Some technical writers are not expected to understand the technical subject very well. They are expected to just clearly translate what the SME says under tight deadlines with little accountability.

Tony Markatos responds:

It has been my experience (Tech Writer, QA Analyst, and Systems Analyst, Development Project Leader) that, except for simple products, it is impossible to "clearly translate what the SME says" without a in-depth understanding of the of the product.
