Technical Writing

Technical communications refers to contents that are specialized, targeting a specific audience, which are conveying messages that are technical by nature.

What is important when creating technical documentation?

  • Optimization – based on intended final format/media (i.e. web and/or print)
  • Version control and update processes
  • Archiving, backup and recovery processes
  • Delivery channels and formats

What is the process of writing technical materials?

There are few ways of approaching the development of technical materials.  The most common way is incorporating it in the overall Product lifecycle.  For instance, for a software product, the first draft of documentation can be created as soon as the technical requirements have been clarified and approved.  Technical documentation is regularly validated during User Acceptance Test and immediately after it is completed.  But, in some other projects, the first draft is done after the first iteration.
Nevertheless, the approach has to be assessed and decided upon in collaboration with Product Management
