Use Confluence to edit and manage user manuals and output them on different ways?

We currently use Confluence as our internal knowledge base. Can we use Confluence to manage our user manual in multiple languages.

So we need a software to fulfill the following requirements to manage the user manual:

  • Version management - changes need to be versioned continuously to be able to revert to older versions.
  • Change tracking - to be able to transfer changes in the source file into other languages.
  • Access management - To provide access to technical editors and translators.
  • Output to the user as a pdf, as web-based help and in our app.

Is there any experience of user manuals in relation to these requirements, can Confluence do this?

Hi @Maximilian Dollinger 

I would say Confluence is the best Tool for this. Confluence fullfills all of your requirements out of the box!

I would suggest you to go the cloud way, because the server is discontinued for 02/24.

Hey Dominic,

is it possibe to get a more detailed introduction from you how our company could use Confluence for this manual topic.

For example a short call?

Hey Dominic,

We need to create a well designed User manual. So is there an add-on to edit documents in a professional layout like In design?

Regards, Max
