Language and grammar

When presenting information it is an utmost priority to do so in a clear, concise way. By doing so, the information will be easy to understand and present little to no difficulties for someone who does not have knowledge in that field to grasp what is being presented.

Abbreviations #

With abbreviations it is important to note the following:

1. Don’t use internal abbreviations on information that is for everyone.

2. Don’t use abbreviations to represent emotions or ideas.

3. Don’t use abbreviations like i.e. and e.g – not everyone knows them.

4. Don’t be vague when presenting an object/product.

Don’t Use: i.e., LMFAO, GTFO, Dev., it is

Do Use: for example, laughing, leave, Developer, the service is

Bold #

With using bolden words, it is typically used for the following reasons:

1. Instructions – Click on Developer > Answers

2. Buttons – Bring attention to the button and the outcome of interacting

3. Headers – Draw the client’s eyes to read this, allows for interaction

Under the circumstance there is an inability to use bold on the product you are working on, the best next resort would be to use italics in place of the bolden words. Although there won’t be as much attention-grabbing from these italicized words, it will still do better than plain text.

Capitalization #

The usage of capitalization is typically due to present a product title or header.

Extreme Don’t Do: tHiS iS wHaT LeCtRoN CoSmIc GuArD iS

Do: This is what Lectron Cosmic Guard is.
