Anindita Basu

Hi! I am a technical writer and editor.

I write menu names, button names, option labels, dialog box headings, error messages, notifications, and every little thing you see on user interfaces.

I also write HowTos, tutorials, API references, admin and deployment guides, and other long-form text that you need to read to get a software up, running, and usable.

Sometimes, I make videos.

At other times, I draw wireframes and prototypes for user interfaces.

At all times, I remain curious. Because, that's what helps me write for you — my reader — you who will use my words to get your jobs done as fast as possible.

And, I like to treat my documents as code. I am a great fan of string interpolation, for example.

My special areas of interest are information architecture and content strategy.

Oh, and did I mention I'm tool agnostic? Tools are a only a means to an end, aren't they? Like, one can play chess even without the chess pieces... (you can watch the following video clip on mute if you don't know Hindi; sometimes, even language is a tool)

Tools are only tools

Play chess without the pieces
