Three IBM Press eBooks bring together today's best techniques for creating clearer, more usable, more effective technical communication. The IBM Style Guide: Conventions for Writers and Editors distills IBM's best wisdom for developing higher-quality content across all media, authors, delivery mechanisms, and geographic locations. You'll find up-to-the minute guidance on topic-based writing; writing for diverse media and global audiences; formatting, organizing, structuring, and linking information; maximizing accessibility; documenting interfaces and procedures; and much more. Next, in DITA Best Practices: A Roadmap for Writing, Editing, and Architecting in DITA , three pioneering implementers show how to use DITA to maximize the value of technical documentation and offer a complete roadmap for successful DITA adoption, implementation, and usage. The authors answer crucial questions "official" DITA documents ignore, including: "Where do you start?" and "How do you avoid the pitfalls?" Discover proven best practices for developing effective topics, short descriptions, and content architecture, plus "in-the-trenches" solutions for ensuring quality implementations and accurate, cost-effective content conversion. Finally, Developing Quality Technical Information: A Handbook for Writers and Editors , SecondEdition, presents today's most systematic, well-proven approach to creating great documentation. Learn how to focus on the right tasks and topics; say more with fewer words; use organization to deliver faster access; streamline and improve reviews; and much more. Packed with before-and-after examples, illustrations, and checklists, this book addresses crucial topics ranging from internationalization to retrievability to visual effectiveness.
