Feedback, Please! - Part 2: Building a Web Help Platform to Get the Crowd Involved

“No one reads documentation, and nobody gives feedback on it.” This phrase is bad news for technical communicators – but it’s not the whole story. What actually happens in reality hinges on the way we manage and distribute technical content. (Protip: Host it on the web and invite everyone to get involved). This is the second part in our blog post series https://www.k15t.com/blog/2015/07/feedback-please-why-technical-writing-shouldn-t-be-a-one-way-street about the benefits of crowd-enabled documentation using a collaborative approach. In this post you’ll learn how to get readers’ feedback on documentation easily by building collaborative web-based help content that allows technical communicators to elevate the quality of their work to the next level.

Feedback, Please! - Why Technical Writing Shouldn't Be a One-Way Street

For a long time, technical writing was like driving down a one-way street. We’ve sent information into one direction, and nothing came back. But since the age of the Web 2.0, this approach is no longer a best practice. Today, being a technical writer means to communicate and to interact with everyone involved – including our readers. Building documentation heavily depends on feedback, and it’s an iterative process – more like a traffic circle. New processes require new technology – it’s time to move from publishing tools to collaboration platforms. This blogpost is part of a series about feedback in technical communication, In this article, read why receiving feedback is crucial to create helpful technical content and how a web-based collaboration platform can enable both internal feedback and customer feedback.

One Page Template, Multiple Languages

Today, I'd like to share with you a little secret about Scroll Translations. It’s the Confluence add-on which lets you manage Confluence content in multiple languages within a single space. This makes it simple to add page translations. But how about page templates and blueprints? Does the same apply to them? The answer is yes. It's not only possible to create multilingual page templates – it’s easy. In this blogpost, I'll show you how to modify the troubleshooting blueprint (or any other page template) and make it speak in foreign tongues.

Migrating Legacy Content - Best Practices for Importing HTML Pages Into Confluence

Bringing people together in a collaboration platform like Atlassian Confluence also means transferring your legacy content from multiple information silos. These repositories often contain important information that you can’t afford to leave by the wayside when building a new corporate knowledge base. In many cases, legacy content is only available as HTML files, such as online help resources or intranet pages. Is there a way to bring these assets into Confluence efficiently? Yes – but there is no one-size-fits-all method. There are three main approaches to importing a collection of static HTML pages. Your individual needs will determine which is best for you.
