Technical communication is a broad field and includes any form of communication that exhibits one or more of the following characteristics (STC, 2018):

  • Communicating about technical or specialised topics (e.g. communicating how to use or follow software applications, medical procedures, or environmental regulations)
  • Communicating using technology (e.g. communication in websites, help files, and social media)
  • Communicating how to do something (e.g. communication in instruction manuals, online help documentation, and online/e-learning courses).
