Description

A practical, stimulating resource for professional writers, editors, and teachers, Solving Problems in Technical Writing shows how to use the latest research in linguistics and rhetoric and insights from today's business world to write, edit, format, and use graphics more effectively. The contributors, all outstanding professionals from academic or corporate settings, address twelve of the most fundamental questions in technical writing, including how to plan and structure a document, how to make technical information coherent and readable, and how to integrate text and graphics. Since the essays are organized the same way many functional documents are structured--a clear statement of a problem and its implications, followed by a comprehensive review of the pertinent literature and concrete recommendations for solutions--they provide elegant models of the technical writer's craft as well as a mine of useful information.show more
