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)

I work for a software firm in Israel. We have many technical writers. Most of them are native English speakers, and excellent Hebrew skills is not mandatory. I don't know anything about their salary, though.

There seems to be plenty of work for TWs, but the market could always take a downturn. The key to 'success' in Israel is to keep an open mind as to what work one is prepared to do.

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!
