Hi, I’m Karen Rempel, a Vancouver-based documentation specialist and technical writer. This is my website for showcasing my technical writing experience and helping you get to know me a little. If you have come to this site to learn about the technical writing, business analysis, and information development skills I can bring to your company, I think you will also discover that I am a well-rounded individual who enjoys working with others and will fit in well with your team.
I love learning to use new products and getting to know new people. I work as an independent contractor and consultant technical writer because I like the variety of work. I am up-to-date with the technical writing tools of my profession and learn about my clients’ products and processes very quickly. I have a meticulous eye for detail, the skill to explain concepts and processes in simple terms, and the ability to help people see how the parts fit into the whole. I always get the job done on time, while producing top-quality documentation.
Technical writers bridge people and technology
I am a senior professional technical writer with 19 years of experience in the computer software industry, well established as an incorporated consultant. The simplest way to describe the many things I do as a technical writer is that I bridge people and technology to help you do business. I help people use technology, including the Internet and social media such as LinkedIn, to serve their needs and meet their business goals in the simplest, most effective way possible. I was the 2008-2009 president of the Canada West Coast chapter of my professional organization, the Society for Technical Communication. I also teach a workshop called Yoga for the Office, in which I teach people how to be close to their technology and take care of their bodies at the same time!
The Portfolio page shows some technical writing samples. I also invite you to visit my consultant listing in the STC directory. See the Testimonials page or my profile on LinkedIn for recommendations of my work.
Technical writing is one of my passions, and I enjoy the challenges that each new contract brings. Don’t hesitate to contact me, whether your technical writing project is big or small. I am willing to relocate from Vancouver to other parts of Canada for projects of one to six months. I also often work for US companies, via telecommuting.
If you need a technical writer, and you’d like to discuss how I can create great documentation for your next project, please call me at 604.251.6337 or send an email to kyrempel [at] shaw [dot] ca.
I have been an incorporated consultant since 2003. Thank you for visiting! I look forward to speaking with you soon.
