Speaking the same language
Terminology is the bread and butter of technical communication. Our online terminology database can help you to find the right technical terms.
Terminology of Technical Communication
Developing a terminology for technical communication is the declared objective of the tekom as a professional association. All interested parties will be able to access and even shape this terminology.
The tekom founded the Working Group "Terminology of Technical Communication" for this purpose. Up to now, this Working Group has created a basic set of terms from the field of technical communication.
Here, you can find an overview of the English terms (preferred, admitted, do not use). Further specifications can be found in the online terminology database.
Our Working Group is continuously working on expanding and improving the terminology database. We are looking forward to receiving your new proposals and suggestions for changes to existing entries. Contributions are welcome. Please send your suggestions to Terminology(at)tekom.de.
By submitting your proposal, you grant tekom a right of use, e.g. to definitions you have drawn up yourself.
