Here are the raw results from our short survey into chatbots. We’ll be looking at these in more detail, and comparing it to similar surveys, in a future episode of the Cherryleaf podcast.
Our third survey! This one is on the most important issues organisations face with regard to writing policies and procedures – whether these factors are important for your particular business.
It’s should only take about four minutes to complete.
As with the other surveys we’re running, we’ll be sharing our findings on the Cherryleaf blog and Cherryleaf podcast. We might also use the information to help shape our policies and procedures writing training course. Any information will be anonymised, and we won’t be publishing individual responses.
Here’s a link to the survey:
We’re running a second survey – this one looks into the business drivers for technical documentation. Whether these factors are important for your particular business.
It should take about three minutes to complete.
We’ll be sharing our findings on the Cherryleaf blog and Cherryleaf podcast. We might also present our results at a conference later in the year.

Please take part in our two minute survey into chatbots.
We want to discover who is involved in preparing content for chatbots, as well as who is developing chatbots.
We’ll be sharing our findings on the Cherryleaf blog and Cherryleaf podcast.
We might also present our results at a conference later in the year.
Here are some more findings from our recent survey of European technical communicators. These relate to non-UK salaries.
We didn’t get enough data to draw many conclusions, so we’ve provided the responses in the table below. We converted all of the salaries to Euro, to make it easier to compare.
Here are some more findings from our recent survey of European technical communicators. These relate to UK salaries. Most of the people who responded to our survey were based in the UK, so we are able to look at these in more detail than other countries.
We asked people to describe their seniority levels: Junior, Line staff/Standard, Senior/Team Lead, and Manager. These are often a key factor in the salary someone earns.
Excluding managers, the mean was £45,338.
Are the figures accurate?
The sample size was fairly small (n=61), so we do need to look at this information with some caution.
Data on the Technical Author salaries offered on the main IT jobs boards in the six months to August 2017 show a UK median annual salary of £50,000 (with a median of £47,000 for jobs offered outside of London). They also show a 25% increase in median salary offered (17.5% increase for jobs offered outside of London) since August 2016. That’s based on 167 job adverts – again a fairly small population. We also need to bear in mind the salaries in job vacancies can be higher than those for people who have been a job for a long time, and the number of Technical Author job adverts has decreased in the last 24 months.
Here are some of the findings from our recent survey of European technical communicators. These relate to skills and experience. We’ll look at the findings in more details on the Cherryleaf podcast, and we’ll post the data on salaries in later blog posts.
