Types of Tools

Technical writers work with a wide variety of tools and resources for their day-to-day tasks. Tools are required to:

  • Standardize the technical writing processes within an organization.
  • Increase the productivity of tech writers.
  • Plan and track documentation deliverables.
  • Ensure consistency and accessibility in the documentation.
  • Collaborate with team members.

From word processors to multimedia tools to version control systems, technical writers are adept at working with multiple tools to create engaging and user-friendly technical content.

Tech Writer’s Tribe conducted a survey to find out which tools are used by technical documentation team members. 529 participants from 78 cities in 12 countries participated in the survey. The survey had six primary sections and the results were divided into 16 categories. The categories include authoring tools, image/video/illustration tools, API documentation tools, CMS, CCMS, Docs as code process tools, versioning tools, and In-App tools.
