Seeking technical copywriters?

I'm a skilled technical copywriter based in Gloucestershire. I work where marketing meets technology – crafting the words that you or your client don't have the time, specialist writing skills or inclination to write. I turn 'dry-but-accurate' technical data into persuasive copy for websites, brochures or data sheets, and help you get it out in the market to work for you. We should talk, because I can make your technical information work harder as a marketing tool...

More on hiring a technical copywriter

Did you Google ‘technical copywriters Gloucestershire‘ or ‘copywriters freelance technical’ because you need to convert technical information into persuasive, benefit-laden content? If I could show you how my technical copywriting will help your organisation, you'd want me to do writing and editing such as this for you, wouldn't you?

Running a business is demanding (I know, I do it too). Are you struggling to find time for DIY technology copywriting? Or perhaps, like many business people, you recognise that copywriting just isn't your thing? That’s where self-employed technical copywriters like me can help. And why we really should have a chat.


Get technical copywriting off your to-do list

Machines don’t build themselves and software doesn’t self-code. And your technical or engineering copy won’t write itself. Whatever your reason for seeking technical copywriters in Gloucestershire, I can probably help.

As a trained technical writer, PR writer and copywriter, I make it easy to get copywriting off your to-do list and working in print or online. Because I combine this with a marketing background, I offer something that many technical writers and online technical copywriters can’t – I bridge the gap between marketing and technology as I convert your technical data into engaging words.

Even if you could do your own technical copywriting, I'm sure you appreciate that hiring an independent copywriter makes sound sense. Imagine how helpful it would be if I got on with the writing while you concentrate on what you do best for your engineering business or technology company. Alltimes Coatings did...

The benefits of hiring-in technical writing services

Obviously, if you’ve hired freelance technical copywriters before, you’ll know the attraction of buying writing on a power-by-the-hour basis. If you haven’t, the benefits include these:

  • Get technical copywriting off your to-do list.
  • Get writing done faster (I do it day in, day out).
  • Create clear technical copy when you need it.
  • Write engaging technical SEO copy for your website.
  • Avoid overhead when there's no copywriting to do.
  • Enjoy great service from a Gloucestershire technical copywriter.
  • Improve communications with a skilled technical editor.
  • Budget accurately with competitive fixed-price quotes.
  • Free your time for the 'technical stuff‘ you do best.

The experience your technical copywriting project deserves

Whether you need engineering copy for brochures or technical copywriting for search engine optimisation, I draw on valuable experience in technical sales, marketing, technical writing, copywriting and PR in areas such as these:

  • Flooring
  • Security and security installation
  • Business telephone systems
  • PCB antennas
  • Thermal spray coating

  • Building products and construction materials
  • Power supply management

Adding value to your technical copy

Before going freelance, I spent years at the interface between marketing and technical writing with the Piper Group (now part of BAE Systems). I wrote for Rolls-Royce, Hyder plc, Welsh Water and United Utilities, Hydro International, Airbus UK and others. The common denominator was making technical subjects readable and engaging. After that I worked for a Gloucestershire technical PR consultancy, writing about building products and doing construction copywriting.
