Behind every great technical writer is a great technical editor….or at least there would be in an ideal world. And, even more importantly, there’d be a technical editor behind every non-writer who produces documentation. But how do tech editors decide what support to give? What should they base their decisions on? How do they convey it to the writers in a way that doesn’t make them cringe? All this and more will be covered in the popular returning online course, Technical Editing Foundations, hosted by Li-At Rathbun. The course begins tomorrow, 7 February, at 10:00 AM EST (GMT-5) and will run on Wednesdays through 14 March. Register today!
Technical communicators often find themselves in support or behind-the-scenes roles, but the tech comm skill set lends itself perfectly to directly supporting clients and doing consulting work.

Technical communicators know that graphics and visuals can add significant value to documentation and support, but the cost, time, or creative effort is often prohibitive. Andrea Perry and Brean Pavlinak tackle this problem and how to solve it in Improve Screenshots Using Simplified User Interface (SUI). This FREE STC Member-Only Sponsored Webinar was so popular that we brought it back for 2018. The webinar will take place on Thursday, 8 February, at 2:00 PM EST (GMT-5).
