    Title

    Multilingual Astronautical Terminology

    Description

    This session, organized 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 standardization of definitions in space science and technology. The specific character of emerging space countries will also be discussed.
