Pragmatic technical writing for practicing writers who need to apply effective methods. This eBook focuses on writing as a process. Writing can consist of a task covering a few days or a team based effort of a few months.

The eBook commences with considerations related to writing: what is ""technical"", what are the risks and ethical considerations in writing. It then discusses the 9 activities in a writing process: Activity 1: Identify and Understand Your Readers Activity 2: Segment Multiple Readers Activity 3: Identify Information Providers and Collect Information Activity 4: Determine the Document’s Sequencing or Flow Modes Activity 5: Develop the Structure of the Document Activity 6: Develop the Content of the Document Activity 7: Develop and Integrate Visual Aids Activity 8: Review, Evaluate and Update the Document Activity 9: Finalize or Create a Camera-ready Document Having provided the technical writer with a framework, the eBook proceeds by discussing various skills and techniques needed when writing: • How to structure documents, • How to develop effective and efficient documents, • How to improve your writing skills, • How to improve your argumentation and persuasion skills, • The uses and misuses of language • How to make technology work for you The eBook is supported by a set of folders that can be downloaded. These consist of workouts, templates, various examples and even original images that are too large to be seen properly in an eBook (which has to be viewed on wide monitors as well 7 inch tablets).

Based on 55 semi-structured in-depth interviews, this book investigates 15 high-tech engineering co-op professionals’ writing experience in the workplace. It shows how the digital age has had a marked impact on the engineers’ methods of communication at work, and how on-the -job writing has affected engineers’ technical competence, shaped their professional identities, challenged their views on Chinese and English writing, and hindered their success in the workplace. The book identifies three aspects of writing practice: engineers’ linguistic and literacy challenges, the reasons behind these challenges, and coping strategies, which suggest that engineers are underprepared and lack necessary support in the workplace. Lastly, the study shows that engineers need to engage in technical literacy through on-the-job writing so that they can fully deal with workplace discourse and socialize with diverse professional groups. Since the sample group interviewed in this book is engineers who studied at universities in the United States and have a foot in the world of school and work as well as knowledge of both Eastern and Western cultures, the book appeals to teachers, students, engineers and scientists who are interested in scientific and technological writing. It is also valuable for educators who prepare scientists, engineers, and technical communicators for professional roles, as well as for communication practitioners who work with engineers. /div
