A technical communicator creates communication that is clear, concise,
comprehensive, accurate, correct, accessible, accurate, and
professional, using a variety of methods, tools, and technologies, that
can include writing, illustration, photography, video, and sound, for a
variety of static and dynamic deliverables, including print media and
online media.

What about that?

Cheers,

Sean

commonly understood definition of what a technical writer is.
