Tech Writers: Simplifying Complex Topics (Explained)

3 ring binders filled with documents stacked against each other

Have you ever needed the help of a translator or a translator app when communicating in a foreign language? In the world of technical writing and documentation, tech writers are like translators, converting extremely complicated ideas into material that is more easily understood.

When it comes to policy, manuals, and other documentation done by tech writers, oftentimes this material was distilled from less accessible and comprehensible information. Adapting key information into a more direct format is a benefit for companies, their employees, and their customers.

Our team of technical and documentation writers are sharp communicators, well-equipped to translate complex material into precise and efficient documentation.

Tech Writers: The Best Option

Is it better for your developers, software engineers, or other employees to develop product and technical documentation, or is it better to hire tech writers to do your technical writing?

For a plethora of reasons, the wisest option is to hire tech writers at Essential Data.

We Do Our Job So That You Can Do Yours

The primary duty of technical and documentation writers is to present complex ideas and concepts in ways everyone can understand. Professional writers create readable copy faster and more cost-effectively than product developers, engineers, or managers.

Hiring a technical writer not only saves time and reduces cost, but it also frees you and key critical design team members to do the task they were hired for: product development.

For example, this case study details a project in which Essential Data’s technical writers were able to develop detailed Standard Operating Procedures for seven unique manufacturing machines at an aerospace manufacturing company.

“These Standard Operating procedures were then developed into a training manual for new hires and give our clients the ability to cross-train existing employees to work on different machines than the ones to which they are customarily assigned.”


Due to this groundbreaking documentation, the manufacturing company was able to train their new hires 50% more quickly, reducing the training period to three months.

This is just one example of how our skilled technical writers can translate information in order to increase efficiency. To see how Essential Data has helped companies like yours, check out our case studies.

Whether you need a team of consultants to produce a complete line of documentation or a single technical writer for a brief project, Essential Data’s Engagement Manager will lead the project from start to finish. At Essential Data all our work is guaranteed, contact us today to get started.  (800) 221-0093 or
