Microcopy is the text that makes up a large portion of the interfaces we surround us with.
Its power is often overlooked, but getting it right can actually make or break your UI.
Using consistent and clear labels and making sure you're using the words that fit the user best is just as important as the component you use or how you lay things out on the screen.
In this talk UX designer Andreas and content writers Shweta and Vendula will show how you can collaborate across professions to create great interfaces. While the UXD team works to understand the functionalities and to create the wire-frames, technical writers can join hands to provide intuitive Microcopy. They will also show both good and bad examples of writing in interfaces and will give you some simple tips on how you can become a better writer to improve your interfaces.
