As the registered company Geller Guides, I found, oversaw, coached, and edited subcontracted writers for a couple of technical articles that appeared on the Apple Developer Connection section of Apple’s website. (I’ll provide copies of the articles on request.)
Adaptation of a user manual to act as a guide to potential software reviewers.
Took user manuals in Microsoft Word format and adapted them for online reading, which included new screen shots and some reorganization of material. The four manuals were ContentBarrier, Personal Antispam, Personal Backup, and FileGuard.
I edited this while in college. The collection comprises three parts: Personal writings, academic writings, and an annotated “sourcebook” of support and social groups.
