Technical Writing 101
A Real-world Guide to Planning and Writing Technical ContentBook - 2009 | 3rd ed
To succeed in technical writing, you need a lot more than just writing ability. Technical Writing 101: A Real-World Guide to Planning and Writing Technical Content details the skills you need as a technical writer to create both printed and online content. This valuable reference describes the entire development process-planning, writing, visual design, editing, indexing, and production. You also get tips on how to write information that is more easily translated into other languages. You'll learn about the importance of following templates and about how structured authoring environments based on Extensible Markup Language (XML) streamline the content development process. This updated third edition features new information on the Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) standard for structured authoring, and it explains the impact of Web 2.0 technologies-blogs, wikis, and forums-on technical communication.
