Improving the guide

The guide will continue to grow as we receive feedback from the public service and the community.

Future topics

Some of the ideas that have already been raised to include in the guide are:

  • using ‘we’ as well as ‘you’
  • writing about disability and inclusive language
  • referencing social media
  • updating external link style
  • providing hours of operation with phone numbers
  • a Northern Territory Indigenous language and dialect spelling guide
  • daylight savings and time zones
  • writing for specialists.
