Recently Asked Questions & Answers:

  1. How should the first or rough draft of a technical document be written?
  2. Before starting the first or rough draft, ask yourself the following questions:

    • Who is going to read the technical document?
    • What is the technical writer trying to tell them?
    • Where did the issues happen that were raised in the document?
    • Why did the issues occur?
    • How does the document address these issues?

    Use all the information you gathered and write down all these ideas, concepts and concerns without worrying about the style, grammar, punctuation, organization or anything else. Then proofread, correct, change, add or subtract them from the first draft until it answers the above questions.

  3. Should the pictures be incorporated in the first draft of the technical document?
  4. Pictures that address the questions listed above should be included in the first draft.

  5. How should a technical writer negotiate if disagreements arise between reviewers/approvers?
  6. You should first validate the concerns of the reviewers and show the information from the document or source information that supports the document’s point of view.

    It is your responsibility to negotiate, to cajole, to coax or do whatever is necessary to obtain consensus between reviewers including soliciting input from upper management.

Topic Background:

This webinar will define the complete technical document creation process. It includes all steps to be made by experienced Technical Writers to create the highest quality Technical Documents.

It also reminds experienced attendees that Technical Writing always includes reviewers and approvers of different levels of expertise in the subject matter.
