TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Given that we technical writers inherit lots of documents from engineers and programmers, this list of alternatives for legalese applies just as much to those sorts of documents as it does to legal documents. Of course, if our subject matter experts/document originators applied this list (not likely), we might encounter further erosion of the demand for our services <grin>. Of course, there'd still be plenty of work for us converting passive voice to active voice, structuring documents rationally, and all those other things we do that add value.
