Event Details

In this first session in STC France's community webinar summer series, John R. Kohl will give an overview of his award-winning book, The Global English Style Guide: Writing Clear, Translatable Documentation for a Global Market. He will provide plenty of before-and-after examples to illustrate the following topics:

  • How to make your sentences easier for non-native speakers to comprehend.
  • How to eliminate ambiguities that lead to confusion, misinterpretations, and incorrect translations.
  • Types of terms and phrases that you should not use when you are communicating with a global audience.

John will explain some not-so-obvious benefits of mastering the Global English guidelines, and he’ll briefly discuss software that can be used to help writers and editors follow many of the Global English guidelines.
