trans-kom Special Issue related to ILKR 2017 "Industry 4.0 meets Language and Knowledge Resources"

Recently, in technical communication new topics have come to the fore, such as "Information 4.0", "Linked (Open) Data" and "Augmented Reality", just to name a few. It seems to be clear that the future will bring about new ways of producing, presenting and consuming technical content, not least due to the widespread use of mobile devices. An overarching question is what research in the fields of translation and technical communication can contribute to all that at the interface between the industry 4.0 world and the language and knowledge resources world.

Since there is a pressing need for academic reflection on this, the following topics should be explored further in a dedicated trans-kom Special Issue (to be published in June 2018).

trans-kom is an academic journal for translation and technical communication research published solely on the Internet. trans-kom publishes research findings and contributions to academic discourse on subjects concerning translation and interpreting, technical communication, language for special purposes, terminology, and related fields.
