Technical Writing and Documentation Services
What is a technical writer?
In complex industries like the medical, technology, and manufacturing fields, technical writing services are used to simplify information for the end user. A technical writer is highly skilled at developing technical content such as user guides, release notes, training manuals, FAQs and white papers. They are specialized writers who perform discovery sessions with subject matter experts and often have the knowledge base of an engineer, scientist, lawyer, or developer.
While many organizations may have in-house writers, in most cases, they do not have the technical expertise or writing skills needed to develop the most complex technical documentation. Or in other instances, they may be “too close” to the content and an outside objective writer is needed.
