Writing and Editing





Services performed by Warthman Associates


Contract Writing Services


Writing, Editing, and Illustrating

Our services consist of original writing and/or editing. Your engineering specifications, patents, rough drafts, and prior versions of documents provide the basis for our work. Interviews, question-answer emails, and our own personal knowledge provide the remainder.

Illustrations are an integral part of our writing. We create illustrations that visualize the functions of your products.


Our technical documents have these features:

  • Accuracy and completeness.
  • Consistent organization.
  • Organization for fast, random access.
  • Consistent use of names.
  • Readability for people who have learned English as a second language.
  • Compliance with industry, copyright, and trademark standards.
  • Protection of confidential information.


Well-written technical documents benefit your company in several ways:

  • Reduce your cost of supporting customers and training new engineers, due to fewer one-on-one support needs.
  • Foster customer loyalty.
  • Increase the reliability of your product development and maintenance, because your engineering team has a clear and complete description of your product.

When technical documents are written by a contract writer, such as us, your documentation costs are lower because contract writers work only when needed. When we finish a project, we are no longer part of your budget, and we are never part of your on-going benefits overhead.
