TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I have a slight problem where I have to have two different types of terms
for two very similar functions on the same screen. In order to keep end
user confusion at bay, we are thinking of using the following:
- select a device
- choose a device line (The line has the device at the far left of the row
with further information across. When selecting this line, a different
dialog will show and the user is able to change things inside it.)
One of my coworkers suggested "placing a check in the check box" instead
of "select a device" but this sounds unnecessarily wordy to me and I think
the two options listed previously are more comprehensible to an end user.
