Example Citation:
In the United States, there are now highly paid professionals charged with translating obscure technical language, although we are not greatly filled with hope about the chances of their success as even their job description charters dangerously murky linguistic waters.

They are called "information tamers," or "information designers," and they are the new wave of corporate language mangler wranglers. The necessity for their very existence proves that the war is far from over.

Information tamers turn industry, scientific, and technical gobbledegook into documents and Web content anyone can understand.
