It sounds like what you are doing is more or less what a lot of tech
writers do. Why don't you check with your management and ask if you can
use your current experience as "technical writing" on your resume. If
it's okay with them, and they'll support that if contacted for a
reference, then you're home free.
Your background and experience are just what a lot of employers are
looking for. If they need to see "tech writing" experience on your
resume, then give it to them. An honest description of your job duties
will back up that designation.
