Here's a link to my collection of style guides, most of them available for purchase. For software purposes, the Microsoft Manual of Style for Technical Communication is a good starting point.

I'm writing to ask you for help in finding the best style guide(s) that can
be purchased by a company for a team of technical writers.

The first such a source that came to my mind is *The IBM Style Guide*, I
know this book and believe it's well written and can be a very good,
detailed, and to the point source for writers. However, I was asked to find
the latest and the best style guides that are available to buy.

Could you send me some recommendations? I would very much appreciate your

Thank you!
