Help Begins with the GUI: TC Meets R&D

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Do you ever feel that you are stuck “perfuming the pig” (or writing user assistance for a terrible interface)? Are you embarrassed by poor usability or sloppy mistakes in your company’s products? The truth is that text in the interface is content! And who are the content experts if not us? In this session, learn how to map your linguistic and usability skills to early prototypes, help developers map functionality to user personas, plus edit text strings for correctness, accuracy, consistency, and usefulness. Join us to build on your linguistic and UX (usability) skills and help developers create better software in order to create an interface that requires less Help and fewer awkward explanations.

Let's talk about writing, editing, UX, L10N, and more. I've been in TC since 1980 so I'm ready to swap stories from the trenches!
