Recently, Christian gave an interesting talk how to write correct technical/business English. I hope I can adopt the rules he mentioned, both for my technical writing in papers and in this weblog. Concerning this weblog, I should most importantly try to avoid any expressions that might be perceived as rude, offensive or in any other way inappropriate. This probably isn’t as easy as it sounds as different cultures perceive things differently.
The slides of Christian’s presentation are available on request only (Send him an e-mail message). As a good starting point, he also recommends reading “The Elements of Style” by William Strunk, Jr. which appears to be a classic. Another good web resource: The following Wiki entry.
