Technical Writing

Home / Technical Writing



Some people believe that if you design a product well enough, no technical documentation is required – a serious error in judgment. Because, proper technical writing contains the crucial information required by consumers who want to use a product, any attempt to cut costs by ignoring it is guaranteed to result in far greater after-sales expense, and extensive damage-control as well. Hiring a local journalist to write your technical documentation is another mistake. Whether it’s for hardware or software, home appliances, consumer electronics, medical procedures or environmental regulations, good technical writing provides useful information in a user-friendly, clear and simple manner, clarifying jargon rather than adding to the confusion by using it.

Tone is just one thing that sets technical writing apart from journalism. Here, the subject matter rules, and the author’s style is secondary to achieving the goal of communicating clearly about the highly specialized topic at hand. The writing style is workmanlike rather than literary, and precision matters more than elegance.

Technical writing comes in many forms: online and print user manuals, tutorials, installation and troubleshooting guides, product release notes, marketing and legal information, to name just a few.
