Needed: A Revision of the Lowest Level of Editing
Abstract:Most levels of editing systems provide benefits to the technical editor, but they are structured to treat the author's main concern—the content of technical documents—only at the higher levels. This article discusses why a system so structured is increasingly untenable, and a revision of the lowest level of editing is proposed to address the issues of primary concern to all three major parties in producing a publication: the organization, the author, and the technical editor.
