Thanks for the attention guys, but it's really not as glamorous as you

A documentalist is a company librarian. The job involves managing documents
for an organization. The job also involves some aspects of technical writing
(templates for example), as well as managing the terminology bank.

Ideally we'd all like to document the key parts of a developer's brain...but
transhumanism hasn't brought us that far, yet ;)
