What Do We Learn about Technical Communication in Hungary through My Students and My Hungarian Colleagues: An Initial Investigation
Ding, Daniel D.
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v48 n1 p53-80 Jan 2018
Very few articles exist that document technical communication in Hungary. My Fulbright research reveals two general points: First, technical communication pedagogy stresses correct use of professional terms and phrases in technical translations or technical articles for fictional audiences. Second, it does not emphasize the importance of specifying target audiences in students' work; similarly, Hungarian companies, perhaps driven by oral culture in communication, do not target at any specific audiences in written communication. In this respect, education and practice seems to shape each other. More research is needed to provide more elements to help us understand technical communication in Hungary.
