TGIF—it’s been a busy week here at TechWhirl, and we’re ready for a little
winding down time, with our technical communication recap. In addition
to a First
Look review on MadCap Flare 9 from Andrea
Altenburg<http://techwhirl.com/techwhirl-first-look-madcap-flare-9/>and
an in-depth
review from Lois
Patterson<http://techwhirl.com/madcap-flare-9-versatility-for-help-projects/>,
we spent an hour with those crazy MadCap product evangelists Mike Hamilton
and Jennifer White in our Fast Five
interview<http://techwhirl.com/event/madcap-software-flare-9-madworld/>.
We also published a new poll to get some conversation going around how
technical communicators currently handle translation and localization
projects<http://techwhirl.com/technical-communication-poll-translation-localization/>.
We’d love to hear from you about you current process, pain points, and
plans for the future, so feel free to post a comment to the intro to the
poll. Don’t forget to take a look at what else is going on around the web
in Craig Cardimon’s Tech Writer This
Week<http://techwhirl.com/tech-writer-this-week-for-march-7-2013/>curation.



Lively discussions on all sorts of topics abound over on the email
discussion list <http://techwr-l.com/>. Add your thoughts to any of the
threads going on: FrameMaker to InDesign conversion, note-taking and
learning cursive, single-sourcing and PDF, Linux and tech writers, who’s
really using EPUB, your favorite project and deliverable, and building
forms for tablet users, just to name a few.



As for the TechWhirl gang, it’s time to enjoy a little sunshine and good
weather, and settle in for prepping a whole new week of great technical
communication and content management goodness. Stay tuned…



Have a great weekend!
