Technical Writing Academy

Technical Writing is the art of combining writing and technology. Technical writers are professionals capable of understanding and translating technical concepts into useful information for any audience. At Wizeline, our Technical Writing team works with Engineering, Design, and Product Management teams to develop high-quality documentation based on business and technical goals.

During this course, you will learn about:

  • The day-to-day job, tasks, responsibilities, and challenges of a technical writer.
  • The technical writing process to create various types of documents.
  • The relevant technologies and tools a technical writer must know to be successful in the field.
