am interested in a career in technical editing and am currently researching
"the levels of edit" to determine how technical editors organize/prioritize
the editorial process (also in preparation for a class project). The process
produced by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory ("The Levels of Edit" by Robert
Van Buren and Mary Fran Buehler) seems to be the most thorough and
inclusive-- offering a definitive plan. Is this process standard in the
typical editing environment? (Is it actually used by technical editors?) If
not, how do you (editors) define/determine "levels of edit"? I would greatly
appreciate your feedback. Thanks.>>

Another good list on which to post this question is the STC's Technical
Editing SIG (Special Interest Group) mailing list. Their Website is located
at: http://www.stcsig.org/te/index.asp. Their mailing list address is:
stctesig-l -at- lists -dot- stc -dot- org -dot- I have copied them on this post.
