Abstract

"Writing for the global market – a basic skillset for Technical Authors writing in English language" - Workshop presented by Ray Gallon for tekom Danmark:

This is a workshop for people who write in English for audiences whose first language is not necessarily English. It is especially useful when the writer, too, does not have English as her/his first language.

We will use interactive exercises to get at topics that can include:

  • Structuring ideas in English
  • Short is beautiful
  • Minimalism in technical communications
  • Differences between native English and Global English
  • The role of culture
  • Know your audience
  • Terminology
  • Common traps
  • Writing collectively, topic based authoring, etc.

This list will be adjusted on site to fit the expressed needs of participants, so as to help people solve real problems.
