Communicating complex information in plain English

As government, engineering, medical, educational, digital media, and other tech industries realize the importance of clear communication for their customers, skilled technical writers and communicators are becoming hot commodities. They take complex information and break it down into easy-to-understand pieces for user manuals, policy and procedure guides, online help, technical references, training materials and more.
