If this is off topic, forgive me. I'm new at this. I was hired at this
company as a paralegal and ended up doing the technical writing for our
software product. As I had no programming experience, the programmers many
times write the "help" for SOME of their executables and enhancements. When
they do the writing, I do change it, enhance it, tweak it, etc. Many times
(more often than not) I do the writing and have the programmer review it.
My question is this: What am I if I am not doing all of the "writing". Am
I considered a true "technical writer". Would be interested in your
thoughts. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has been put in this position.
Thanks much.
