Terminologi er af vital betydning for en vellykket kommunikation, for virksomheder, for forskningen og for udviklingen af nye ideer. Terminologi er en forudsætning for, at fx lovtekster og regulativer, produktinformation, private og offentlige informationssystemer, standarder, marketingbrochurer og forskningsrapporter kan formidle et budskab korrekt. Som et resultat heraf har terminologiske ressourcer og aktiviteter en betragtelig strategisk og økonomisk betydning i samfundet.

The Inmates are Running the STC

The latest on the STC Transformation blog mentions that of the thousands of STC members, only 1% are contributing their views to the blog. So, they wonder, what do the other 99% have to say? One commentor thinks that this 99% are silent because they're happy with their memberships. I think this group has probably just forgotten they're members.

The STC Crisis: The Take of a "Young" Writer

As a “young” technical writer, I thought I might share some of my feelings on the STC crisis. First, a little background on me. I knew while I was in college that I wanted to be a technical writer after graduation. I switched to an English major for that purpose, and picked classes that gave me a “technical communication emphasis”. I joined STC while I was in college because I wanted to connect with people in my field. I got a chapter scholarship to attend a regional STC conference, and had a great time meeting people who did for a living what I was studying.
