It may sound like a detail, but agreeing on a style guide for your project â€“ or your whole company â€“ will save countless arguments.
Usually, no one can agree on exactly how particular things should be written. Does this word have a capital letter? Do you need to spell out abbreviations? And donâ€™t get me started on Oxford commas.
The style guide acts as a referee to make those decisions for you, and to ensure all your written materials follow best practice â€“ as well as making sure you avoid glaring, amateurish mistakes.
You may well want to customise one of these by adding your own jargon or personal preferences â€“ but if you just stick to the standard version, youâ€™ll be fine.
