Developing Company Editing Standards

This article is nothing dramatically new, but it is a good summary. Developing Company Editing Standards, by Kristine Haugseth.

This presentation covers how to develop editing standards for content. It provides tips on how to get started when no conventions exist and how to improve coverage of topics when time and resources are limited. It describes how to get buy-in for editing standards from management and project members. This topic is of interest to all editors because pushback against editing changes is very common, and consistency is difficult to maintain without coworkers’ buy-in to established standards.
