    Electronic Dictionary

    Hello everybody,

    Ever thought of an electronic dictionary ?

    Check Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Talking Dictionary and Thesaurus. Is anyone using such a product? Is this available in India ?

    Mar 23, 2004 : The Online User Group and Reference Site for Adobe FrameMaker

    It's called the world's largest Online FrameMaker reference site and community of users.  After going through the site, that may well be true.  It's definitely a site to be associated with for all tech writers. Visit it, if you haven't already.

    Technical writing internships

    Hi Folks,

    Nice to see such an active Blog on technical writing on this part of the world! I joined the group a few minutes back and would like to know your views on a topic.

    Do any you know about companies that give internships to aspiring technical writers?

    I have been getting requests for internships from communication students who are eager to enter technical writing. Since we don't have any university-level courses on technical writing, I think it becomes our responsibility to help the aspirants enter the field because we face a dearth of good, trained talents in the field to meet the amazing number of openings.

    Communication students in universities study different aspects of mass communication and forms of writing as part of their course, which makes them capable of starting a career in this field, but a person needs to know processes like SDLC, authoring tools and some amount of hands-on experience to start a career. Can't we help them with such opportunities?

    An internship won't cost your company anything, but it will get the assistance of a trained communicator for a period of two months or so, which can be made mutually beneficial. If your company is in the lookout of trained talent, such a tenure can give your company a prospective employee who will be readily productive from the very first day. If not, you will be helping a person build a career while utilizing his/her services for a specified period of time.

    Let's discuss this topic if it is of interest to you.
