I am looking for help with writing a small technical book that describes a programming language. This is a new programming language built by my company. I am writing 75% of the documentation myself but need someone with technical writing experience to help me: 1. Connect with the reader - tell me where things begin to get too complicated for the reader and offer alternative ways of writing it. 2. Help with grammar, spelling, etc. Basic stuff. 3. Ghost write - actually add some material to the documentation to make it easier to read and understand. I'm looking for someone who can provide me a portfolio of their previous technical writing skills. I have around 100 pages.. keep in mind I will write at least 75% of the material myself but that will need editing.
