Proofreading tips

28Feb08

Inspired by a brochure I saw yesterday, here is some text to look out for before publishing your new documentation or product specs:

1.) “Need this updated.”

2.) “This can’t be right. Didn’t we fix this before?”

3.) “Clean this up before anyone sees it.”

If you’ve ever let this sort of thing leak out in your documentation or website, you know how embarassing it can be. My recommendation: highlight any placeholder text in a bright color like pink or purple, so it’s easy to see what needs to be dealt with in the final revision phase.
