For the first time, our French-language stylebook is available as a web-based, fully searchable version via a password-protected account. The Online Stylebook is for users who:

  • Prefer using a search engine to quickly find what’s needed, instead of thumbing through an index?
  • Prefer to create an online, searchable archive of their own notes, examples, style entries and hard-to-spell words, instead of writing in the margins or attaching sticky notes.

Online Stylebook subscribers benefit from:

  • The convenience of using their writing style guide wherever they have internet access.
  • The speed of real-time email alerts when our stylebooks editor adds or updates style entries.
    No more waiting for the next edition to be printed!
  • The flexibility of using search tools or browsing by popular topics or chapter.
