    I have worked in software development for 15 years both as coder implementing backend (Java) and front technologies (HTML, CSS) as well as a software architect.

    I am a native English speaker and scientist with strong technical writing skills. I can grasp and implement complex concepts quickly. Then I write about them concisely and clearly. In my most recent role as a freelance technical writer and editor, I use InDesign or Word to create understandable, thorough product instruction manuals. I also write, review, and edit reports, manuals, website copy, standard operating procedures (SOPs), and instructions, always striving for uniformity, clarity, and accuracy. I've also prepared supporting Word reports, Excel documents, and PowerPoint presentations for technical reports, expenditure justifications, and peer reviews. In my twenty years of experience in petroleum field exploration and appraisal geoscience, I proofread numerous documents at a multinational company, wrote sales flyers for multimillion-dollar data-room sales efforts, and presented prospects to outside energy companies. My biggest life accomplishment is helping discover three major deep-water oil and gas fields, proving up nearly 1.5 BBOE of recoverable hydrocarbons worth about $60,000,000,000.

    Automotive Engineer by profession; Petrolhead by choice! I've been the Ghostwriter on an exclusive, bespoke on Supercars, bikes & planes. Subsequent to the successful completion of this piece I've written articles on everything from "how to articles" around practical guides to carrying out repairs, to copy for performance workshops and sales outlets around the world. I've established a long-term research and writing relationship with a European company that facilitates seminars and workshops for OEM's and first tier industry suppliers. This has expanded to my own monthly column where I focus on current topical events and developments within the industry. I'm conscientious, an independent free thinker with the engineering discipline of logic and the ability to research difficult topics. I only write challenging articles and deliver on time. Examples of my work are available to all interested parties. Hope to hear from you Peter

    I'm here to help you write great documentation for your software projects. The kind of docs that make readers say, "I love these docs!" My specialty is documentation for developer audiences: API docs, programming tutorials, and implementation guides. I also write research-based longform articles about technical topics. ## Experience Previously I worked at Grafana Labs. Specifically, I oversaw the docs for the load-testing tool, k6. These docs are well-loved in the developer community: I encourage you to read the k6 OSS docs, or search the G2 reviews for k6―just `ctrl+f` and type "docs". I care about users, readers, and design. I also have extensive experience as a freelancer for all types of projects. I was a teacher before I was a technical writer. And still I think of technical writing as a form of teaching. ## Technology Linux and open-source enthusiast. Decent scripting skills with JavaScript and Bash. Familiar writing Python and SQL. Experience with many major authoring tools and static site generators: Hugo, Gatsby, Docusaurus, Jekyll. Markdown, Asciidoc, and so on. Very comfortable with the OpenAPI (Swagger) spec. Comfortable and even enjoy the toil of testing an API and figuring out how things work and interconnect. I'm more of a scripter than a programmer, but I can dig through code and ask pointed questions.

    SEO combined with Copywriting helps a dying business in driving organic sales and traffic almost instantly.. Same is true for a blog/website that's losing its spot on search engines and hence the traffic. I'm a CS grad and a Certified SEO & Copywriting Specialist. I've been working as a Freelance Writer for the past 4 years and I have worked for over 30 clients. These are a few words from my favorite clients: ✅ "She was incredible, I absolutely love working with her, she was very knowledgeable & extremely professional.." ✅ "Hira is very responsive and highly competent. She understands the requirements fully and gives her best. I enjoyed working with her and will surely recommend her services to my friends and acquaintances for future projects." You can read the testimonials on my profile! My content writing responsibilities include generating and developing ideas, performing research, selecting workable ideas, writing fresh plagiarism free content, proofreading, researching relevant keywords, managing user-generated content, and using content management systems. I am always available and ready to make amendments if there's any problem. My services include: - Content for landing pages - Blog Writing - Article Writing - Copywriting - Website Content - Optimizing Copies - SEO Audits and Action plans I am experienced in writing the following types of blogs/articles since it's a very effective way to rank of search engines like Google: ✅Response post: A response post is a response to a question. It answers a specific question quickly and has low competition. These are the very first articles you must write on your website. It consist of 1200 - 1500 words and it's quite specific. It usually gets a ranking on answer snippets. ✅Staple post: Slightly longer than response post. It contains list and in-depth information. It consists of 2500 - 3500 words and a format is followed. ✅Pillar post 3500 words - well-thought and researched post. Contains a minimum of 4 subheading with 300+ words.

    Hello, I have been a Technical Writer and Editor for the past twenty years. I've written for a wide variety of organizations and enjoy many aspects of technical writing, particularly those areas that require strong critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Documentation I have produced ranges from small in-house user guides and policy/procedure manuals to training materials used to roll out national products. I am a stickler for detail but am otherwise pretty easygoing. I appreciate your time and consideration.

How to Hire Top Technical Writers

How to hire technical writers

Product manuals, user guides, and white papers won’t write themselves. If you’re looking for a freelancer who can help you take advanced technical topics and make them sensible to the masses, a technical writer can help.

Whether you have your technical content already written—say, by an engineer at a manufacturing company who isn’t a writer by trade—and all you need is someone to edit it for clarity or a broader audience, or you need a technical piece written from scratch, the key to a successful project is a clear, thorough creative brief.

What goes into a successful project brief? Here are a few things to consider including:

  • Background information. What is your company or business? What products or services do you provide? While technical writers won’t always have to be SMEs to work on a subject, it can be helpful for them to have experience and knowledge pertinent to your business or project.
  • Business goals and scope of the project. Next, clearly outline what it is you’re trying to accomplish with your content. Potential candidates should be able to read this part of the brief and instantly understand how the content they’ll write will help accomplish these goals.
  • A description of the content and channels where the content will be promoted. Is this an industry white paper distributed to a network of peers, or high-level materials for customers who want to educate themselves more on your product or service? Will the technical writer be writing in-depth explainer articles that need some SEO expertise, white papers with footnotes, or more engaging training materials?
  • Specific writing styles, acronyms, or terminology they will be using. If there’s a set style or library of acronyms and terms the writer should be familiar with, mention that as well.
  • Timeline and deliverables.

How to shortlist technical writers

A skilled technical writer isn’t just good at understanding how something works—they must also understand the audience and how to communicate effectively to them. Instead of just documenting a product’s feature, they also ask why and how people would use it. They understand the user’s perspective and the goals the user is trying to achieve.

As you’re browsing available technical writing consultants, it can be helpful to develop a shortlist of the freelancers you may want to interview. You can screen profiles on criteria such as:

  • Industry fit. You want a technical writer who understands your industry, so they can help you translate your technical jargon into something that speaks to your target market.
  • Detail oriented. It takes strong attention to detail to accurately translate advanced technical concepts into the words of a layperson.
  • Feedback. Check reviews from past clients for glowing testimonials or red flags that can tell you what it’s like to work with a particular technical writer.

How to write an effective tehnical writer job post

You can get more qualified proposals and speed up your search by being more specific with your needs. Before posting a job, ask yourself:

  • What level of expertise do I need? Do they need job experience as a business analyst, engineer, or accountant? Do they need academic credentials such as a Ph.D.?
  • What graphics are needed? Technical writers can usually create graphics such as tables, diagrams, and engineering drawings to support what they’re writing about. Good writers are skilled at creating well-designed graphics that integrate with the copy.
  • When do I need the project done? If you have a tight deadline, a more experienced writer may be able to turn a project around faster and with fewer edits needed.
  • How much research is needed? Does the writer need to sit with engineers to watch a piece of equipment being installed, then write instructions about how to do it? Does the writer need to run their draft by a test group to read for accuracy and comprehension?

With a clear picture of your ideal technical writer in mind, it’s time to write that job post. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would with employment, aim to provide enough detail for a contractor to know if they’re the right fit for the project. An effective technical writing job post should include:

  • Scope of work: From blog posts to test procedures, list all the deliverables you’ll need.
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project.
  • Background: If you prefer experience working with certain industries, software, or marketing channels, mention this here.
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

TECHNICAL WRITERS FAQ

What is technical writing?

Technical writing is an umbrella term that covers everything from code documentation to blog posts covering the latest news in tech. If you’ve ever clicked “help” in a software service, perused an informative article covering new technology, or relied on a user manual to use a new product or service, you’ve benefited from the services of a technical writer.

Here’s a quick overview of the skills you should look for in technical writing freelancers:

  • Technical writing and editing
  • Experience writing technical documents (whitepapers, user manuals, etc.)
  • Research
  • Attention to detail
  • Familiarity with your subject matter

From marketing a technical product to educating your customers on how best to use it, technical writing consultants can create the documentation you need to reach your target audience.

Why hire technical writers?

The trick to finding top technical writers is to identify your needs. Are you looking for someone to write fun and informative blog posts about your technical products or services? Or do you require someone with a strong coding background to create the documentation for a library to be used by other developers? The cost of your technical writing project will depend largely on your scope of work, and the specific skills needed to bring your project to life.

How much does it cost to hire a technical writer?
