How do you think that a team's member could effectively encourage a ProjMan to organize work and tasks?
Thanks, very interesting!

Poor standards of localisation Sep 30, 2010

I believe a good translator can handle a wide variety of topics. It seems that localisation is done by IT professionals rather than the linguists and that's the reason for poor linguistic standards of Polish localisation. Ideally, IT experts should work alongside translators or they should proof-read one another. Failing that I believe translators should be doing localisation rather than IT experts. The technical people are by and large not known for their linguistic flair. What are your thoughts on that?

Tom, that was just great. Sep 30, 2010

I took notes on your presentation, and filled 5 pages. I learned a lot from you and just wanted to thank you for sharing that.
