Technical Editing

We have the tools and skills to make all of the documents for your business communications sound professional. When editing or writing content for a project, we always use our graphic design and desktop publishing skills to make sure that your content "looks" as professional as it sounds.

We can satisfy your technical editing needs from a variety of original formats, including HTML, PDF, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Publisher, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, or Microsoft Access. We can help you compile, edit, organize, and/or proofread the content for any of the following documents and more.

Knowledge bases. Knowledge bases are large databases of information composed of small articles. They are often used for technical support or other reference purposes.
Catalogs (both printed or web-based). Catalogs contain a complete listing of items arranged systematically with descriptive details. Typical uses of a catalog are to list products or services such as items for sale or classes.
Newsletters. A newsletter is a small publication containing news of interest chiefly to a special group. Newsletters are a great way to keep in touch with your contacts.
Brochures. Brochures contains descriptive or advertising material and are typically distributed to promote your product or service. Brochures are often called pamphlets.
Training materials or courses. The purpose of training materials or courses is to teach a particular subject. We can help you with your online, CD-ROM based, or in-person training needs including PowerPoint presentations and course books.
Product demonstrations. Product demonstrations show the nature and usage of a particular item. Using a PowerPoint presentation is a common method.
Business plans. Business plans describe the nature of your business in a very organized and methodical manner. They often require summaries in addition to detailed material.
White papers and journal articles. A white paper is a detailed, authoritative report. The government and technical companies often use white papers or journal articles, instead of brochures, to promote a product, as they contain more technical information such as the results of studies or details on the development of the product.
Resumes. A resumes, also called a curriculum vitae, is a short account of one's career and qualifications. Since you usually prepare a resume when you are hoping for a new job, you want your resume to present you as a professional.
