Ghostwriting of software documentation

No company today can afford to forego the use of industry-specific software.

If self-employed persons in the rather general service sector often still use the more or less extensively used office package, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are hardly able to afford any special software that allows a large amount of information on all production and communication steps. to manage customer relations (CRM), marketing and sales.

However, the use of the software depends on its users’ abilities: Programs with extensive functions are worthless for companies if they are not used rudimentarily. Often, the decision to test or purchase a piece of software turns out to be the lesser problem – compared to training your own staff.

In many cases, it makes sense to not only use the manufacturer’s documentation, but to develop their own, specially tailored to the knowledge and skills of their own staff manuals. This has the advantage that it is not written from the perspective of programmers whose formulations sometimes have little understanding for the everyday problems of users. This will allow you to gain initial experience with the software as well as create extensive collections of illustrative examples to help employees with the application. Ideally, a comprehensive, easy-to-understand manual will help you to take advantage of all the software’s capabilities and take it one step further than the competition. Ghostwriters, who are usually intensive users of various software packages during their work, can create extensive manuals or translate and supplement foreign-language documentations.

“Can I have my master’s thesis written with you?”

Some ghostwriting agency clients bluntly ask such questions – unaware that they can get in trouble with them and the writers.

It may be the despair, the nervousness or simply the lack of clarity that causes students to ask agencies for this service. Students who do so also do so because agency advertising cleverly plays with these terms – but usually also points out that the texts written by ghostwriters may not be submitted as a separate exam, especially if one The affidavit is that the student wrote the texts himself.

The fact is that academic ghostwriting – as opposed to plagiarism – can hardly be proven and therefore quite a number of students might exist, who abused the work for this purpose, without being held accountable.

It may be a nuisance for the agencies that undertake the writing of scientific papers when customers directly and literally ask for a Master, Bachelor or Diploma thesis. If the request is instead directed to the creation of a scientific text, as it is needed in non-fiction books, brochures or on academic Internet portals, this is usually unproblematic.

On the one hand, customers are entitled to their text, but on the other hand to the associated discretion.

You do not have to give the agencies a purpose and it does not matter if the text is published in a scientific magazine, in a non-fiction book or on a journalistic Internet portal. However, if a customer intends to acquire an academic title with a ghostwriter text, he must bear the potential consequences himself. He would be better advised in this case, not even the agencies and their authors to confront it.
