The first joint workshop by TecCOMFrame / tekom Europe / EMT / LindWeb, "Translating Europe", which took place at the tcworld conference, provided proof of the necessity of common understanding and learning methods shared by translators/localizers and technical communicators.
Just a few days before the annual tekom conference and tcworld conference, the members of the new tekom Europe Advisory Board Professional Development and Training came together on October 22 for their initial meeting in order to define strategic goals.
This year again, approximately 4,300 participants received current specialist knowledge at first hand. Besides the classic topics of technical communication, Intelligent Information and, in particular, the application of the newly developed standard iiRDS of the tekom Working Group on Information 4.0 were in focus at the tcworld conference on October 24-26.
Many translators are involved in the field of technical translation, many of whom are in the field of technical communication or software localization. And technical communication is experiencing an increasing need for localization and translation services.
