"A technical write is built with the knowledge of at least half a library."



#"Technical communication is a field that focuses on providing information to users who need help to attain some certain goals and tasks. The purpose of technical communication is not to entertain people. The focus of technical communication is to assist users who need specific information on using products, completing tasks, operating equipment, and completing other types of activities. Although many people today think of technical writing as creating manuals for computers and software, the practice of technical writing takes place in any field or industry where complex ideas, concepts, processes or procedures need to be communicated. Like any profession, becoming a technical writer requires a mastery of a certain set of skills. This skill set used to involve primarily writing and illustration skills, as large manuals for print publication were the standard in the profession."

  •   Writing skills
  •   Technical skills

  •   Organizing skills
  •   Design skills

Topic-specific

The topic is the star of the show till the end and we take care not to deviate or run into adjoining alleys of topics while writing the content.

Unbiased view

Since we do not use the active voice as well as the first person account, we do not involve personal ideas and views inside the content.
