They also gather, develop and distribute technical information to designers, manufacturers and customers. Technical Writers often work with computer support specialists, computer hardware engineers and software developers to manage the flow of information among project workgroups during testing and development.

They may also be required to research their subject matter through internet study, personal observations and discussion with technical specialists. Due to this, it is essential that Technical Writers are self-driven and able to manage their time efficiently.
