A user guide or user's guide, also commonly known as a manual, is a technical communication document intended to give assistance to people using a particular system. It is usually written by a technical writer, although user guides are written by programmers, product or project managers, or other technical staff, particularly in smaller companies.

User guides are most commonly associated with electronic goods, computer hardware and software.

Most user guides contain both a written guide and the associated images. In the case of computer applications, it is usual to include screenshots of the human-machine interface, and hardware manuals often include clear, simplified diagrams. The language used is matched to the intended audience, with jargon kept to a minimum or explained thoroughly.

The sections of a user’s guide often include:

  • A cover page
  • A title page and copyright page
  • A preface, containing details of related documents and information on how to navigate the user guide
  • A contents page
  • A guide on how to use at least the main functions of the system
  • A troubleshooting section detailing possible errors or problems that may occur, along with how to fix them
  • A FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
  • Where to find further help, and contact details
  • A glossary and, for larger documents, an index

Area of concern of user's guide translation involves technical writing, or particularly, texts containing extensive terminology. Essence of user's guide translation is also a creative technical writing style rather than a reproductive transfer process. It involves the translation of a range of specialized text types, which requires a comprehensive knowledge of the subject and competence in the relevant terminology. To deal with technical texts, our technical translators have competence in text structure of both source and target languages, which would enable them to be technical writers, in addition to knowledge of subject and terminology.

For us, style is important in technical translation. Editors working for Turkish Translation Services cooperate with our translators to express the translated text in a clear, simple and conscise manner. 

Turkish Translation Services recruits technical translators with attention. 

Our technical translation expertise is deep and comprehensive, and the list of language combinations handled by us is even longer and more diverse, however; one factor is the same in all technical translation tasks: professionalism.
