Which editing tool do you use at TDW and why?

You will already know that at TDW we do not endorse or recommend software tools, not without understanding first how tools are planned to be employed.

We believe that what is good for the goose is not always best for the gander!

That being said, we have to use some tools to show process and best practice, especially when we produce training and learning content for TD-iQ.

This week we answer the constant question we get asked – “Which editor do you use on your training tutorials and why?” – the answer often surprises people but we add some meat to the bone during this video and talk about why we use Adobe FrameMaker and the wider TCS suite of tools, what frustrates us and what alternatives there are.

Make sure you follow us on all our social channels as we release content regularly for the aerospace, defence and space tech data experts worldwide!

Mike Ingledew

A trained aircraft engineer (rotorcraft), I entered in to the field of technical information writing S1000D data modules on a major European military platform.

After a series of high profile project roles and the privilege of supporting clients worldwide, I ended my 'employed' career at a subsidiary of Boeing Aircraft after I decided to leave and focus on TDW full-time.

From my time supporting clients worldwide, I could see that there was a market need for an independent organisation that could be a trusted advisory source for those needing to implement successful technical information strategies.

I am passionate about the art of technical communications and the process, software and skills needed in our market.
