About the ITC SIG
The International Technical Communication SIG of STC is the professional organization focused on localization, translation, and cross cultural communication for technology.
The ITC SIG offers members the opportunity to work together toward a better understanding of the international marketplace for technical communication.
Members collaborate on Global Talk by contributing articles and news on localization, translation, and cross cultural communication. Members are invited to join the email list.
SIG leaders are working on global membership initiatives to expand STC membership and service to members worldwide.
At the STC annual conference, the ITC SIG hosts face-to-face meetings for members and prospective members and sponsors sessions and activities with vendors and related organizations. Activities have included the International Pavilion to showcase speakers and topics of interest to SIG members and all attendees, as well as progressions, networking lunches, and business meetings.
