Technical Editing

Technical Writing

Technical Editors edit writing that is instructional in nature, primarily technical writing and technical documentation.

Technical documentation may include user guides, training guides, standard operating procedure manuals, start up guides, software installation documents, troubleshooting guides, test reports, how-to articles, white papers, research reports, proposal packages, and funding applications.

Technical Editors continuously balance conciseness with thoroughness. A Technical Editor’s primary goal is to ensure documents are clear, detailed, and above all, concise. Never use two words when one will do. Technical documents should never be wordy, but they must be properly detailed. Technical documents should be rich in meaningful content; each word should have a purpose.

Technical Editors also review highly technical documentation to ensure compliance with strict technical writing conventions and style guides. The style guide used is dependent on the document’s origination and intended audience. Style guides may be developed “in house” and specific to an institution or company; if one is not in place, a general style guide that is accepted by the overall technical communication field may be used.

Technical editors also analyze document styles to preserve formatting and guarantee alignment with base templates. This includes behind-the-scenes formatting such as page numbers, heading styles, table margins, figure references, and general page layout.

Technical Editors work closely with Technical Writers, Engineers, Analysts, and Graphic Designers. Technical Editors may be involved throughout the document development cycle, or only in the final stages as the first drafts are written.

Technical Editors are comfortable working within tight deadlines. Experienced Technical Editors are able to remain focused while performing repetitive work on an extended schedule; they are able to remain vigilant when searching for written inconsistencies.
