One subject that I am interested in is the state of the technical writing
profession in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. Has technical
writing become a formal profession in that part of the world? I read an STC
presentation written by someone on technical writing in Ukraine. She stated
that the profession is just getting started over there. I would especially
like to hear from those on this list who work in the former Soviet Union and
Eastern Europe. I am especially curious to find out who wrote the technical
documentation for heavy and light machinery under the Communist system. I
wonder whether there is a Russian expression for "technical writer"--last
one I heard was "sostavitel' tekhnicheskoi dokumentatsii." Is there another
more precise Russian term for "technical writer"? If anybody can provide
information on this subject, I would appreciate it.
