In sum

Clarity in technical information covers a broad range of issues, most of which you can resolve at the level of words and sentences. You need to be aware of possible meanings that someone might read into what you write, other than what you intended. This awareness is particularly important when translators and nonnative speakers might use your information.

Use the guidelines in this chapter to ensure that technical information is clear to your audience. Refer to the examples in the chapter for practical applications of these guidelines.
