The Language of Technical Communication is the latest volume in The Content Wrangler Content Strategy Book Series.
As with the previous book in this series, The Language of Content Strategy, this book contains definitions of terms that practitioners need to know. The terms are divided into five categories: Core Concepts, Technical Concepts, Standards and Conventions, Deliverable Presentations, and Future Directions.
The terms range from accessibility to topic-based authoring to artificial intelligence to wearables, everything from basic terms that will be familiar to most technical communicators to terms that are just coming into view.
Each term is authored by an expert in that area, and each expert contributed a definition, a statement of importance, and an essay describing why technical communicators need to know their term. Together, these terms form the basis of a common vocabulary across a wide spectrum of specialties in technical communication.
