I would like to move to Israel. What are the job prospects there for technical writers?
Is this field expected to grow? What is the median/average salary for technical writers in Israel? Can they expect to be fully employed or do most work on a consultative basis? Is one required to have excellent command of both English and Hebrew? Thanks so much to all who answer! (Please no hate and/or criticism)

Israel has highly advanced high-tech and software sectors and it ranks near the top in the world by number of patents registered and engineers with science degrees. So I think there should be a fair demand for technical writers. But of course check the appropriate employment opportunities. Good luck!
