Verify consistency with your current product voice and tone

When writing new UX copy, it’s important that new text matches the current voice and tone of your product. Frontitude’s filter and search features, located inside the Search, and Project tabs, allow writers to quickly verify consistency.

Let's review how you can utilize these features for this purpose:

Scope of work

Before you start, choose the scope of your work. If you'd like to work on a project level, open the desired project using the Projects tab. If the work is related to UX copy that is shared between more than a single project, use the Search tab.

Project page, for project level work
  1. A list of frames/artboards exported to Frontitude, organized by pages. Click the frame or page to filter the texts stored in it.
  2. Search and filter texts under the selected level on the left (project, a page, or a frame). Learn more about it in the next section.
  3. Edit a selected text: Change its value, add/remove custom tags, link it to other instances, or just leave a comment.
Search tab, for workspace level work (all texts)
  1. Search and filter all texts stored in your account (workspace). Learn more about it in the next section.
  2. Each result can be edited on editing panel (on the right), or be opened in its project in a new tab.
  3. Edit a selected text: Change its value, add/remove custom tags, link it to other instances, or just leave a comment.

Filter, search, and tag

Option 1: Filter by Tags

Tags add context to each copy, enhancing project organization. You can tag by copy type (Title, Caption, Error Message, etc), by copy function (Payment Flow, Onboarding Step, etc), or any other useful tag you can think of, and then filter List View to show specific tags. Filtering by tags is ideal if you are looking to review specific copy categories.

  1. Open the desired copy
  2. Click Add Tags in the editing side panel 
  3. Search for a tag or create your own 
  4. Once all the desired copy is tagged, go back to List View
  5. Click Filter by tags
  6. Choose the desired tag or tags you’d like to review. You can add multiple tag filters if you are reviewing a specific copy style, or just use one if you want to review a broader variety  
  7. Review copy to make sure the voice and tone are consistent
Option 2: Search for terms

The search bar function allows you to search for individual words or phrases, quickly showing how the term is currently being used in the product. You can search for copy throughout the entire project or within specific frames. Searching for terms is ideal if you are looking to review specific terminology.

  1. In List View, open the desired page or frame you’d like to search
  2. Use the search bar to search for copy
  3. Review copy usage and check for consistency
