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.

Dave Hughes, HCC Embedded CEO API documentation writing

I worked with Cherryleaf on a project for the European Community made up of a consortium of different companies and nationalities. Their communications skills were excellent and capacity to speak both fluent technical jargon and business English are truly superb.

John Fintan Galvin, IO1 Technical writing services

As an IT team, we had an array of support documentation for systems and services that we'd always struggled to have a consistent format, style and structure for. The course delivered by Ellis Pratt really clarified the best practices to use and answered many of the questions we had.

We were so satisfied with the service provided by Ellis that we contacted Cherryleaf to create an exemplary piece of documentation for one of our systems, with an aim to using the documentation as a template for our other services going forwards. Ginny Critcher was always punctual, polite and efficient in all her work. Where there were any doubts or suggestions, Ginny would provide insight into what the best approach would be in an eloquent and thoughtful manner.

Alan Oakden, MyScience Training

Cherryleaf is one of the best technical authoring houses in the business, and profoundly knowledgeable, professional and approachable. Highly recommended for anyone requiring top-notch documentation or training services.

We also work with Markdown-based tools and Microsoft Word. We can set up the writing process so it suits your needs, standards and technologies.


Online Help can save you money

80% of the lifetime cost of software occurring after the sale. So providing good online Help can be more important that you might think. Try out Cherryleaf’s online cost reduction calculator, you can see how much money you could save.
