Achieving the Right Colo(u)r

A session at TCUK 2015 | Technical Communication UK

  • Ron Blicq

Wednesday 30th September, 2015

1:30pm to 2:10pm (GMT)

Preparing a document that will be published separately in the US, UK, Canada or Australasia means tackling many more differences than just changing the spelling and general terminology. Factors involve punctuation, word choice, tone, use of ‘local’ expressions, interpretation of meaning, culture of the country, subjectivity and objectivity, page size, and numerous minor yet not insignificant items. Readers who encounter expressions that can be misinterpreted or simply not understood may downplay the importance of the information or comment disparagingly on the writer’s capability as a communicator.
