Technical writing is a term that defines written form of technical communication used in a variety of technical fields — computer software and hardware, chemistry, aeronautics, engineering, robotics, finance, etc. Some people define it as “writing complex things in a simple form”.

You may consider yourself a natural born techwriter if you are particularly talented when it comes to breaking down complex processes into easy-to-understand articles. (How Do I Become a Technical Writer?)

Lots of companies, from construction to food processing and preservation, are looking for full-time content creators that can develop user guides and knowledge bases on different subjects. So techwriters are in demand almost everywhere. (Technical Writer Job Scope: What Technical Writers Really Do)
