    IAC-17 — 68th International Astronautical Congress

    E8. IAA MULTILINGUAL ASTRONAUTICAL TERMINOLOGY SYMPOSIUM

    This symposium, organised by the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA), will review the progress made in multilingual space terminology and its impact on international cooperation in space. Terminology is a key issue for a better understanding among people using various languages and dialects. Consecutive or simultaneous translation does not remove the risk of ambiguity during technical meetings and accuracy in terminology is essential during all phases of cooperation. The session will address issues such as standardisation of definitions in space science and technology. The specific character of emerging space countries will also be discussed.
