Writing in English for the Global Market

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This workshop will help you tailor your writing in English for non-English-speaking readers. It will help you apply principles of good technical communication in a global context.
We will use interactive exercises to get at topics that can include:
• Structuring ideas
• Short is beautiful
• Minimalism and global English 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.
Near the beginning of the workshop, we'll find out participants' specific questions and needs, and adjust the content to answer as many as possible.

Additional rates apply for this session.
