Subject:translating video From:Peg Rickard <rickard -at- NICMAD -dot- NICOLET -dot- COM> Date:Fri, 14 Jun 1996 07:51:39 CDT
I have heard that one should not use contractions when writing technical
manuals slated for translation. In reading the literature on producing
videos, I found that one should use contractions and other rules that
violate the "writing for translations" guidelines. Can anyone tell me if
the " translation writing guidelines" differ for video? Are there any
rules hanging around out there?
Thanks in advance for sharing your wisdom.
