My family and I will be in France this summer -- I'm so excited! -- and
I'd like to be able to tell people we meet what I do. So what's
"technical writer" in French? Or should I just say that I'm a writer of
software manuals? In that case, what's "software" in French? Not to
mention "computer" . . . I know, not everybody writes software manuals,
but I do. My respects to those tech writers who don't. Please feel free
to ask for the words that matter to you.

Oh, and we may be popping into Germany briefly, so if anybody knows what
the aforementioned words are in German, please post that, too.

Merci beaucoup! Vielen Dank! Thanks very much!

BNA and I have a deal -- I don't speak for the company, and
it doesn't speak for me.
