We can help you in these areas:

Guidelines and Standards

Which standards and directives must you observe in the technical documentation for your product? What belongs in a complete CE Declaration of Conformity? We show you ways out of the “paragraph jungle” and support you in implementing the regulatory requirements for your documentation.

Standardisation and Information Design

Increase efficiency, reduce costs: Standardisation is the be-all and end-all when creating technical documentation. We master all established standardisation techniques and help you implement them – whether it's Function Design®, Controlled Language, metadata concepts, or the right modularisation strategy for your content.

Illustration and Visualisation

Keep it simple! Technical illustrations are indispensable for making complex relationships understandable. Our team of Illustrators knows exactly what's important – and develops visualisation concepts for you that take your documentation to a new level.

Process Optimisation and Project Management

Interdepartmental interfaces, tight delivery deadlines, staff shortages: the demands on project management in a Technical Editorial department are great. We help you optimise your processes and achieve maximum result quality.

System Consulting and Implementation

Modern Content Management System or professional authoring tool? The right tool is essential for the success of your technical writing. We advise and support you - from the selection of the right system to the technical implementation and support during operation.

Quality Management

Highest quality – from the word level to the creative implementation: Our ISO-certified Quality Management checks all aspects of your technical documentation and thus ensures systematic optimisation of your content.

Aus der Praxis für die Praxis

In Practice for Practice

Unlike pure consulting companies, we’re always able to support you in the implementation of the results after the conclusion of the consulting phase. Many of our consulting projects are thus accompanied by us from the initial idea to the final implementation. Thereby we stand for innovative (and at the same time realisable) solutions.

What our customers say about us


"kothes took over this responsibility many years ago, not only for the creation of technical documentation for SIG, but also for the processing of daily business, translations, reprography and even hosting the Content Management System. This gives us more freedom to concentrate on our main task: the further development of carton packaging systems. Over the years we've come to know kothes, not only as a trustworthy and competent partner, but also as a company that's always available to advise us on the appropriate steps to take for the future of our technical documentation. Of course, this only works if you move, yourself! We're looking forward to continued successful cooperation."

Dirk Noske, Head of Legal Compliance & Documentation


"It is very helpful that at kothes, we have a permanent contact person who manages even complex projects (with several participants from different companies) reliably and transparently."
