Can point out major works needs to be done by technical writer
Below are the main work and responsibilities of a technical writer:
A technical writer has to meet the clients and gather the requirements. The meetings are set for this purpose where the client writer interaction takes place. During these meetings, they have to understand the project well and get the necessary information from the clients.
After the discussions with clients, the technical writers have to work with their team and the management in planning and scheduling the project. The various tasks are assigned to different people in these meetings. In this case the technical writers have to ensure that they will meet the deadlines as per the plan and there won't be any delay in the project.
Then starts the main work of the technical writers - to write. The writing is done carefully as there are many technicalities involved in this kind of work. They need to clearly understand the concepts and functionality behind every thing that they are writing and therefore make the writing contribution in the most effective manner. They also have to ensure that the writing is done in a simple manner so that it doesn't cause any problem to the reader. For that purpose they have to consider reader's requirements in mind and understand the reader's psyche well.
Once the writing is done, or in a stage of completion, the technical writers have to get the approval of the senior management or the clients and convince them that the writing is done effectively and the project has been a successful one. It's only the client who can decide that and therefore once can never be sure about how many changes they may have to do even after the initial work.
The technical writers have to maintain the records and details of all the information regarding their work and the project. They also need to keep a track of the number of hours they have worked on and how many words they have written which is often the criteria for payment.
Engineers, Scientists and other professionals may also produce technical writing, but often hand it off to a professional technical writer for developmental editing, proofreading, editing and formatting.
