Technical Publishing & Editing

Convert Complex to Simple

Count on the professional technical editors at Ken Cook Co. to communicate your technical product information and complex process in ways that make sense to your users.

Save time, boost production

We deliver technical content that saves valuable production time among engineers and subject matter experts. Let us handle the technical editing so your busy engineers, subject-matter experts, and marketing teams can focus on their regular tasks. Sure, we’ll get to know them and check in as needed, but they’re free to focus on their “day job” once we execute the job.   

As expert technical communicators, we’ll explain the features, benefits, and proper operation of your latest products and communicate your complex processes to your users. We’ll provide easy-to-follow directions, detailed parts lists, screenshots and other helpful images so your users know exactly what actions to take in the next step. We believe in incorporating simple language, in getting to the point quickly and in using active voice to give text immediacy.

Our technical editing will reflect your one-of-a-kind style, voice, terminology, and feeling (which are part of your branding and set you apart from your competition).

Count on us to also collaborate with illustrators to deliver quality illustrations originating from CAD files or photographs.

We can provide technical editing for:

  • Service, installation and owner’s manuals
  • Parts catalogs
  • Training programs
  • Marketing brochures
  • Other technical documentation projects (online and print)

Prioritize Operator Responsibility, Safety messaging, Maintenance and operation procedure

We specialize in emphasizing the importance of operator knowledge and responsibility and in educating the operator. As expert technical communicators, we write clear procedures that users must follow to operate, transport and store a product and to keep it in proper working condition. We offer detailed charts, timelines, and service schedules so users know what to maintain and when to do it. Our publications will help your users troubleshoot problems and identify symptoms, possible causes and real-world solutions.
