Cherryleaf writes clear and simple information your users will love

Venn diagram showing how Cherryleaf can help end users

You reduce costs when users solve problems for themselves

Cherryleaf creates instructional content that helps people use a product or complete a task. It can stop them getting stuck, frustrated and making mistakes.

The information our Technical Authors create can also attract prospects to your website. That’s because many people search the web for information on how to solve their problems.

It also helps convert your trial users into paying clients, and it can reduce your support team’s workload.

You work hard to win your customers. Don’t let them down with poor information.

Policy and procedures writing services

Clear company procedures can make your staff more efficient, reduce errors and lower costs.

Topic based writing means you can re-use content

Writing something only once, and re-using it in many places, gives you the opportunity to save valuable writing time. This approach also reduces the chances of having variations of the same topic that are inconsistent or contradict each other. It can make it easier to update content, too.

Cherryleaf has lots of experience in writing fragments of content in self-contained topics. We also teach this approach on our DITA, Foundations of Technical Writing, and Writing Policies and Procedures courses.

I attended a job interview which included a written exercise where I had to jot down how I would go about designing and presenting information for the users of the service unit I was applying to. I could not believe my luck, it was as if the interviewer had designed it with the contents of this course in mind, and, as a result, I got the job!

Amber A. Technical Author/technical writing online training course

Excellent over-view and will be useful for practical application. Much food for thought – useful for starting ideas on improving (the) existing approach to Help files.

Advanced technical writing & new trends in technical communication training

I found the course material very relevant to the day's training. Very pleased I took part.
