Finnish Technical Communications Society
The Finnish Technical Communications Society (FTCS, usually known by its Finnish abbreviation STVY) aims to promote the profession and the field of technical communication, enhance professional, national and international co-operation, and provide training for both members and non-members of the society.
Anyone who works in technical communication – writers, designers, translators, coordinators, illustrators, editors, managers, teachers, students and various others working in the area – can join the society.
FTCS is a virtual society that has no premises of its own. We work in our members’ offices and cubicles. For our members we aim to arrange webinars, local events, and a larger seminar biannually. We have an active Facebook group for relaying news and jobs to our members.
We co-operate closely with the technical communications programmes at the Universities of Tampere, Vaasa and Oulu, and also with companies that are in the business or that hire technical communication professionals.
No seminar in 2020
Due to the current situation with COVID-19, we have decided to cancel our 2020 seminar. We aim to arrange a live stream on the seminar theme later this year.
