Discusses the challenges of intercultural communication in engineering, technical, and related professional fields

Given today's globalized technical and engineering environment, intercultural communication is an essential topic for engineers, other technical professionals, and technical communicators to learn. Engineering programs, in particular, need to think about how to address the ABET requirement for students to develop global competence and communication skills. This book will help readers learn what intercultural communication is like in the workplace?which is an important first step in gaining intercultural competence.

Through narratives based on the real experiences of working professionals, Negotiating Cultural Encounters: Narrating Intercultural Engineering and Technical Communication covers a range of design, development, research, and documentation projects?offering an authentic picture of today's international workplace.

This collection of narratives:

  • Responds to the need for updated firsthand information in intercultural communication and will help us prepare workplace professionals
  • Covers various topics such as designing e-commerce websites, localizing technical documentation, and translating workplace safety materials
  • Provides hands-on studies of intercultural professional communication in the workplace
