Improving UX through UX writing

Improved UX of manuals through UX writing

"From "Easy to Understand" to "Comfortable"
Improving the UX of Manuals for Products and Services that are Loved for a Long Time

Recently, it has become difficult to differentiate products and services based solely on design and quality. That's where the focus is on improving UX (User Experience).
By providing a user experience that makes customers feel happy and able to achieve what they want, it is a strategy to differentiate from competing products and services. Improving UX leads to increased customer satisfaction, trust in the brand, and an increase in fans.


Improvement of UX

Human Science Co., Ltd. has quickly incorporated UX writing into their manuals.

In order to deliver the value of your important products and services to users, Human Science has incorporated the method of "UX writing" into our manuals.
We create manuals that not only are easy to understand and accurate, but also clearly convey the benefits such as "how to use it conveniently" and "what can be achieved".

Customer Feedback

Introducing feedback from customers who have actually incorporated UX writing into their manuals.


  • Famous IT Company
    Consulting Department
    Previously, the manual was written by developers, so the explanation of functions was inevitably the focus. Thanks to Human Science Co., Ltd. incorporating a UX perspective and rewriting it, I feel that it has become easier for users to understand how our company wants them to use the product.
  • Major Food and Beverage Chain
    Human Resources Development Department
    I thought it would be enough to just accurately describe the work in the manual. However, by writing why the task needs to be done and what it means, it seems that the importance of following the manual when working has been conveyed to part-time and temporary employees.

What is UX Writing?

Understanding user-centered design and product strategy, and designing words that connect users with products and services.
Generally used in the UI writing of applications and devices, but Human Science considers this way of thinking essential for manuals.
Specifically, we write with the following points in mind.


  • Communicate the experience and benefits gained, not just the functionality specifications.
  • Write in the language that users normally use.
  • Write only necessary information
  • Write in a way that can be intuitively understood
  • Understand and express corporate branding, product and service branding, and product strategy
