Introduction

Technical communication is an everyday activity for technological companies and an important part for every manufacturer.
Technical writing as a professional practice requires both - excellent product knowledge and good command of technical language. In addition to that, knowledge of legislation, work safety and physics are necessary for any technical writer.
Today technical writing without sophisticated software tools is unthinkable, as those tools provide capabilities of content reuse, publishing capabilities and automated design formatting.
This is how we work - we employ all the above to achieve customer satisfaction!
