The guide emphasizes the importance of non-code contributions to the TYPO3 ecosystem, and is a valuable resource for anyone looking to improve their writing and editing skills.
We’re excited to announce the launch of the Community Writer's Guide. This guide is designed to help anyone in the TYPO3 community create clear, consistent, and high-quality writing about TYPO3 and its ecosystem.

The TYPO3 Community Language & Writing Guide is a resource for anyone in the TYPO3 community who is writing content for or about TYPO3 in an official capacity. 

You don’t have to read the guide to begin contributing—but feel free to use it as a reference and skip around as needed.

Consistent and Comprehensible Content

The guide is designed to help create a cohesive voice in all TYPO3-related writing. With a diverse global community of contributors, it's essential that we all use the same voice and terminology when discussing TYPO3. By following the guidelines in this guide, we can ensure that everyone's writing is consistent and easy to understand.

Writing, documentation, and other forms of content creation are just as important as writing code in open-source projects, and they deserve just as much attention and care. The guide emphasizes the importance of non-code contributions to the TYPO3 ecosystem, and is a valuable resource for anyone looking to improve their writing and editing skills.

A Guide for Everyone

You! If you are reading this, the writing guide is for you.

This guide is for anyone in the TYPO3 community writing content for or about TYPO3 in an official capacity. You might be writing for typo3.org, typo3.com, official documentation, or content in TYPO3 itself.

Additionally, the guide can be useful for those who write about TYPO3 on personal blogs or websites.

Using the Guide When Writing or Editing

The guide can be used in a few different ways, depending on your project.

As an author, you can read it first, then write. Or start writing, then refer to it to check questions as they arise.

As an editor or reviewer, you can use it as a reference to check work written by others.
