My tech editing job involved ESL (English Second Language)
editing. I worked in the Computer Science department of a
Chinese university improving the English in papers before
they were submitted to international journals or conferences.
Most were by PhD candidates, some from faculty or other

I did not have to worry much about technical questions.
The students' supervisors or the journal referees dealt
with those, so I was free to concentrate on the English.
I suspect that this would not be the case in all editing

New! Doc-to-Help 2013 features the industry's first HTML5 editor for authoring.
