TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
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
