1. Quarterly Meeting: Challenges in Editing When English is Not the Writers' Native Language

Join us for an informative discussion on editing writers for whom
English is not their native language.

In this webinar, Melanie G. Flanders, a technical editor working in Nanjing, China, will draw upon her strong technical editing and writing background as well as her understanding of the Chinese culture and Mandarin language to:
  • Share her experience working with Chinese authors and translators
  • Address the challenges of working with writers where English is not their native language
  • Provide advice on editing material where key information is missing

The webinar is free to SIG members. For more information and to register, visit the following link:
