# The WRITE Section
In the Write section (a subsection of the Transform area) you develop your texts in linguistic terms. You formulate and edit your statements (content units on the NLG platform) based on a specific data set (the test object). You also specify the statement components that come from the data, describe grammatical properties and the linguistic relationships of the words.
# The core elements of the Write section:
- A Statements on the NLG platform is a content and linguistic unit including branches and subbranches, static parts and containers.
- Containers are defined parts of a statement containing words or other expressions that are further processed grammatically as a unit. Some containers get their content from specific sources, i.e from data (variables) or nodes.
- Branches are visual representations of the structures and sub-decisions in your statements. Branches support creating statements in more variable ways and arranging their components according to given requirements.
