Abstract:

This volume offers a state-of-the-art view of research into interdisciplinarity,
language and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) by providing
an overview of teaching proposals within a university context.
Interdisciplinarity is understood here as how language expresses the
discourse and lexis of specialised knowledge in science, technology and the
professions. Language helps in the creation of these different fields and
constitutes a strategic tool that, if harnessed correctly, will facilitate
competitiveness on an international level in order to boost technological,
scientific, economic and educational growth. Interdisciplinarity, language and
ICTs should be taken into account to address the real needs of industry,
commerce and translation in educational institutions and the professions.
The contributions in this volume address themes that are crucial to the
demands of modern society: intercultural business communications, one of
the most challenging areas of specialised discourse and commerce; ICT and
specialised translation, a current issue of the utmost relevance; terminology
applied to translation; language acquisition in virtual environments; training
interpreters through ICT; exploring the commercial needs of language
industries; corpus-based research and ICT applications in specialised
dictionaries; university e-learning courses; and the state of research on
specialised languages in Latin America.
