Technical Writing Tips

by: Diana Barnum

Need some technical writing tips to keep you at the top of the field?

Technical writing is a specialized field which not only demands an in depth knowledge of the subject on which you are writing, but also a good command of the written language.

A common main goal is to translate tech-speak into everyday familiar jargon for the average reader. In other words, your content needs to be understood.

Do you want to start a career as a high paid tech writer but don't know where to start? I recommend Business and Technical Writing. It can help you get started in the field and help you find out how to land the best technical writing jobs.

To help keep tech translation plain and simple, here are some tips:

  • Plan ahead. Determine the main focus, i.e. what the readers need to learn from your content. Ask yourself, what are their expectations from your technical writing article?
  • Take care to match your content to the level of knowledge of the audience. Don’t underestimate your audience and write down to them. But do watch the level of your tech-speak.
  • Ask someone to proof read your material who represents the reading audience. Your not looking for creative writing tips, just a level of understanding.
  • Add a glossary if necessary for your technical terms. Or place short explanations of the terms in brackets within the piece.
  • When possible, incorporate technical writing examples and illustrations to get your points across.
  • If your data is complicated use graphs, diagrams and / or flow charts to make it visually expressive.
  • Experiment with different software to enhance your presentations. For example, add audio / video.
  • Make sure you understand the technical writing process. It is typically the same in different industries. It differs depending on whether the technical writing process is at a large or a small company.

There are Some excellent books out there that can get you started in this great writing career.  Take a look at:
