The following is a simple checklist for technical writers:
1. Use standard, conventional English. Stick to the basics as many companies localize and translate technical documents to multiple languages. The linguistic rules and guidelines for translation are based on standard usage, and not on unconventional or nonstandard writing.
2. Use standard sentence structure. This is a major issue faced by non-native writers. Always stick to the accepted standards of writing clear and simple sentences.
What is the difference between Among and Amongst? Is there any standard/rule somewhere that suggests using one over the other or do they mean the same?
Yes, writers have to sell their skills in IT-organizations - not to get the job, but after they land a job in an IT-organization. While most IT-organizations are realizing the need for hiring skilled writers to handle their technical and organizational documentation, they are not fully aware of the potential of the writers they hire.
