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.
We are currently reviewing our documentation processes and are looking to get some feedback about how other teams/companies handle reviewing their documentation.
Do you have a process for reviewing/testing/proofreading documentation?
What do you review in the documentation? Content, grammar, layout, style (both wording and/or applying templates), or functionality of the Help (other documentation)?
Who reviews the documentation? Another technical writer, editor, proofreader, SME?
Do you use any sort of defecting tracking software?
Do you provide the reviewer with anything explaining the changes in the documentation?
Any information is much appreciated!
