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.
Your use of 'person(s) responsible for QA/QC' prompts my question. To
what extent are tech-writers getting involved in ISO9000 issues? Would
someone point me to the source of ISO/DIS 10013 - Guidelines for
Producing Quality Manuals. Is this document available for download?
Please forgive me if this is off-topic.
