Top Technical Writer related questions

What is technical writing?

Technical writing is the practice of documenting processes and communicating information. This writing discipline is common in tech-related businesses. What’s more, engineers and scientists often do technical writing to share their knowledge. Technical content includes instructional material, user manuals, and software installation guides. Annual reports, Standard Operating Procedures (SOP), Service Level Agreements (SLA), and legal disclaimers also fall under technical writing.

How do technical writers price their services?

Freelance technical writers charge per word, per hour, day, or project. A per hour rate is ideal for short writing jobs. But a per-project rate is best for longer jobs. With a fixed project rate, you won’t have to worry about surprise costs. Instead, you pay your technical writer the agreed amount once they finish the task. Do keep in mind that technical writing rates vary depending on the scope of work and your writer’s experience level. 

What’s the turnaround time for technical content writing?

Turnaround time for technical writing can be less than a week or up to several weeks. Naturally, more complex writing tasks will take much more time. For example, a 60-page user guide may take 20 to 30 days to write. The availability and working pace of your writer will also determine the turnaround time. Please let us know in your task how soon you need your technical content. We’ll connect you with technical writers who can work within your timeframe. 

Up to how many revisions can my technical writer do?

Your technical writer can revise your material as many times as necessary. Before your writer starts the work, please align expectations with them regarding revision rounds. Your technical writer may do unlimited revisions or limit edits to 2-3 rounds of revisions. Rest assured, you can pay your Tasker only once you’re satisfied with their output. 

What skills should I look for in a technical writer?

A college degree is a typical qualification to look for when you’re hiring a technical writer. Technical writers may have a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism, English, or Communications. Or they may specialise in a particular field like Computer Science, Engineering, or Web Design. When viewing your offers on our platform, please check Tasker profiles, ratings, and reviews. This information should give you a sense of a candidate’s work experience and professionalism.

What do technical writing services include?

Technical content writing services cater to several industries, from consumer electronics to healthcare. Technical writers can create content, such as user manuals, tutorials, how-to guides, and white papers. Our platform connects you with technical writers for your specific project needs. You can hire a technical writer for the following tasks. 

Technical report writing 

Technical report writing services create documents that explain processes and research results. Technical reports are standard in business and scientific contexts. A technical writer may craft technical reports for stakeholder meetings or business pitches. Airtasker technical writers can also help with various report writing tasks. For example, they may write a conclusion for your report or summarise your survey and interview findings.  

Technical manual writing 

Technical manual writing services work on user manuals, assistance guides, and other forms of instructional material. A technical manual discusses the components and functions of a product. Furthermore, a technical manual provides answers to typical user queries. Well-written technical manuals improve end-user experience and instruct consumers on how to use products.  

Assembly manual writing

Assembly manual writers create assembly, re-assembly, and repair guides. Assembly manual writing also involves researching better and more efficient processes. Essentially, a technician with writing skills is an ideal candidate for assembly manual writing. Most companies prefer to hire technical writers with practical experience in a specific type of machinery. But you may also consider generalist writers who are willing to consult industry experts and learn the processes.  

Medical and scientific paper writing

Writing medical and scientific papers is a tedious and challenging task. What’s more, researchers are often too busy to write and publish their research. If you’re a researcher, scientist, or medical expert, a technical writer can help interpret and organise your findings. Technical writers can also translate your results into engaging content for medical journals and newsletters. 

Editing and proofreading 

If you already have a technical report on hand, a technical writer can help polish your work. Editing and proofreading services ensure the quality of your technical content. Whether it’s a 2000-word report or a case appeal report, a technical writer can edit grammar errors and proofread your writing. Your Tasker can also make sure to apply technical writing language to your report, user guide, or proposal.  

Technical proposal writing

A well-written technical proposal can get you or your company hired for a project. Technical proposals present ideas and how they can add value to the recipient. Proposal writing and technical writing are distinct skills, each with different approaches. But we can save you the time and trouble of finding capable proposal writers. Simply put up a task to connect with proposal writers on our platform.

Help install our dryer to the outside dryer vent

$50

Hillcrest, Auckland, New Zealand

13th Jun 2021

We have a Westinghouse dryer that we need to have the ventilation hose properly connected to the outside vent. The issue is that the wall vent has a 25mm adapter (on a 10mm pipe, i think) )and the dryer is a 10mm hole. I assume the easiest way is to saw off the adapter and connect a 10 mm hose between the wall and dryer. This is where it gets tricky as recess the dryer sits in isn't massively deep and the dryer needs to be almost flush with the wall to allow a back door to open.
