WHAT IS TECHNICAL WRITING ?

Technical Writing is a unique and diverse field, which integrates itself in the field of all latest technologies on the face of the Earth. It is a creative and artistic field where one can expertise himself in all the cutting edge technologies and thus, having an edge over other professional career options. It has made his mark in all the fields computer hardware and software, aerospace industry, robotics, finance, consumer electronics, and biotechnology. It communicates technical (specialized) information, generally in the form of user manuals, training materials, information guides and many. These may be printed or portable documentation such as PDF or online help. In today’s customer-centric business model, an organization’s user manuals and technical write-ups act as its public face and also reflect its level of professionalism.



A Technical Writer is a professional writer who designs, creates, maintains, and updates technical documentation including online help, user guides, white papers, design specifications, and other documents. Engineers, scientists, and other professionals may also produce technical writing, often handling their work to a professional technical writer for editing and formatting.

A Technical Writer is one who communicates information about a technical subject, pointed at a specific audience for a specific purpose. The challenge for a good Technical Writer is to convey the information clearly, briefly and in a language that is understandable yet is suited to the requirements of the audience.

No matter which industry you're considering for a career, it probably employs technical communicators.

They are an indispensable part of today's technological society.

In larger organizations, Technical Writers can advance to Information Designer, Senior Technical Writer, or Project Manager Positions and even System Architect. Promotion often takes the form of increased responsibility and pay rises.

Technical Writer is the most commonly used job title for this occupation. Other titles used include Communications Specialist, Policy and Procedure Writer, Proposal Writer, Publications Specialist, Documentation Specialist, Information Developer, Technical Editor, Web Editor, and Information Designer.

Future trend /market trend     Up

The high tech market is booming (usually!) and demand-driven by the computer industry--for technical communicators is very high. In fact there is actually a shortage of technical writers in the United States, India and Canada, and is rapidly turning that way in other countries. Thus, employers are open to recruit entry-level writers who wish to break into the field.

Thus, technical writing is one of the best paying jobs for those who wish to use their writing talents. The booming market for technical writers should parallel the continuing mushrooming growth of the computer, telecommunications and other high tech industries. Thus, there should be some measure of job security or at least the ability to find another job quickly should you be laid off.

There is acute shortage of more than 50% of trained technical writers in indian markets.
