Tech Writing for People Who Don't Get IT
   United States
  |  8:10 am Local Time

Overview

Technology is vital. It can also be confusing. I'm a different kind of tech writer: one who explains technology to the people who use it but don't always understand it.

Whether you're a one-person web development agency, a small software business, a large media company, or a purveyor of cloud computing, your clients need to understand what you do. More importantly, they need to understand how it will benefit them.

No matter if it's a simple user guide, a series of blog posts, a newsletter filled with the latest developments, or clear...

Service Description

Spending the last five years in the freelance writing game has enabled me to hone my craft. I've gotten the chance to work with clients from one end of the globe to the other (literally), and to write about topics as diverse as kid-friendly cooking to the science of energy-efficient windows. One thing that all of these projects have had in common: the need to communicate clearly.

No topic needs clear communication more than technology, and yet understandable tech writing is hard to find. I'm excited to blend my years of experience in writing and research with my interest in all things tech-related. My goal is to make today's ever-changing technology understandable for everyone.

What can I do for you?

* Build customer confidence in your business or product by clean, well-written, and professional content

* Provide a fresh voice for your brand, and fresh eyes for your documentation and help materials

* Help you polish your own thoughts to create engaging copy

* Communicate your ideas clearly and simply

* Correct grammatical and structural errors in existing materials
