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.
I once worked for a senior manager that told me that Technical Writers
write. The engineers would supply all the images I would need and all I
needed to worry about was putting them in the manuals. Of course, there were
no templates for the manuals and the engineers couldn't figure out how to
take images that were in focus. This same manager disappeared from the
company roster one day and I was given full reign to revamp the company
documentation. Life got a lot better and (patting myself on the back), the
manuals improved to a point where customers were actually using them again.
How do I know they were using them? They were emailing me corrections.
