What is a Technical Author/Writer?
A technical writer creates technical documentation for various purposes and for various audiences. In essence, their job is to present textual information in a manner appropriate to the target reader.
Take this quote from the wikipedia page for example.
“A technical writer is a professional information communicator whose task is to transfer information between two or more parties, through any medium that best facilitates the transfer and comprehension of the information. Technical writers research and create information through a variety of delivery media.“
There is often a need to document systems and equipment in a very technical and precise way. For example, this is particularly important for system specifications. In this case, the documents are to be read by development engineers, technicians or software programmers. As such, the use of technical expressions and relevant language is appropriate and may even be expected.
However, sometimes the task is to ‘translate’ technical systems and documents into plain language. For instance, when creating user manuals the end user may not be a technically minded person. Therefore, the desire here is to create a text that fully describes the product but does so with appropriate language. Consequently, the resulting text should be easily understood by any likely reader.
I have a solution and an expert author who can help with whatever you need. Moreover, we can ensure that your communications are received and understood by the reader. In short, this helps avoid confusion, misunderstandings and disappointing results.
