Technical writers: presenting complex matters in a simple way
Technical writers do not have a specific field of expertise. Usually, they work in the area of technical documentation of large industrial companies. The main task of technical writers is to explain the functions of technical devices in an understandable language and thus make them accessible to users.
Which opportunities do technical writers have on the labour market?
Qualified technical writers – be it graduates with academic degrees in relevant study courses such as technical communication or newcomers – are highly in demand in Germany. For newcomers, it is essential to have completed an additional training programme and to possess a formal qualification in technical communication. Engineers and specialists with a technical vocational qualification have particularly good chances in many organisations. Software companies, however, are increasingly searching for newcomers with a non-technical background as well. Learn more about your opportunities!
