As tekom's members became increasingly international, longing for an international association, tekom Europe was founded in 2013. The two founding members are tekom Deutschland and COM&TEC Italy.
tekom Deutschland and COM&TEC Italy agreed to take the step of creating a European organization in order to have greater representation and develop locally, via national communities, to bring together and represent technical communicators.
The two founding and corporate members and country organizations set the beginning in motion: Germany, Italy, Austria, Romania, Turkey, and France.
Using a medical device as a non-medical professional is often stressful; whether you have to inject yourself with insulin because your blood sugar is off, take a sick child's temperature or perform dialysis during a break, stress is a factor. This stress only increases if you're unsure about what exactly you need to do.
