructions. Considering that operators and users may have diverse language skills, illustrations are particularly effective at conveying information in a way that is easily-accessible to all.

We produce materials for all sorts of media types, including paper, tablets, smartphones and virtual reality headsets. Tablets and smartphones are a great way for users and operators to have information readily available at their fingertips, without the burden of carrying paper manuals around.

Our technical communication professionals have a vast range of skills and experience. We can work with all well-known publishing packages and structured documentation tools. You can choose whether we work with your existing tools and templates or whether we start from scratch.
