Summary

This market-leading text has been thoroughly revised to reflect recent changes in technology, workplace practices, and the global marketplace. As before, the book progresses from concepts to basic copyediting to comprehensive editing to management and production issues, but coverage now includes a new chapter on electronic editing and a new chapter on editing in global contexts. Technical Editing takes a comprehensive approach to editing, defining editorial responsibility in terms of information design and the overall effectiveness of a document, not only the correctness achieved through sentence-level editing. The book teaches students to think about the effects of their choices of words, sentences, organization, and design, and gives them principles and processes for this thinking. They learn that the measure of a good document is in part outside the document, in the match of that document to the users' needs and the author's goals.
