Superb writing skills are not the first thing that comes to mind when talking about a technical translator’s skill set. The focus is usually on subject-matter expertise or methods for terminology research. Those are crucial, but good technical writing is a third skill that can be developed and one that improves translation quality quickly. The speaker will cover techniques that produce quality texts that convey information effectively, precisely, clearly, and briefly. This session will give many practical tips for ‘into English’ technical translators and will recommend useful resources and style guides.
