The Internet age has doubled and redoubled the impact of organizational and individual behaviors. Successes and failures are transmitted through legacy media and retransmitted by “social media,” websites and blogs. Errors in grammar, spelling and punctuation thus exact ever-higher prices.
Businesses can lose sales and revenue when prospective customers or clients assume that organizations involved may be equally careless in dealing with them. The impact is just as great when media commit the same errors. Those responsible may lose promotions or jobs.
Watch-Your-Language is an organization of experienced writers and editors created to help businesses, individuals and the media guard against errors of all kinds. Staff members have honed their skills for decades in journalism, public relations, and university teaching.
