I don't really know about the different in salaries between a technical
editor and a technical writer, but I do know that there can be a big
difference in salaries just within tech writing positions. Some companies
realize what the job market is like and pay well, and other companies don't
really realize what it takes to attract a decent writer.

I would check out for their salary information. It was
the best one I've found so far and that's pretty much what I've been using.
Also, the salary info is free, unlike many other sites I found.

If you're looking for your first technical writing job and finding one gets
difficult, you might want to consider taking a slightly lower paying one
just to get your foot in the door. Then from there, you can move on.

There are a lot of jobs here, so be patient, persistent, and professional!

I recently completed a certificate in technical writing and am looking for a

job either as a tech writer or technical editor. I have no idea of starting

salaries in the SF-Bay area for entry level tech writers or tech editors and

would like to get some insight into this. Also need to find out about the
availabilty of jobs in tech editing versus tech writing. From the job boards

it seems like there are more listings for writers, than editors. Is there a
big difference in salaries between the two? Would appreciate any info.
