English to Chinese translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - IT (Information Technology) / CIO
English term or phrase:teller
What it'll take to get there is dedication. Many CIOs bring back tidbits from informal encounters with customers outside the office. "I heard from my neighbor that our bank's branch in town could really use a Spanish-speaking teller..." That's helpful, but limited. To be most valuable, collecting customer intelligence must be a sustained and focused effort that permeates not just the IT group but the whole company, says Michael Capone, CIO of Automatic Data Processing (ADP), a $9.9 billion human resources and payroll provider.
Explanation: Tellers, it seems to me, refer only to employees in a bank. And in the passage given by Clearwater, a teller is obviously a person, not a machine (even if machines now do much of the work a human teller does).
I put 窗口 in parentheses because that term is also often used.
A check in dictionaries (such as Collins Cobuild, Merrian-Webster, Far EASt English-Chinese) specified (asnd implied) that a teller works with a bank, and at a teller window.
