Dear Sir/Madam,


Greeting's for the day!!!

A Technical Writer is a Professional Writer who engages in technical writing and produces technical documentation for technical, business and consumer audiences. The Institute of Scientific and Technical Communicators defines the profession as preparing information that helps users who use the product. This documentation includes online help, user guides/manuals, white papers, design specifications, system manuals, project plans, test plans, business correspondence, etc. Technical Writer create documentation in many forms, such as printed, web-based or other electronic means.

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.

6. Indexing
7. Localisation / Technical Translation
8. User Interfaces
9. Business Analysis.

A writer may advance to senior technical writer position, handling complex projects, or a small team of writers and editors. In large groups, a documentation manager might handle multiple projects and teams.
