Training Workshop for Technical Communicators

About the workshop

Write2Users (W2U) hosts the internationally acclaimed and well-established Technical Communication – Fundamentals workshop at the Business Center Winghouse in Ørestaden, Copenhagen. The basis of the workshop was developed back in 2007-2010 by Mette Nyberg, Senior Technical Writer at e-Boks A/S (DK) and Per Frederiksen (W2U). The first commercial workshop was run in 2011 in front of 12 technical communicators from SimCorp A/S (DK). Since then, the workshop has attracted many technical communicators from all over Europe. The feedback has been tremendous. Even very experienced technical communicators have brought back tons of knowledge and inspiration to their daily work.

Testimonials

Thank you for an inspiring workshop. After only two days of training, I have made large changes and improvements to my processes and language usage in my technical documentation, and I am able to structure my tasks much better using e.g. the whiteboarding method.

Maiken BlokSole Writer at TimeLog A/S

“This was really the one of the best workshops I ever attended. All aspects of the tech writer´s work were clearly described and explained – even a planning and final quality assurance process.”
