Technical Writing


Why is quality technical writing in such high demand among corporate Americana? That’s because it requires a highly unique skillset, one that entails a wide range of abilities. Aside from the obvious literary skills and fluency with advanced software applications, a technical writer must also serve as a translator of sorts. Working alongside a host of technically-savvy engineers, programmers, and developers, the skilled technical writer takes highly complex source material and converts it into simple, concise text for an audience of end users.

With over ten years of full-time technical writing experience at such corporations as VCE, Teradyne, Inc., SunGard Finacial Services, and TIE Kinetix (to name a few), I can produce a variety of user documentation, including:

  • User Guides/Manuals
  • Product Help Files (CHM, HTML, etc.)
  • Release Notifications
  • User Memos
  • HTML Readme files
  • Internal Instructional Documentation

Throughout my ten-plus years of technical writing, I have become highly proficient in publishing software applications such as Adobe Acrobat, MS Word, MS Excel, MS FrontPage, Dreamweaver, RoboHelp, Madcap Flare, Visual Source Safe, SnagIt, FrameMaker, and many more.
