Hello Technical Editors-
I am currently doing a pilot study for my Technical Editing Class. I am
interested in knowing what practicing technical editors believe are the most
important skills/qualities necessary for becoming a successful technical
editor. For this question, please just provide a brief response about what
you think are the most important skills a technical editor must possess.
>From the answers to this open-ended question, I will then identify the
variables for successful editing and develop a more fine-tuned survey.

Thank you in advance for your help,
Ali Ferguson
