    I say, “I make complicated stuff easier to understand (in writing).” The usual response is “We need more of that.” Sometimes they even ask “How?” 🙂

      Leaving out the labels sounds like a good approach! Thanks for your comment Louise and Happy Christmas.

    I say, I create manuals like the ones you get when you buy a smart phone. Earlier, I used to say the manuals you get with your Windows copy, but sadly no one read them 😉

    Hi All.

    Join me to the list. I am new to Technical Writing. It’s just 1 yr I am into this profession. It took nearly 4 months for me to understand my profession. But, it’s quite difficult to make others understand about it. Even, my family has some questions about my job. When someone asks my mom, she says I am into IT…. so they assume I am Software Engineer…. Oops, cant explain anything to anyone.
