Hire Freelance Technical Writers

Technical writing involves writing about a particular subject in either a directional, instructional or explanatory tone. The purpose of this style of technical writing is very different from creative or academic writing. The main aim of these technical writers is to provide technical information or instructions about a particular subject. Some examples of this type of technical writing includes instruction manuals, policy documents, user manuals, reports and process manuals.

What Do Freelance Technical Writers Do?

Technical writers usually fill the roles of both writers and researchers, as they perform extensive research about the document and its contents, and then write it in a formal and impersonal language. They usually begin by understanding their audience which helps them decide the extent to which they need to explain technical details, abbreviations, and acronyms. They gather sufficient technical information to be included in the document and make a rough draft with the section and sub-section headings and the points that need to be covered in each of these. After ensuring that the draft has all the details that need to be addressed, they then start working on the final technical document, making sure that the writing is impersonal, straightforward, thorough and instructional.

If you are looking for freelance technical writers for hire, you can connect with a remote technical writer on any of the best websites to find freelance work. However, you should ensure that your freelancer:

  • Is familiar with the style, tone, language, format and content of technical documents.

  • Possesses subject matter expertise or is capable of performing extensive research in order to draft your technical document.

  • Can write in an instructional format if your technical document has instructional or educational content.

  • Has an extensive portfolio of technical documents written in different styles and for various purposes.

Qualifications of Freelance Technical Writers

It is ideal for your freelancer to have the following skills:

  • An educational background in either writing with a degree in English, journalism or communications, or a degree in a technical specialty

  • Proficiency in online publishing software and productivity suites

  • Ability to perform extensive offline and online research for drafting the content of the document
