Hi all-
I sent an email out a few days ago about my pilot study for technical
editing (see below). Please, please help me! I need more responses in
order to develop a good questionnaire.

"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!
