Day in the Life: Story of a Tech Writer

Data Conversion Laboratory 14 Feb 2023
A guest blog post by Dipo Ajose-Coker, Product Ambassador at Componize, ,Software I’ve been wanting to write about this for a while and I finally plucked the courage to write a short post about: A day in the life of a Technical writer. Inspired by a desire to have a ready explanation for every Christmas dinner with the family, when I get asked the question: “What exactly do you do?” and “What is a technical writer?” So, my elevator speech to a 10-year old. A technical writer is someone who helps people to understand how to use things like computers, mobile phones, machines, toys, and even medication. After the writer talks to the engineers who built or created the thing they need to write about, a technical writer then imagines they are the person that has to use the machine and finds a way to explain how to use, repair or maintain it in a way that is easy for them to understand. This way, even if you’re not an expert yourself, you can learn how to use the things you need to use or how and when to take the medicine.
