Stephen Crabbe, a senior lecturer in applied linguistics at the University of Portsmouth, UK, just released “Current Practices and Trends in Technical and Professional Communication,” a valuable source of collective knowledge from our community of practice.
Experienced practitioners and innovators (from the UK and internationally) are sharing what they know for the benefit of both the communicator and the end user. Among the contributors are two IXIASOFT experts, Keith Schengili- Roberts, Senior DITA Content Strategist, as well as Nolwenn Kerzreho, Technical Account Manager for Europe.
The topics in the book cover important issues affecting the work we do (including globalization, localization and accessibility), and the tools and processes we can use to resolve some of the issues we encounter. Changes in technology are described, and ways of harnessing that technology are identified, including both current and future possibilities.
Whether you work in relative isolation, as the sole technical or professional communicator in a multidisciplinary team, or with other technical or professional communicators, you will find plenty in this book that is thought-provoking, interesting, and useful.
