Your role could be summarised as "user interface quality assurance". As a tech writer, you probably have more of an overview of all the screens, dialogues etc comprising the GUI than the developers do. As such, you therefore have the best feel for:

*how the "style" (layout, positioning of common elements, use of standard UI components) of each screen (etc) relates to other screens
*spelling and terminology inconsistencies
* software behaviour

...than anyone else.
