Technical Writing

Technical Writing

My background as a telecommunications/electronics engineer enables me to quickly assimilate information about the product that I need to document. I have produced a wide range of technical documents for many sectors including telecom’s, electronic security, vehicle detection and management, lift sensors, intelligent buildings and audio engineering, as well as several software applications.

I generally produce print ready documents and downloadable pdf’s using Adobe InDesign, MS word or MS PowerPoint, depending on customer requirements. The documents that I have produced include:

  • Installer’s manuals
  • Operator’s manuals
  • Product catalogues
  • Product data sheets
  • Product sales sheets
  • Training material (slides and handouts)
  • Requirement specifications
  • Sales brochures

Document Standards

I can produce documents to customers’ document template designs, produce document templates that meet customers’ branding rules, or design document layouts from scratch, where no branding rules/layout styles exist.

I generally accompany my text with my own illustrations and images as required, but I am happy to use existing material as long as it’s presentable and appropriately supports the message.
