We’ve had the conversation with the business, elicited examples and documented them in Gherkin. In reality conversations with the business don’t take place using Gherkin, so they have to be translated into the ‘Given When Then’ format. Unwittingly details can be lost and ambiguities introduced during this translation process. How can we stop this this accidental loss of information?

In this short talk I’ll discuss some simple writing techniques and language tools that can help

avoid the details being buried and improve the overall readability of examples.
