10/05/2018 25208188 Developers often have a very narrow field of vision. A generalist like a tech writer can help bring consistency and quality across a wider field.
10/05/2018 25182230 We have a developer revising and rewriting some content, and she is starting to write some new content, in Word. I am responsible for further revising the content to fit our specifications and transferring this content into our tools. I am certainly adding value, but the task is tedious. I am not a tools person. I am an end-user of our tools. They are complex and hard to use, so it requires some skill, but I don't have the interest or the expertise to be a tools specialist.
