TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
The Microsoft Manual of Style for Technical Publications says to replace the
word "leverage" with "use": does anyone have any experience using this term?
Is it acceptable to substitute "use"/"using" for "leverage"/"leveraging"
in all situations (i.e., situations other than producing software
documentation)? Here is the sentence:
In the knowledge era, the XXXX will achieve market leadership by leveraging
collective knowledge to creat value.
