http://www.stc.org/about/press03.asp?ID=1 lists eight titles.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technical_writer lists seven.

http://www.stc.org/membership/interestedTC01.asp lists twelve.

http://online.onetcenter.org/link/summary/27-3042.00 lists six.

http://www.calmis.cahwnet.gov/file/occguide/TECHWRTR.HTM lists thirteen.

Obviously, there's plenty of overlap in those lists.

By the way, what industry do you work in? Different industries often
give different job titles for positions with the same responsibilities.

Quality Assurance Manager*

*No, it doesn't appear in any of those lists.
