Sentiment analysis of technical writing and the language sector

Kevin De Coninck ,Dries Debackere


How do people feel about languages and the language sector in general and technical writing in particular? We can answer these questions by means of sentiment analysis. Based on the results, we can also reflect on improving this sentiment in order to make both languages and language related professions more attractive to users, learners and job seekers, and to strengthen the position of both the language sector in general and technical writing in particular.
