Want To start a Technical Writing Career but don't know where to begin?


1 min read

I've Finished Reading the Technical Writing One Pre-class material.

I thank Google for this FREE and Comprehensive material.

The following are the basic lessons I looked at.

  • Use terms consistently.

  • Avoid ambiguous pronouns.

  • Prefer active voice to passive voice.

  • Pick specific verbs over vague ones.

  • Focus each sentence on a single idea.

  • Convert some long sentences to lists.

  • Eliminate unneeded words.

  • Use a numbered list when ordering is important and a bulleted list when ordering is irrelevant.

  • Keep list items parallel.

  • Start numbered list items with imperative words.

  • Introduce lists and tables appropriately.

  • Create great opening sentences that establish a paragraph's central point.

  • Focus each paragraph on a single topic.

  • Determine what your audience needs to learn.

  • Fit documentation to your audience.

  • Establish your document's key points at the start of the document.

Before you go.
