Hire Freelance Technical Writers

Technical writing involves writing about a particular subject in either a directional, instructional or explanatory tone. The purpose of this style of writing is very different from creative or academic writing. The main aim of these writer is to provide technical information or instructions about a particular subject. Some examples of this type of writing includes instruction manuals, policy documents, user manuals, reports and process manuals.

What Technical Writers Do?

Technical writers usually fill the roles of both writers and researchers, as they perform extensive research about the document and its contents, and then write it in a formal and impersonal language. They usually begin by understanding their audience which helps them decide the extent to which they need to explain technical details, abbreviations, and acronyms. They gather sufficient technical information to be included in the document and make a rough draft with the section and sub-section headings and the points that need to be covered in each of these. After ensuring that the draft has all the details that need to be addressed, they then start working on the final technical document, making sure that the writing is impersonal, straightforward, thorough and instructional.

  • Is familiar with the style, tone, language, format and content of technical documents.

  • Possesses subject matter expertise or is capable of performing extensive research in order to draft your technical document.

  • Can write in an instructional format if your technical document has instructional or educational content.

  • Has an extensive portfolio of technical documents written in different styles and for various purposes.

  • An educational background in either writing with a degree in English, journalism or communications, or a degree in a technical specialty
