One of our most enduring tasks is the work we’ve done since 2003 to ensure that students at Hong Kong’s largest university, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, have clear and concise information at their fingertips in their student prospectuses. Starting with the final hardcopy prospectuses in 2003-4, we took on the challenge of adapting to and integrating our workflow with the PolyU Academic Secretariat’s content management system the following year. Since then, we’ve edited academic programme entries, student testimonials and general descriptive articles on various aspects of the university each year.
A significant aspect of the early part of this project was collaboration with the Academic Secretariat to produce grammar and style guidelines, both for the production team in print format and for contributing academic authors in the form of online selectable phrases.
In mid-2016, we began our eighth contract for the project.
