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.
It depends. If I'm working with "a committee" where one or more members can be relied upon to comment or criticize or demand background supporting each and every edit, then sigh it's on paper so everybody can see "what I'm up to". I tend not to stay in those environments for very long (my choice).
When I'm lucky enough to be hired on the basis of my credentials and portfolio and am given some trust to use my expertise to improve the documents, I edit onscreen. Usually I'm working in Word, so I can use the "track changes" feature just in case anybody wants to know what got changed (if not why I changed it).
