Welcome to the E Source style guide (PDF) and word list (PDF). We created these resources to help E Source employees write clear and consistent content across the E Source website.

We use the Chicago Manual of Style as our default style guide. We adapt certain rules to better suit E Source voice, which is how we’ve created the E Source style guide. And we use Merriam-Webster as our default dictionary, which is how we determine how to treat certain words and phrases in the E Source word list.

We invite you to use and adapt these resources as needed. All we ask is that you credit E Source. Although the E Source style guide and word list are freely available online, they haven’t been written with public or external use in mind. Note that we’ve removed internal E Source hyperlinks from these versions.

Thanks to the Mailchimp Content Style Guide and the University of Oxford Style Guide for content and design inspiration.
