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.
I tend to prefer the word "update" (update the screen display) over
"refresh" or "redraw", both of which assume that the reader
understands how a CRT works. Update seems more obvious and requires
less knowledge of VDTs, thus, perhaps easier for many readers.
