Bridging the Gap between Technical Communication and Translation

The overarching aim of the joint workshop by TecCOMFrame, tekom Europe, IMT and LindWeb is to foster the mutual understanding and learning of translators/localizers and technical communicators, hence facilitating the translation and localization workflow.

The crucial questions are: what are the main points that both disciplines have in common, and how can knowledge about technical communication be used for translation (and vice versa)? 

During the workshop, potential synergies in the field of translation and technical communication that offer career opportunities for translators in the area of technical communication will be discussed. This is exactly one of the aspects that the TecCOMFrame project focuses on as well. During the workshop, the prototype curricula designed for the specialization of linguists and translators will be presented by the TecCOMFrame project group.

In general, the workshop will mix presentations, panel discussions, and a discussion with the audience. It addresses technical communicators, translators, language service providers and associations, as well as students from both technical communication and translation studies interested in sharing a mutual understanding on how translation and technical communication are linked.
