Thames Valley Group Meeting – 3 February 2015

The next meeting is on Tuesday 3rd February 2015 at the Bird In Hand Pub Knowl Hill, Reading at 19.30.  Food is available for those who wish to eat.

We will be discussing foreign languages (we have Russian, Mandarin and Polish speakers in the group) to see how we can improve our writing with regards to foreign language speakers.  For example, many languages do not have an equivalent concept of definite and indefinite articles.

All are welcome but if you would like to attend it would be helpful if you could please register your interest by following this link to Eventbrite: http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/thames-valley-area-monthly-meet-tickets-14224244097

Welcome to the ISTC website

The Institute of Scientific and Technical Communicators is the largest UK body representing information development professionals. Its members create or manage information that has an impact on people. This includes creating user guides, manuals, installation instructions, operating and safety procedures, business processes, training materials and software user assistance.

We encourage professional development, training courses in technical communication, standards, research resources and networking opportunities for our members and industry affiliates. The ISTC also promotes the value of technical communication and the profession.

West of Scotland area group meeting 28 October 2014: meeting report

Our latest area group meeting took place on Tuesday 28th October at Waxy O’Connors. A new group member joined us, and we discussed topics such as which kinds of organisations employ technical communicators, which tools are important to new technical writers, career progression, etc.

We also have news about the group’s management: Charles Addison, one of our group regulars, will be taking over the area group organiser role from Katja McLaughlin.
