DWC - L001 - Technical Writing

The main purpose of technical writing is to provide complex information to readers in a way that they can understand and apply, even if they do not have prior knowledge of the topic. Technical writing explains how a particular object works or how to complete a task or project. The audience of a technical report—or any piece of writing for that matter—is the intended or potential reader or readers. For most technical writers, this is the most important consideration in planning, writing, and reviewing a document.
