Technical translation (and technical terminology) encompasses the translation of special language texts. 1. "Style and Register" covers clarity of style, culture-specific and author-reader conventions and expectation. 2. "Special Applications" deals with the contribution of translation to the dissemination of science. 3. "Training and Autodidactic Approaches for Technical Translators" translators must master a broad range of frequently unanticipated topics, as well as linguistic competence. 4. "Text Analysis and Text Typology as Tools for Technical Translators" focuses attention on text typology and SGML in human translation and CAT. 5. "Translation-Oriented Terminology Activities" explores the different aspects of terminology: knowledge management, language planning, terminology resources and representation of concept systems.
