Technical Writing

When most people think of writers, they think of fiction writers struggling to produce great novels. With the exception of those very few writers who make bestseller lists, far more writers make a living in technical writing than in any other writing job.

Technical writing is great for writers who have good technical aptitude. Technical writers these days are often software documentation writers, but many are writers documenting hardware (anything from washing machines to aircraft carriers), medical and pharmaceutical products, and other technical subjects.

Of course, you need more than just writing skills to be a good tech writer. You've also got to be able to learn technical material by reading engineering documents (specs in the software business), talk with SMEs (that's Subject Matter Experts), and work with the product (unless it's a nuclear warhead or something similar). Your goal is to acquire a thorough knowledge of the product so you can then turn around and explain it in your document.

Books on technical writing

Here are current top-selling books of interest to technical writers. You can also search Amazon for more books on technical documentation. And you might have a look at some of our related pages, including technical editing, science writing, medical writing, writing online help, document management, project management, Word, FrameMaker, Acrobat, XML, HTML, Visio, Flash, Dreamweaver, and RoboHelp for books on your specialty or preferred tools as a tech writer.
