What do a heavy duty crane and a precision scale for weighing medication have in common? Quite simply, the technical documentation is created by the technical writers at 2W. As a full service provider for technical communication, we have been explaining specialised, complex matters clearly and comprehensibly since 1998. Our technical writers have practical experience and are well acquainted with the myriad processes and needs of our customers. They combine a clear methodology with established didactic knowledge. The result: Technical documentation that leaves no question unanswered. Always true to our motto: Theoretical. Practical. Technical.
