What Subjects have I written documentation about?
I am fortunate to have a broad education, having studied
Applied Physics, Electronics and Control Engineering at four universities to Masters level.
I have had wide scientific interests over the years, and
have worked in
many different branches of industry. This means that I am
competent as a Technical Writer in almost any subject area.
Another useful skill is that I have always been able to explain things clearly to
people who don't know.
This background helps me to understand my clients' products or
services. Then I can explain it clearly to a new user, so that they can
quickly and easily.
That is the key issue.
Here are a few examples of past Subject Areas:
Electronics test equipment design and use
Industrial handling equipment
Cardiac drug response simulation systems
In-vitro blood testing equipment
High-tech astronomical telescopes
Fast-food chain Shop Fitting instruction
Health and safety instructions, edited
for the European Southern Observatory ESO

X-Ray scanning equipment, security and
