Technical writer? Content designer? What sort of writer do you really need?
Confused about whether you need a technical writer or a content designer? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! There’s a lot of confusion about job titles and they can vary between organisations and industries. In some, I’d be classed as a technical writer, in others, a content designer. I think the confusion comes from the word “technical” and also the need for developer content.
My take is:
- “Traditional” technical writer – Produces content for a range of users. The content is user-centred and helps users to achieve their goals, often, but not exclusively, with technology-related products and services.
- Content designer – Produces digital content for a range of users. The content is user-centred and helps users to achieve their goals. This is often, but not exclusively, with online services, such as government services, and charities.
- API technical writer – Produces highly technical content aimed at developers. The term “technical writer” is often used to describe these writers.
I’m a “traditional” technical writer and I’ve trained in content design too, so if you need end-user content, I’m a good fit. Check out my services to find out more.
