John Revington reviews the latest StyleWriter 4.
He finds ‘StyleWriter 4 has plenty to offer, even to the most experienced technical communicator. None of us knows it all, nor can we spot every mistake. To have a subeditor at your shoulder will undoubtedly improve the language quality of your document and bolster your confidence.’

‘It offers a structured, objective, yet flexible way to edit documents, as well as acting as a tutor, helping you learn about the complexities of our rich language.’
‘Having used StyleWriter on several thousand pages of business and technical documents, I realise I have I have come to rely on it, not just for its sharp ‘eye’ and consistent advice, but also as a tool to measure the value we, as technical communicators can add…’
‘If the idea of having an unbiased, ever-alert, and knowledgeable companion to help you improve your writing appeals to you, then StyleWriter 4 is definitely worth befriending.’
