Over my 25+ years of technical writing I've been called (polite ones only):

Technical Writer, Technical Author, Technical Communicator, Information Developer, Information Engineer, Documentation
Enginer, Publications Engineer, Knowledge Products Developer, Training Author, Information Manager, Documentation
Manager, Web Developer, Web Engineer, Customer Engineer, User Support Engineer.

In general, as I am one, I like to get engineer into my title. My business card has "Technical Communicator" on it.



I am a technical writer at a mortgage company. Basically, I document
all types of procedures. In addition, I am a project manager. Right
now my title is "Technical Writer / Project Manager". The director
and VP of our division does not like the title of Technical Writer.
Since this is my first official gig as a tech writer, I don't really
want to give it up. I'm worried that if I leave this company in a
year and they've made my title "Documentation Specialist" other
employers will not recognize what I actually did.

What other titles can be used to replace Technical Writer and grab
future employers attention? How would Documentation Project Manager
