Custom filtration

Custom filtration – forget about this phrase. It should be ‘custom filtering‘ or better ‘a custom filter option‘ because we normally do not want to see nouns derived from verbs by adding ‘ing’. The same goes for ‘saving’/restoring’, etc – it’s a save operation/option


Scenario – is more a theatrical term, a plot of a play. What we mean is ‘usage scenario‘ or better a capability/functionality/a feature

ready VS pre-build

“ready sample solution” – is wrong. “pre-built” is more correct. Example: “We don’t always have pre-built solutions to offer our users.”

During the last year

Throughout this year (if you are referring to the present calendar year) Throughout last year Over the last few years Bottom line – be careful of how you use “during” to refer to time periods
