This post will analyze the difference between nontechnical and technical writing, provide strategies to overcome common challenges faced by technical writers, and offer resources on technical writing.

 

The most obvious difference between technical and non-technical writing is the complexity of the information being conveyed. Any writer can choose to write on a technical level; however, when they do so, they are opening themselves up to scrutiny by individuals who have a more in-depth knowledge of the subject matter than the average reader.

 

Technical writing is written at a higher level of abstraction than non-technical writing. To ensure technical documents are presented as such, and to preserve the unique format requirements of these types of documents, it is necessary for professional technical writers to have their own process for creating documentation. This includes an understanding of the methods required to provide the highest level of clarity, brevity and consistency that is typical of technical writing. In this article I will give you examples on how to improve your non-technical writing skills.
