WRITING - Operating instructions (Manual / Package insert / Operator manual), Installation instructions, Maintenance instructions, Short guides, Training guides


Operating instructions are an essential and elementary component of any useful product. The decisive factor is that operating instructions must help the user to comprehend and use your product.

 

We create your product's instructions so that they are in full compliance with all applicable legal requirements, with particular focus on the valid machinery directives.

After familiarizing ourselves with your product, we create the operating instruction "framework" as a table of contents, so that you can make sure all relevant content is covered.

Content is then created based on the information and text available and from our own product research and testing. This product investigation and familiarization phase can be conducted at your location or at Scriptor's site using a prototype or sample product (particularly suited for software or documentation for small products).

 

We use several software packages to assist us in creating operating instructions, including MS Word, Adobe FrameMaker, Adobe Indesign and Quark Express. Our choice of a creation program is made based on your particular desires and requirements. A suitable program is needed when creating a single-source documentation for different output forms (such as a manual and online help). We will match this program to best fit your specifications.
