Greetings from Paris, (not Texas, but France, home of EuroDisney).

Many foreign countries, such as Europe, have modern economies and hence
offer as many TW jobs as the US. In Paris right now any
English-mother-tongue tech writer regardless of qualification can get some
sort of a job. Well no, that's an exaggeration. Your body must have a pulse
and be physically located in Paris.

As far as foreign, er, local, culture and language is concerned, it can be
safely ignored. (Not that one should or I do.) In most international
corporations the official internal language is English. Expats are notorious
for living here for years with virtually no contact with the locals. They
can be seen driving to the mall, oblivious to "foreign" traffic regulations,
wandering around Marks & Spencer and Gap discussing that morning's news seen
on CNN....

There's a nice site about working in England at
