The TCLoc master’s is proud to announce that it has joined once again the Adobe Tech Comm University Outreach Program. Thanks to this academic partnership with Adobe, TCLoc students will have access to the Adobe Technical Communication Suite in order to gain firsthand, practical experience with these leading software tools for creating and editing technical documentation.

“With our master’s program in technical communication and localization, we seek to provide courses that give students opportunities for hands-on, practical application of the competencies they acquire during their coursework using the best tools available,” says Dr. Renate de la Paix, program director. She continues, “The Technical Communication Suite is the most popular collection of tools used by the industry for creating and editing technical documentation. In our Technical Publishing class, for example, we use Adobe FrameMaker because it allows users to publish natively across channels, mobile devices, and formats, and to create content with best-in-class XML/DITA support.”

The TCLoc master’s focuses on practical skills. By using the latest versions of leading tools such as FrameMaker, Captivate, and RoboHelp, students will be prepared for employment in the technical communication industry. Thank you, Adobe, for enabling our students to use the Technical Communication Suite free of charge for study purposes!
