Dear Colleagues,

I am planning to do a free screencast series for all writers. It will cover the basic rules of writing English source texts for MT and readability.

The series should consist of 5 ten-minute parts that show me ironing out English texts.

Rules I want to cover are:
- Use simple verbs and adjectives, or avoid them altogether
- Write short sentences
- Avoid gerunds
- Don't use the passive voice
- etc.

I am looking for input from other practicioners. Which frequent mistakes bug you? What advice do you have to give? Which topics would you like to hear covered?
