LexTips: Accuracy in Writing

Posted on: April 19, 2009

Make the content of your document as true and accurate as possible. This means you must know your subject matter, follow your outline, and gather correct information. Errors cost time, money and customer goodwill. In some cases, they can create a liability for the company.

Further, writers have a moral obligation to give their readers factual information. Accuracy is the least your audience should expect from your work. Without accuracy, the rest of the document is useless.

This principle of good business and technical writing will help you communicate. As with the other principles of good writing, learn it well and practice it daily, and you will improve your writing style.
