With rapidly evolving technology, the need for writers who can develop technical documentation is at an all time high. The technical documents offer simplified instructions on complex programs to users. 
Technical writing is a field yet to be explored for the opportunities its offers. If you have good command over English and have sound technical knowledge, then technical writing offers a lucrative job opportunity for you. You will be delighted to know that technical writing offers a salary package as good as the one offered to software development or testing professionals. 
As a technical writer, you have to write the complete structure of the technical aspects of a program. This document is then forwarded to technical and editorial team for review. If approved, the document is published in desired format. 
These days technical writing courses are offered by many institutes to brush up your skills. Enroll in one of these programs to gain full knowledge of technical writing.
