Technical editing students available to review papers by non-native English speakers

Ryan BoettgerStudents in a senior-level technical editing class in the Department of Linguistics and Technical Communication are in search of non-native English speakers.

These students want speakers of English as a second language who might benefit from having a paper edited. They will edit 15 double-spaced pages for free. These pages can be from an article or a thesis and can be on any subject. Each editor will meet with the student for a half hour to explain suggestions and grammatical issues. The editing will be complete by Nov. 23.

Faculty and staff should refer interested students to Ryan Boettger, left, assistant professor of linguistics and technical communication. Documents to be edited may be e-mailed to Boettger; include academic major and native language. Boettger will assign a student-editor to the project.

“This is the second year my students have worked on this project,” said Boettger. “Last year, students worked with clients from a variety of disciplines, including engineering, rehabilitation counseling, chemistry, interior design, information science and education. Their non-native clients spoke a variety of languages, including Mandarin, Cantonese, Spanish, Turkish, German, Nepali, Persian, Thai, Indonesian and Marathi.”
