With a focus on both language and technology, Technical Editing: Products & Processes guides the readerthrough each level of editing, each stage of becoming an editor, and each aspect of production after the formal editing is complete. From its realistic scenarios to self-diagnostic exercises, this book is designed to be hands-on–consistently helping students assess and develop their own technical editing skills. Unlike other books, its goal is to move beyond grammar and style to encompass technology issues that reflect the expanding role of the technical editor in the workplace.
