UX Writing: Writing for User Experience
Words are part of our daily lives.
They’re in our cell phones, computers, and voice assistants. They are the ones who guide us when we buy a piece of clothing online, pay the water bill at the ATM, or call a customer support line. They are a fundamental part of the user experience, just like design and programming.
But to write to our user, we first have to know him. In what context do you use our product? What challenges do you encounter?
Find out what UX Writing is and what its basic principles are. Learn some user research techniques and write for common scenarios such as errors, forms, buttons, or success messages.
All this while sharing experiences and learning from real examples and practical exercises.

Maria started her career as a UX designer nearly a decade ago. In 2018, the course that she took in Content Design, in London, saw her passion for clear language transform into outright love. She is an instructor for the international UX-PM certification and a Scrabble addict.
Filipa pursued stories in journalism and political communication before moving on to UX writing. Writing for users made her realise that words are the most magical thing ever.
It would never have occurred to Vítor that, after graduating from his course in psychology, he would be returning to Coimbra as a UX Content Designer. After working in HR and communications, he found the perfect balance between his enjoyment of writing and his people-centric focus at Tangível (as well as colleagues every bit as eager as himself).
A specialist in user research and human factors, what she truly loves is discovering how knowledge can help create solutions to simplify people’s lives. Training professionals with a human-centred approach is the icing on her cake.
After reading the book The Design of Everyday Things, the usability “bug” never stopped growing, and he founded Tangível in 2004. Prior to this, for nearly two decades, his students heard him talk enthusiastically about user experience.
