Press release from: The Writers Block (TWB)

The Writers Block (TWB) has been featured in the February 2007 edition of India Today’s Aspire magazine, which has the ‘Best Careers of 2007’ as its cover story. India Today Aspire is one of India’s leading publications on education and career. Technical Writing is featured as one of 10 ‘Hot New Career Options’ in an article that showcases a selection of the best courses that have recently been launched by top institutes across the country.

TWB is India’s leading provider of technical documentation outsourcing and training services. TWB addresses the dire need in the software industry for high quality technical writing. In most developed software markets approximately 5% to 7% of the technical workforce is committed to technical documentation, whereas in India the technical documentation workforce is estimated to be only 0.1% of the workforce. This represents a latent need of approximately 100,000 trained personnel in India over the next few years. TWB addresses this requirement both by creating trained manpower and by providing documentation outsourcing services.

India Today Aspire is a monthly supplement of the India Today Group. The February edition takes a look at the hottest career sectors ranging from IT to aviation and from animation to telecom. The magazine is a complete guide to the best careers and new courses that are available in 2007. The magazine gives an in-depth analysis of all the new courses that are available in 2007 across the country including the prices and availability of each course.

TWB’s technical writing course has been featured as one of the top 10 courses that are available in the country. The article is complete with all relevant information including the duration of the course, the qualifications necessary for the course, the price of the course and the starting salary that can be expected on completion of the course.

Ms Helen Shukla, Founder-Director, TWB says, “India has a dire need for high quality technical writing talent required by the Indian software industry. TWB is addressing this need providing a course which addresses the basic requirement of having a good command over the English language and widespread familiarity of computer usage. TWB is a pioneer in high quality training that assures our students with a head-start in this industry. At TWB, we train people in the core areas of technical documentation. Our training courses are one of the best in the country as a result of which over 125 leading MNCs hire people with a TWB Certification. The TWB Certification programs are exhaustive and cover almost all areas of technical writing that would be expected in any firm.”
