Short Description

The fourth European Academic Colloquium on Technical Communication (EAC) was held in the Estrel Congress & Messe Center in Berlin, Germany on April 13, 2016. This annual conference organized by tekom Europe is targeted at members of the European academic community who teach and carry out research in the area of technical communication or related fields, such as translation, multilingual communication, localization, terminology, and information management. This volume will keep you up to date on the latest trends in the field.

About the book

About 30 participants from 12 countries had many fruitful discussions and exchanges that contributed to the success of the conference and made it truly international in its scope. The growing number of participants demonstrates the popularity of the EAC among scholars working in the broad field of technical communication for sharing ideas and findings with colleagues from across Europe. The goal of this year’s edition was to establish a strong research network that blends expertise from technical communication with adjacent domains such as writing, terminology, and translation, in order to address research topics that tap into the shared features of the disciplines. The disciplines are viewed as a continuum, which opens up the opportunity to integrate research on e.g. scientific writing and technical translation with research on technical communication.
