Tips for technical editing
Details: Technical editing is a well-paid and undersupplied area of editing. As language and technologies merge, it is possible for trained editors to build the skills to take up this diverse and challenging work.
In this presentation, Lyneve will outline what distinguishes technical editing from other types of editing. She will offer tips for developing a knowledge base in this area and for winning freelance work.
Presenter: Lyneve Rappell
Lyneve spent nearly ten years with Techwriter Placements, finding technical writers and editors for projects in biotech, finance, construction, defence etc. Since then she has returned to editing, first with Boston Consulting Group and more recently with ANZ’s economic research team.
In the 1990s Lyneve worked in Japan, teaching English and journal editing before returning to Australia and gaining an MA in Publishing and Editing from Macquarie University.
