Top User Guides & Manuals Freelancing Services

Hire Freelance User Guide and Manual Writers

User guides and manuals are technical documents written with the objective of providing instructions to end users of a particular machine, equipment, or system. The intended audience of these documents is people who do not have professional knowledge of the product. So, the language of the document is simple and instructional, with minimal technical information. User guides are provided along with the product that is sold to the consumer so that the user can set up and use the product by reading the user guide alone. These documents not only provide detailed and specific instructions, but also troubleshooting information for times when the system malfunctions. Most of the issues are intended to be covered through these instructions. If the issue is not listed in the user guide, consumers are provided with specific instructions on how to contact customer support for their purchase. If you intend to hire user guide and manual writers for your product, you can easily hire a freelancer online to help you with your requirements.

What do User Guide and Manual Writers do?

Writers of user guides are English language experts who also possess professional knowledge about the specific product or system. They understand its operations, functionalities, capabilities, features, and the function of each part or element of the product. They also know every possible way in which the system can malfunction, and how to prevent and handle such issues when they arise. With all this knowledge at hand, they write the user guide with attention to comprehension and usability by the consumer. They divide the entire user guide into different headings and subheadings based on the different topics that are covered in the document. Under each section, they mostly list down simple and direct bullet points that can be easily followed by the user. They also use a lot of images, illustrations, and screenshots to make instructions as clear as possible for the end user.

If you are planning to launch a product, it is advisable to hire user guide and manual writers from some of the top freelance marketplaces, like Guru. Before you do so, you need to ensure that your freelancer has:

  • A strong command over English language with proficiency in grammar and vocabulary.
  • Instructional writing skills and can write clear and direct instructions.
  • Capability to incorporate a lot of relevant images in the text that complements the instructions.
  • Several years of experience in writing user guides and manuals for various products.

  • Professional education and training in writing, communication, and journalism
  • Proficiency in using Microsoft Office and image editing tools and software such as PhotoShop
