3rd International Conference on Maritime Terminology
Communication and Globalization

The 3.rd International Conference is a sequel of the events held, in
1998, in Brussels (http://www.termisti.refer.org/nauterm/nauten.htm),
and in 2000, in Turku
(http://www.utu.fi/erill/mkk/English/conf_mariterm2.html), on the same
subject. In previous Conferences particular attention was paid to
Issues in Communication and Translation" and to "Dictionaries and

Goals
Within a global world, communication tends increasingly monolingual,
putting in jeopardy other languages survival as languages of
scientific and technical communication. This is the case even for
languages that once played a strong role in international
communication in scientific and technical domains, as it was the case
of Portuguese in what concerns sea sciences and technologies.
- What is nowadays the situation of specialized communication in the
domains of maritime sciences and/or technologies?
- Is this situation similar in all maritime subjects (such as
navigation, shipbuilding, maritime security, law, oceanography)?
- How did we arrive to the present situation?
- Must countries silently submit to linguistic globalization?
- Which (dis)advantages may rise from linguistic globalization?
- Are there any alternatives?
These are some of the subjects to be discussed during the 3rd.
International Conference on Maritime Terminology. This Conference
intends to put together not only linguists, termilogists and
translators, but also those who need to communicate in their daily
activity in a global world.
