Meeting Description:

Education in Multilingual and Multimedia: Applications and Transgressions of
Standards and Norms

Multilingual communication and multimedia professionals are often unaware that
their practices are guided by various normative documents. Among these texts are
official standards (trade, industrial, technical and ergonomic) and standards
issued by such organizations as ISO. Although they may not know about the
standards, communications professionals nevertheless feel that procedures, sound
practices and known models are important.

Given that awareness of this world of norms, standards and standardization, for
various reasons, should be taught during initiation to the language professions,
we plan to hold a conference for individuals and groups who have a stake in
incorporating norms and standards into the initial and continuing education for
these professions.

Our conference will be a forum for discussing and sharing knowledge about norms
and standards for translation, writing, terminology and technology, as well as
quality assurance and control methods, tools and techniques in the fields of
writing, terminology, translation and localization.

As a corollary, education and instructor accreditation will be discussed, as
well as institutional certification and approval or recognition of degree
courses or programs. Obviously, depending on the context, there is also the
question of the role of employers and professional associations in setting de
jure standards and de facto norms.

To cover the entire subject, the conference will also feature technologies that
are used on a daily basis by communications professionals. The standards
governing them will be discussed and there will be instructive presentations.
