Cherryleaf – Content design and content strategy services

Cherryleaf helps you solve how you create, manage and publish content

Organisations can find it’s taking them too long to create and publish information. They worry how they will manage future requirements. For example: new formats and extra languages.

Cherryleaf’s consultants are experts in technical communication. You’ll get independent advice on information design, information architecture, tools and processes.

Case studies

CREATING API DOCUMENTS WITH WRITERS LOCATED IN DIFFERENT COUNTRIES

Cherryleaf helped a software company in Hungary create hundreds of API user guides. They can publish these as PDFs or online.

Before, they wrote the documents in Word. These took a long time to create, and were inconsistent. They now keep re-usable information in a single place. As a result, it is much easier and faster for them to create new documents. They can create customised manuals for customers, adapted to their bespoke configurations.

More case studies

We see an ongoing role for Cherryleaf as consultants who can help to get better documents out of the vast material we have added to the system. Very importantly, Cherryleaf were able to rapidly respond to our issues with the system and help us understand.

We recently changed our authoring tooling. Cherryleaf came and did a spot of consultation to help us choose something that fit our use cases. I'd absolutely recommend their service if you want some help picking tooling.
