Terminology Panel:
Technical Communication – Why a standard is badly needed?

  20 min.


Terminology is a key factor for Technical Communication. So far, however, the terminology of technical communication itself has not been standardized.

This intervention focuses on the standardization project ISO WD 24183 Technical Communication – Vocabulary.

The choice of concepts for this basic vocabulary for Technical Communication is based upon a collection of clustered terms and definitions. You will get an overview of the structure and learn how you can benefit from the standard once it is published.

Target audience and potential interested persons of this intervention are professionals creating information products in the field of technical communication and those who purchase services in the field of technical communication and service providers.
