Revising technical information

Your first approach with information that you're revising might be to consider whether the information is needed at all. Think about the guidelines for task orientation and completeness in particular. Maybe some information doesn't belong, as in the task topic on page 332 that offered two sets of instructions for two different audiences. Maybe a different viewpoint on the information is needed. For example, as with the reference information on page 340, you might need to clarify the type of information and then present the information as appropriate for that type.

Maybe you need first to “translate” the technical jargon into something more comprehensible. This translation is like working from product specifications, as in the conceptual information on page 337. After you understand the information, you can decide how best to revise it.
