How to Hire Technical & Scientific Writers
Before hiring technical and scientific writers, be clear on relevant skill sets, experience levels and hiring budgets. Next, give a short, time bound project to all potential candidates to assess if they possess the skills that you’re looking for. Perusing their profiles and background will also help you understand if they have the niche experience you need.
What Do Technical and Scientific Writers Do?
Technical & Scientific writers are responsible for communicating various technical concepts pertinent to an organization and its functioning, including its various internal and external stakeholders.
They rephrase, write and edit various tech based subject matter into easily digestible chunks of information. Technical writing also involves instruction manuals, product policies, product descriptions, memos, training guides, reports, user manuals, journal articles, tutorials, quick reference guides, technical material, software documentation, and white papers.
The aim of technical writing, and related sub-categories like science writing and science copywriting, is to translate complex technical and scientific functions into comprehensible language for non-technical audiences. Given that technology advancements are taking place rapidly in every industry, the demand for technical writers is also increasing.
Qualifications for Technical & Scientific Freelance Writers
On a broad level, the qualifications of freelance technical & scientific writers are industry specific. Technical writers, science copywriters and scientific content writers need to communicate information that is engaging and understood by users, and they therefore fundamentally need to be able to understand and learn multiple complex concepts. They must also have a flair to write in a simple and concise manner, enabling the reader to easily absorb the technical information. This is particularly important for freelance scientific writers who offer article writing and science copywriting services.
Technical qualifications will also differ from one organization to another, as no two organizations have the operations, requirements and target audience. For instance, one organization might need a technical writer who has a bachelor’s or master’s in computer science, programming, or software engineering, whilst another might not look at education but instead need a scientific writing consultant who has relevant experience in science copywriting and deep scientific content writing.
Benefits of Hiring Technical & Scientific Writers
Due to their subject matter expertise, technical writers offer a diverse range of services such as freelance scientific writing, scientific article writing and scientific consulting. They typically work with various stakeholders to understand the nuances of technology, and then apply their writing skills to produce technical documents. Such stakeholders in an organization could consist of people involved in developing products or services such as graphic designers, content writers, document specialists, web-developers, programmers, coders, app-developers or industry experts.
The consumer of a technical-scientific document can be found within your organization, for example an employee who reads the instruction manual or SOP to use an inventory management system to execute his/her daily tasks. The consumer can be found outside your organization as well, for example when a customer reads the technical document to use an app or an electronic device.
Thus, technical writers enable consumers to make use of an organizations’ product or service, ensuring you reach your audience effectively.
Finding the Right Technical & Scientific Writer for Hire
Since technical and scientific writers create industry-specific content, several factors such as scale of operations, project specifications and project duration have to be considered before an organization picks the right kind of technical writer or scientific consultant.
For smaller firms in particular, on-demand hiring is more effective, enabling them to consult experts such as scientific copywriters or scientific writer consultants on flexible schedules. This is a cost-effective option, and helps you test ideas and develop prototypes without having to spend a huge amount of money.
Freelance technical and scientific writers are also time-effective, as they are available without having to sign minimum-duration contracts, and can work around your schedule as and when the need arises.
How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Technical & Scientific Freelancer?
Depending on qualification of Bachelor’s and Master’s degree, experience, and location, the fee charged by technical writers will vary. Typically, they charge anywhere from 15 USD to 125 USD per hour, although the median cost is usually 30-60 USD per hour.
The cost range varies from 35 USD and goes all the way up to 200 USD per hour for experienced writers in the UK, while in the USA, technical writers can start charging from 24 USD and can go up to 100 USD per hour.
Things to Remember While Hiring Technical & Scientific Writers
Pay careful attention to your niche project requirements, scale of the project, duration and budgets before hiring. For short term projects and small firms, a technical writer with a Bachelor’s degree and with low to medium experience in relevant industry would be reasonable. For long term or highly specialized projects, you might want to hire a scientific writer or a consultant with a relevant PhD.
Further, the relevant technical skill set they have is also essential. Say you are a website development firm then you would need to hire technical writers or scientific article writers who have knowledge and skill of Hadoop, java script, UI Linux etc.
How to Write an Effective Job Post to Hire Scientific Freelance Writers
Making sure that you have a clear project brief is of utmost importance. Here are some significant elements of the project brief that you must mention:
Objective of the project must be explained in depth for potential candidates to understand the kind of content creation that is expected from them.
Organization information must be given in order for freelance technical writers, science writers and scientific copywriters, in order to assess if they have any relevant experience in that sector or if they can create content for the product/ service that you provide.
Channels of promotion must be outlined in the project brief to prepare the technical writer so they can create content tailored to a specific type of audience.
Special specifications, such as font style, layout, terminologies, abbreviations, style of citations etc., that a technical or science writer must follow while creating content is vital to check for meticulous and elegant writing skills.
Timeline, budget, and deliverables, should be mentioned to get proposals from relevant technical and scientific writers. Time of review, feedback, and revisions must be outlined. Budget, stage, and method of payment for the job completion ensures trust and transparency. The stages of delivery in milestones, in bulk or in chunks gives clarity and realistic expectations on the delivery of the project.
