UX writing and UI text are becoming more important within software and websites, particularly as Web-based software applications and mobile apps increase. This can lead to a need for the UX, marketing and technical writing teams to communicate in a common language and to establish common goals, strategies, metrics and vision.

This course teaches the fundamentals of writing UI text for an application. It helps UX developers and technical communicators better understand how to create and write this type of content.

Who is this course for?

This course is for teams who need to provide effective UI text and inline Help in their applications, and who want to develop their skills in this area.
