Unique training opportunity for Technical Communicators, Technical Writers

Are you working professionally as a technical writer, technical editor, information engineer or technical translator?
Are you producing technical documentation in English?

The Aim
This course will give you the English language skills you need to do the job correctly, accurately and more efficiently than before. You will learn how to write technical instructions, process descriptions and technical function descriptions – the core skills necessary to be a successful technical communicator.

The Course
This course is a series of four course days (2x2) combined with realistic written assignments spread over a period of six weeks (equivalent to 2 additional course days). The written assignments are sent to the course leader for detailed analysis and individual feedback. The feedback helps to identify the specific aspects of technical English that the participant needs to focus on and improve. But the focus is also on the structure of the technical text itself, what is required for good quality technical information, the norms and conventions that apply to technical documentation of a high standard. This course is a unique training opportunity that will considerably increase your technical writing competence.
