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.

Skill Sets:
In addition to the solid Research, language, writing, and revision skills, a technical writer may have skills in:
1. Information design
2. Information Architecture
3. Training Material Development
4. Illustration / Graphic Design
5. Website Design Management
6. Indexing
7. Localisation / Technical Translation
8. User Interfaces
9. Business Analysis.

A Technical writer may apply their skills in the production of non-technical content, for example, writing high level consumer information.

Roles & Functions:
Effectively Analyze the Rhetorical situation creating effective technical documentation is driven by the writer's analysis of three elements that comprise the rhetorical situation of a particular project:
1. Audience Analysis
2. Purpose
3. Context

Eligibility:
Technical Writers are typically required to hold Bachelor's Degree. While some technical writers enter the occupation with degrees applicable to technical specialty, most have a degree in English, Journalism, Communications or a related field. Some colleges and universities offer bachelors degree programs in English with concentrations in writing. These programs consist of 4 Year curricula that provides students with a solid grasp of English and Communication Skills so that they may write across a variety of genres and fields. Courses may includes:
1. Technical Writing
2. Writing Theory
3. Journalism
4. Fiction
5. Non-Fiction
6. Editing
7. Web Writing.

Careers Growth:
There is not necessarily one standard career path for technical writers, but they may move into project management over other writers. 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.

Further doubts or queries feel free to contact.
