As translation of technical documents becomes commonplace, and as translation becomes more automated, the roles of translator and technical communicator appear to be converging. This paper examines the trend revealed from recent surveys, and it suggests further research to determine if the trend is likely to continue. The  paper also provides recommendations for academic programs interested in adjusting to the trend.
