The Language Competence And The It&C


  • Cornelia DUMITRU

    () (Institute of National Economy)


The present paper is a brief introduction into the new challenges posed to language competencies from the perspective of information and communication technologies and of the knowledge society. It emphasises the importance of a common yet multilingual world wide web with shared understanding of concepts, as well as the need of improving the productivity and efficiency of translators/interpreters by making use of new developments of the translation technologies for human languages, considering the fast growing industry of translation due to globalisation.
