Need to write your first user guide but don’t know where to start? Maybe these templates can help. For less than 10 dollars, they’ll save you a lot of time, improve your writing, and help deliver a professional-looking document. What’s not to like about that?
For over twenty years, we’ve written user guides for IBM, the US Dept. of Justice, NEC, and Intel. We’ve also helped people get started in technical documentation. To do this, we’ve created simple to follow user guide templates with checklists, forms, and guidelines. These will help you get started and check the quality of your work when you’re finished. You can use the templates to create other manuals, getting started guides and different types of technical documentation. And, of course, you can modify them to make different kinds of documents. There are no restrictions or limitations on the MS Word documents.
These templates work on MS Word 2003 all the way to the highest version of MS Word and Apple Mac computers. You can even open them in Google Docs. The templates were designed by our partners at Klariti Ltd.
