Cross-cultural Communication: Perspectives in Theory and Practice
Cross-Cultural Communication: Perspectives in Theory and Practice is a collection of essays that examines how practitioners can improve the acceptance of their documentation when communicating to cultures other than their own.
The essays can serve as a valuable resource for students and teachers alike as they determine ways to understand how cross-cultural communication is different and why it makes a difference. Not only do students need to be aware of the various strategies they may apply when creating documents for cross-cultural settings, they also need to see how research can apply theories from different areas - in the case of these essays, communication and rhetorical theories. Another value of the essays (particularly the Chapter 4 essay on international communication in the international standards community) is to show the students the role standards play in cross-cultural communication; standards are written by committees that follow style rules developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in Geneva. Thus, both students and practitioners can find valuable cross-cultural communication advice in these essays.
