Technological communication and knowledge access in the 21st century demands written composition skills from users. Computers have not only introduced new ways of generating and organizing writing, but have also incorporated a textual component to social relations. As a consequence, a conceptual and research evolution on writing that integrates cognitive, linguistic, socio-politic and cultural perspectives of written language has been shown in the last decade. This integration of perspectives has allowed us to understand that 21st century societies are essentially composed of computerized and multicultural writers, that is: a) particular subjects who develop complex and integrated cognitive processes with technological abilities.b) citizens of a broad community who develop multilingual writing competences

Keywords: Multilingual Writing, Cognitive Processes, Intercultural Strategies
