Tech Terms

Is there an industry standard for tech terms, to use when creating software simulation training?

I would like to standardize my terms and have something to back up my choices.

For example;

“Click the Exit button”

One customer accepts this, one says it should say left click, and one says “click” is a noise not an action (noun- depression of a button on a computer mouse)

 I was looking for something would include actions a user would perform like;

Click – Click the button

Highlight / select? – highlight/select the second choice

Right click

Left click

Drag and Drop vs Drag


And nouns that described what they were looking at like;

Dropdown menu

Pop-up menu vs Pop-up window 


Is there something out there (that is simple)

Thank you for your time J
