Why Wordsome?

May 2, 2016

Better API documentation means better adoption. No doubt about that. So the question arises, why partner with Wordsome for this critical task? Below, in no particular order, I present a few of the reasons why you should be hiring external expertise for writing your API docs. (Hover on the slide to pause it.)

  • Focus on your core competency
    Focus on your core competency
    Your core competency is software development, not writing API documentation. So why hire when you can easily outsource?
  • Hire professionals for specialized tasks
    Hire professionals for specialized tasks
    Wordsome represents the union of two very different – and sometimes, orthogonal – skill sets: software development and technical writing. We find here a confluence of two very disparate skills. And specialized tasks require specialized skills to fulfill them.
  • We speak the same language
    We speak the same language
    Being software developers ourselves, we speak the same language as you do. And we also know the language that software developers around the world, your targeted market, understand. So why look elsewhere?
  • We’re software developers too
    We’re software developers too
    In addition to being writers, we’re software developers too. So we won’t keep coming back to you to understand every single nitty-gritty of your platform. After all, experience in understanding software systems definitely helps.
  • We write our own code
    We write our own code
    Being coders, we have the expertise in writing code samples and examples, and onboarding tutorials for your platform on our own, without you having to waste precious hours explaining stuff to us. If the need arises, we can roll up our sleeves and make things happen.
  • We understand content management systems
    We understand content management systems
    We have worked with myriad documentation systems over the years, be they wikis or plain vanilla CMS systems. We also have experience working with hosted content services like Confluence and Readme.io, among others. We can even help you roll out your own, self-hosted content system, besides. Furthermore, we can also write and commit code to Github. We know our stuff!
  • We have the right experience
    We have the right experience
    We have been in the business of writing software code for about two decades now, and we have been writing technical content for nearly half of that time. With Wordsome, you get the best of both worlds.
  • You save precious time with us
    You save precious time with us
    With our experience in understanding software systems, you will save a good amount of time onboarding us, since we know when and how to extrapolate to get deeper insights. And saving time equates to saving precious dollars.
  • We take security very seriously
    We take security very seriously
    We understand our customers’ paranoia when it comes to guarding their data, especially when most of it is valuable IP developed painstakingly. We therefore take security very seriously indeed.
  • We operate by a strong set of ethics
    We operate by a strong set of ethics
    When it comes to dealing with clients, we have our own set of ethics by which we operate, cardinal rules of the game if you wish. And we never compromise on these ethics. Never!
