Technical Writing/Editing

Articulate 

Technical writing is used anytime technical information must be conveyed by text. The text will explain the scientific or specialized details and guide the reader in how to use that information. The writer must have a sufficiently broad understanding of the subject matter that will ensure the text is accurate and communicates the necessary data most efficiently.

While the reader does not need to know all the details, they do need to have a depth of knowledge to utilize the crucial elements presented. 

The main purpose of technical writing is to provide complex information to readers in a way that they can understand and apply that information.

Characteristics of Technical Writing

Clear – Technical writing presents information clearly

Straightforward – relaying information in a way that is direct and straight to the point

Precise – be very precise, describing objects and procedures in an exact manner

Easily understood –  avoid words that people may not understand 

Denotative meanings – relies on the denotative meanings of words to ensure that misunderstandings don’t occur due to differing interpretations based on connotation

Detailed – detailed and informative, leaving nothing to the imagination

Very structured – needs to have an obvious composition that makes it easy for readers to follow along in a step-by-step fashion

Skimmable -should be designed with skimmability in mind, so it’s easy for readers to scan through the full document and easily find information they need

Problem-solving focus – readers use these documents to learn how to perform certain tasks or gain technical information, so they should be easy to follow and organized in a way that’s easy to reference
