MadCap Flare Technical Writer
Technical Writing in MadCap Flare?
Sure, No Problem.
Are you looking for a skilled MadCap Flare technical writer? Someone who can hit the ground running, and create interesting and helpful content while taking advantage of Flare’s advanced authoring features?
Then I could be just the man for your job.
I’m a certified MadCap Flare Advanced Developer and I’ve been using Flare for many years, mostly to create HTML5 and PDF outputs.
Why should you choose me as your MadCap Flare technical writer?
- I am productive straightaway. I’m a certified advanced Flare user and know the product.
- I’ve worked on lots of different projects, so will quickly adapt to how you operate.
- I know how to use snippets, variables, and the other cool Flare features that will save you time and money.
- Need something unusual? I can help. I have customised Flare to do things it can’t do out of the box.
- Technical writing expertise. I’ve been a technical writer for 20 years, have a degree in technical communication, and I’m a fellow of the ISTC. So your content is in safe hands.
Note: I don’t offer MadCap Flare training as a formal course, although I am happy to help new users working on the same project. If you want formal training, I recommend Matthew Ellison who operates from Flare Training UAEurope. Alternatively, Armada do excellent courses (I use them for learning about other technical communication products). You can find Armada’s Flare training here: http://www.armada.co.uk/madcap-flare-training-course.
I’ll Use Flare to Create your PDFs and HTML5 Online Help
MadCap Flare is a leading HAT (Help Authoring Tool), and it can output to many different formats, including HTML5 online help and PDF documents. It uses a topic-based approach, which means I create your content as individual ‘chunks’ of information, that can be shared and reused between different projects. This is an important content reuse feature, as it can significantly reduce your documentation costs, especially when it comes to updating the content and having new content translated.
If you hire me as your MadCap Flare technical writer, I can complement your existing team of writers, update your content, or create a whole new project from scratch. I know how to use Flare’s advanced authoring features, including:
- Conditional content
- Global projects
- Master Pages and Page Layouts
- Concept Links
I’ll use these features and my skills as a technical writer to make sure your content is clear, accessible, and as reusable as possible. I have a page dedicated to my approach to technical writing, if you’d like to find out more.
Examples of Simple MadCap Flare Projects
Most of my ‘real’ work in Flare can’t be shared due to non-disclosure agreeements. But I have created a couple of examples from previous MadCap Flare technical writing projects. Feel free to take a look. These are simple ‘out of the box’ outputs that don’t use any other scripting or Foundation grid tricks (but I have created customised outputs in the past).
