Microsoft Editor in the Federal Government Context
Microsoft now offers an Editor function to help writers identify and correct common grammatical, mechanical, and stylistic errors. The function works like an expanded version of Spell Check. In general, the guidance Microsoft Editor offers is based on the commonly accepted rules of standard written English. However, in a few cases, the guidance conflicts with federal government writing standards, as outlined in the Government Publication Office Style Manual, 2016 or other best practices for scientific and technical writing, in which I specialize. In this resource, I explain Microsoft Editor’s guidance in the federal government context. To access it, press the button below, "Download PDF Now."
