Online technical writing courses

Technical communication is a career with a bright future: demand worldwide is high, options are many, and the pay is good. Technical documentation is needed for every new piece of software and practical consumer product.

A basic qualification in technical writing can convert a graduate into a work-ready employee.

Almost every course in the Contented catalogue provides essential skills. The technical writer needs to write exceptionally clearly, consistently, predictably, simply and accessibly. This is true whether you're writing software manuals, product documentation, help files or work procedures. Make Contented courses your starting point.

Writing Translatable English is particularly useful, because so much technical documentation is destined for translation into other languages. Clear, reliable, accurate documentation starts with an English version that is tailor-made for translation. Localisation begins with English content that can be translated accurately. These are specialised skills!
