Guide to Technical Editing

Discussion, Dictionary, and Exercises

Anne Eisenberg

The only book of its kind, Guide to Technical Editing shows students and professionals how to edit their technical writing for accuracy, clarity, and grammar. The workbook provides exercises for editing abstracts and presenting technical information from the reader's point of view, and drills to develop and sharpen the writer's ability to edit for both content and grammatical correctness. Including a technical editor's glossary with stylebook entries as well as common terms, this unique new text will be an essential resource and training manual for undergraduates, working scientists and engineers, and technical professionals for whom English is not a first language.
