1. tcworld:

tcworld is an annual conference and exhibition held in Stuttgart, Germany. It is one of the world's largest events for technical communication, technical documentation and localisation professionals.

This conference brings together experts, professionals and vendors of tools and technologies related to technical communication. Participants can attend talks, workshops and information sessions on the latest trends, technologies and best practices in the field of technical documentation.

2. tekom:

tekom is a German professional association for communication and documentation technicians. Officially, the organisation is called Gesellschaft für Technische Kommunikation - tekom Deutschland e.V. (German Association for Technical Communication - tekom Germany).

This association is dedicated to promoting technical communication and providing resources, training and guidance for professionals in this field. They offer certification programmes for technical documentation technicians and organise events, including the tcworld conference.

Both organisations are interconnected and play a significant role in the technical communication industry, providing a space for the exchange of knowledge and experience between professionals and companies involved in the field.”

Due to the nature of the conference, translation professionals are among one of its target audiences. AbroadLink's presentation will focus on the linguistic requirements of the regulations from the translators' perspective, both from a commercial and a purely technical point of view.

As a translation company, one of AbroadLink's goals is to continue to expand its database of highly specialised translators in the medical field, one of the fundamental and highly technical specialities for the translation of many medical devices.

The tcworld conference is held annually in Stuttgart, Germany. According to its organisers, it brings together more than 4,000 professionals from the sector. This year it will be held from 14 to 16 November. AbroadLink's presentation will be in English under the title The Meaning of MDR Language Requirements in Translation. It will take place at 3pm on 14 November in room C7.2. If you're in Stuttgart, we look forward to seeing you there!
