Questions to ask new clientsApril 5, 2011
Over at CopyBlogger (http://www.copyblogger.com/), Carol Tice has come up with 40 questions every copywriter should ask a new client (http://www.copyblogger.com/copywriter-client-questions/).
Almost every question in this comprehensive also applies to technical writers (just substitute ‘technical writer/writing’ for ‘copy writer/writing’).
The only questions I’d add would be related to authoring tools and deliverables, especially for software documentation.
