A presentation at Writer.com presents: (Modern) Taxonomy for UX by Jonathon Colman
When we write for digital products—whether it’s interface or documentation—the words we choose have to remain intentional and consistent over time.
But it’s a near-impossible challenge when there are so many people across an org who write for the user journey.
Writer is bringing together an incredible line-up of content leaders for a half-day event about:
…of consistent language at your company.
Battles over ‘log in’ vs ‘sign in’ and feature names are just the start. Users abandoning your sign up flow midway or not finding what they need on a support site are taxonomy problems, too.
Writer is hosting tech industry leaders who have figured out how to stand up a taxonomy and terminology strategy that drives user engagement, company revenue, and internal productivity.
The half-day workshop is free, and virtual. Join us on Nov 9.
The following resources were mentioned during the presentation or are useful additional information.
