  • Description:
    Technical Editing: An Introduction to Editing in the Workplace offers the most comprehensive, accessible, and current approach to technical and professional editing. Written by an experienced author team, the first part of the text provides an overview of the editing process (appraising the document, creating an editing plan, and implementing the plan), the second part covers substantive editing (editing for organization, completeness, accuracy, etc.), and the third part explains copyediting (from its principles and procedures to their application in practice) and proofreading. The authors discuss such topics as fraud in the workplace and whistleblowing; navigation aids in print and digital documents; redaction of classified or confidential information; layout and design principles; controlled languages, the plain English movement, and international varieties of English; content reuse and content management systems; and electronic editing skills. The book provides ample coverage of grammar, punctuation, and usage, with many authentic examples from technical and business documents.
