  • Installation Guide
  • Getting started guide
  • Online manuals
  • Collateral material
Most of the instructional text will be included in the online documentation. It is now quite common to have reference or administrative guides that are published on online format. the only printed books generally provided with the software are the Installation or the Getting Started guides. Software products also contain collateral material that is translated. Standard items include quick reference cards, marketing pieces, disk labels, and the product box.
