We believe that you must consider three elements in writing any technical documentation:

  1. Reader
  2. Purpose
  3. Context

The reader of technical documentation seeks information for a specific purpose, and the writer’s purpose is to design documentation that will serve the reader’s needs and help the reader understand and use the information efficiently. The context consists of both reader and purpose, as well as such factors as the organization’s size, budget, deadlines, policies, competition, and priorities.

Is the technical writer developing a technical document for donors or researchers, board members or plant supervisors? Based on the reader, the technical writer will craft the message differently. Bravo LT technical writers consider these three elements when writing technical documentation so that your organization can use and understand the information efficiently.
