Introduction to Taxonomies for Technical Writers
Wednesday July 15th, 2020 @ 6:00pm - 7:00pm BST
Taxonomies are controlled and structured sets of terms, including those referred to as tags or categories. This webinar explains the differences between tags and categories and between different kinds of taxonomies, especially hierarchical and faceted and when each is most suitable for different contexts. The structure and the terms of a taxonomy need to be customized for both the users and for the content. Various stakeholders need to be engaged in a taxonomy project, but the process does not need to be overly complicated. Taxonomies exist of various sizes and complexities, and similarly taxonomy creation can range from simple to complex.
