Technical Writing

You’ve heard the jokes: “Yesterday I cuddent evin spell injuneer / engunear / enjineur and now I are one.” Engineers aren’t supposed to be able to write or spell.

That’s not us! We offer professional technical writing services. Judge for yourself – look at the various white papers on this site.

We’ve written technical articles, news releases, application notes, catalog and web pages and, especially, LOTS of technical user instructions, both short and long. You can see examples of our catalog page and (short) instruction manual writing on my former company’s web site, Navigate to any instrument and click either PDF Data Sheet or PDF Manual. (NOTE: As of Sept. 11, 2022 the JH Technology site seems not to be working.)

Owner Harry Trietley has a published book to his credit, Transducers in Mechanical and Electronic Design, published by Marcel Dekker in 1986. (Update – now apparently owned by CRC press and still available from Amazon and others.) In the past he also has written several technical magazine articles – remember magazines? He’s now focusing on web postings.

We understand technology. We can understand your products and applications or, if not, discuss and learn from you until we do. We’ll then make our “technical writing” as technical or non-technical as suits your intended readers. Who are you trying to reach? Is their expertise in your field or, more often, something else? To use an instrumentation example, you might be needing an instrument instruction manual written for users whose expertise is elsewhere – maybe food processing, power generation, medicine or pollution control. We’ll tailor our writing to your audience.

We’re writers, not entertainers or performers. We offer technical writing services – news and product releases, catalog pages, application notes and articles, instruction manual writing services and the like. If you want a fancy web page or publication full of flashy promotional gimmicks, we’re the wrong company. We can take on a full job or, if you prefer, serve as a technical writing consultant to your own engineering, marketing or other people. Our specialty is making technical information readable, interesting and understandable.

Give us a try. If you need good, professional technical writing but don’t have the in-house time or expertise, we’re here to help. If you’re in or near Sarasota, Florida, we could work together in person.
