What is UX writing

Commonly known as UX copywriting, UX writing refers to the process of formulating words and tones that end users interact with when they use a piece of software. In other words, UX writing can be described as the conversation between a digital product and its end user. These copies are known as “Microcopies.”

UX writing is mainly used by software businesses and companies that offer digital products. As a result, it has developed a unique writing style and tonality. The key to delivering effective UX writing is to be extremely concise while delivering a multitude of information. Concise and simple UX writing drives both businesses and end-users to achieve their goals

How does UX writing work

The tone and style of your microcopies will depend on your brand voice and business goal. You can use simple storytelling to guide your users or provide conversational support in chatbox, error messages, navigation menus, and so on. 

The writer has to have in-depth knowledge about your business, brand persona, and your users. The key is to make the communication/instruction clear and simple while provoking your users to take action. Conversational tones are used to guide and inform the user whereas a formal approach maintains minimal and transactional tone, eliminating non-essential info

Before approaching UX writing, you need to answer a few questions as the answers will dictate the tonality and style of your microcopies. The questions are as follows: 

  • Do existing copies resonate with your users? 
  • What are the needs and problems of your target users? 
  • Are you facing friction, or are your users tapping out at some point? 
  • Do existing copies fit your brand persona? 
  • What do your users resonate with? 
  • Does the current strategy align with your business goal?
  • Do the words lose impact when translated?

UX writing as a design disciple

UX writing is a subset of UX design and usually goes hand in hand. The designers help express your complex concepts in simple and powerful graphic form. However, only visuals aren’t enough to make your users take action. UX writing acts as a bridge to connect your design with your content

The key job of a UX writer is:

  • Create microcopies using simple, actionable language
  • Visualize research data however necessary
  • Make the environment engaging, pleasant, and additive
  • Act as a bridge across diverse teams
  • Maintain message cohesion throughout the project
  • humanize your digital products
  • Convey a simple and concise message

A design may have multiple touchpoints, but a UX writer’s job is to bring those touchpoints to life

What does a UX writer do?

The role of a UX writer is so impenetrable and vast that you come across UX microcopies every single day through your smartphone, car dashboard, smart TV, or any other digital screen. It’s so common that you most probably don’t even notice microcopies unless the UX writer does a bad job

A UX writer deals with a multitude of tasks including:

  • Various page microcopy
  • Empathy/user journey mapping
  • User/brand personas
  • Site maps and error messages
  • UX content strategy guidelines
  • Email and SMS notification
  • Copy architecture and hierarchy
  • Chatbot environment
  • A/B testing microcopies
  • User flows and workflows

The job of a UX writer goes beyond placing words. A UX writer also has to pay attention and plays an important part in content strategy. They’ll evaluate what worked in the past and what didn’t to create copies that will work. They’re like the magician of words who know how to make users connect with your digital product

What makes UX writing efficient

UX microcopies may look menial, but hold more importance than most other types of writing. If not done right, words can confuse and annoy end users and become the biggest obstacle in your path to success. UX writers need to maintain clarity, self-awareness, precision, and consistency

Microcopies also need to be simple, empathetic, and engaging. A good UX writer will be detail-oriented, user-centric, and straightforward. Remember, they establish the connection between users and your digital product

The tone of voice in UX writing

The tonality of your UX writing will depend on your brand persona. However, in a broader sense, the words in your UX microcopies need to be simple, human, and motivating. A UX writer will help people use or understand your digital product with ease. That is why most UX writers prioritize simplicity, conciseness, and context

Additionally, seasoned UX writers tend to avoid using professional or technical jargon. They also avoid using passive voice and long, complex language. Furthermore, a good UX writer will motivate the users to take action through compelling and positive meta language. The goal is to make it simple and actionable

A UX writer will consider these things while setting the perfect tone of voice for your brand:

  • What does your brand persona act like?
  • How do your customers interact with your brand?
  • What products/services are you providing?
  • How do you want to approach the market?

The UX writer needs to be consistent with the tonality as you won’t have the option to change how you speak to your audience. The key here is precision and consistency

Why should UX writing be a part of the UX design process?

If you focus on creating a pleasant experience that is greater than the sum of its parts, you’ll need a good UX writer. This is especially true if you want to target multiple customer bases with different characteristics, the writer needs to work in harmony with the UX design team to provide an inclusive experience.

You can use just words to help communicate your product with the users, but visuals alone cannot do the same. Design is an important part of the experience, but without words, the experience won’t be complete or satisfactory

You need both to work in unison so that you can provide a magical user experience. When that happens, you’ll notice higher conversions/sales, better retention rates, and more satisfied users. Here are some best practices that ensure a better outcome:   

  • Evolve through trial and error (A/B testing) 
  • Provide your users with a choice 
  • Motivate your users to take action
  • Use gamification and psychological principles to your advantage 
  • Maintain precision and originality without being obscure 
  • Position your copies within the adaptive interface’s design hierarchy 
  • Use design thinking to strategically place contents 
  • Create and maintain a strong, pleasant brand persona 
  • Educate and guide your users to your desired clickstream
