Semantech is a combination of the words semantics and tech.
Semantics is the scientific study of meanings and the development of meanings of words. Translation, editing and technical writing involve so much more than just words. Anyone can do a word-for-word translation, for example, but really understanding the text, and accurately translating the meaning into idiomatic language could mean the difference between a mediocre or even poor translation and a good translation.
Tech stands for technical. In general, people tend to think of computers and technology when they hear the word technical. However, technical writing, translation and editing involves texts that either (1) instruct the reader in how to do something or (2) explain a concept. Therefore, within this meaning, tech refers to everything from editing a recipe to writing a standard operating procedure to translating an insurance contract.
