Welcome to New Relic's style guide. We've written these guidelines for content creators across New Relic, and for contributors to our open source content projects, like the Docs or our other New Relic GitHub repositories.
This guide also gives you some insight into how we think about good technical writing. We focus on style and usage that's particular to New Relic. We follow American English conventions. For topics that aren't covered, please refer to the Microsoft Writing Style Guide (in particular, the "A–Z word list" and guide to Formatting common text elements) or the Chicago Manual of Style (for general writing and editing guidelines).
