Anthology on Technical Communication

tekom Annual Gift 2004

Technical Communication – international

Jörg Hennig, Marita Tjarks-Sobhani

Does the reputation of technical communication reflect its actual significance? Are technical communicators well trained enough to perform their important tasks adequately? What are their salaries? What are the conditions set by the national legal framework? What are the prospects of technical communication?

This collection, for the first time, puts the answers to these and other important questions into an international perspective. Competent authors offer a survey of the status and prospects of technical communication for 17 countries in Europe, Asia, America and Australia.
