Adobe News of the Month

We launched a digital campaign on http://www.dowriteright.com for technical
writers who want a more powerful authoring tool than Word.

There are also a lot of conversations on social platforms (Facebook,
LinkedIn and Twitter) on the same subject – search for #WriteRight to join
the conversation!

March 27 webinar 2PM PAC on "Topic-based Info Development"
Topic-based Information Development
March 27, 2:00 PM PACIFIC TIME
Register at: adobe.ly/ZsLLS5

Topic-based, modular information development is a technique, rather than a
technology. The change in writing technique from document-centric to
topic-based can be a challenge for many technical writers. The biggest
challenge when moving to topic-based paradigms such as DITA has proven to
be the "major change in the document-centric mindset" required. The
important changes in technical writing practice include the separation of
content and form, using modular information units, document assembly,
context-neutral writing, map and manifest files, and document assembly.

This webinar will cover:

== Influences on technical communication approaches
== What topic-based information development is
== The different skills required for good topic-based writing
== The role of semantics in single-source topic-based approaches

About the Presenter: Based in Melbourne, Australia, Dr Tony Self has over
30 years of experience as a technical communicator. For over 20 years, Tony
has worked in the areas of online help systems, computer-based training,
and XML documents. In 1993, he founded HyperWrite, a company providing
training and consultancy in structured authoring, Help systems, DITA, and
technology strategy. Tony completed his PhD in semantic mark-up languages
in 2011, and his book The DITA Style Guide was published in the same year.
He is a member of the OASIS DITA Technical Committee (and chair of the DITA
Help Subcommittee), is an adjunct teaching fellow at Swinburne University,
and is the Director of Training for TCTrainNet, a training initiative of
tekom, the German professional association for technical communicators.

Call For Proposals - Technical Communication UK (TCUK) – September 24-26,
2013 Bristol, UK



Technical Communication UK (TCUK) (http://technicalcommunicationuk.com/)
which takes place in Bristol from 24th to 26th September 2013 is the UK’s
leading technical communication event, and without a doubt the friendliest
professional conference you can find.


As well as three days of workshops and presentations, TCUK is your
opportunity to meet and network with other technical communicators from
across the UK and many other countries. We have planned social activities
including receptions and a Gala Dinner (where we present the ISTC's annual
technical communication awards). In previous years delegates have organised
a number of popular conference fringe events, from quiz events and
late-night salsa dancing to early morning runs, and there are sure to be
similar activities this year.

The call for proposals is open but closes on 5th April, so if you want to
have a chance to speak at TCUK make sure you submit your ideas on time.
Regardless of whether you want to present for the first time or you are a
seasoned conference speaker, we want to hear from you. We don’t mind if you
are new to technical communication or if you have worked in this field for
ever, if you have something to say to other technical communicators then
TCUK 2013 is your chance to say it.


As well as topics relating to our specialist stream The Management of
Technical Communication, you may submit proposals on any topic that you
feel will be of interest to technical communication professionals. Have a
look at the list of suggested topics (
http://technicalcommunicationuk.com/index.php/archives/29) and use that as
a jumping off point for your imagination. What do you think would be of
interest to other technical communicators? We're waiting to hear from you.
