if you are involved in some German at work, help is not far away. Techwr-l is
available at my BBS, that is supported by both tekom, the German society for
technical communicators, and BDUe, the German society for translators and
interpreters. If I find a specific message here, I will even copy it to one of
the internal newsgroups, which are much smaller than Techwr-l. There are some
400 people from all over Germany, who can read Techwr-l here without Internet

If you wish to access the headquaters of tekom, send mail to
tek-b -dot- beutte -at- geod -dot- geonet -dot- de -dot- There is no e-mail access for the BDUe
headquarters that I am aware of. But you will find a competent partner if you
send mail to Richard -dot- Schneider -at- twh -dot- msn -dot- sub -dot- org -dot-

tekom and BDUe have regional chapters. If you come to Germany, I might be able
to connect you to German collegues. BDUe even has public member lists, if you
need a German translator or interpreter.

I am a graduated electronics/software engineer. I work as a free-lance
technical writer in areas that range from service manuals to context-sensitive
online-documentation. I might translate to German. But I will not translate
to English professionally - you native speakers will understand why :-)
