Error messages

← Back to Content patterns

Error message should succinctly inform the user:

  1. What went wrong
  2. How to fix/work around it

Be sure to phrase the error in a conversational, human way anybody’s likely to understand. Don’t reference error codes people aren’t likely to know.

Avoid humor and the use of the word sorry.
