Re: surprise- a translation company doesn't understand IT
"Why translation companies should be so bad at this stuff I don't know..."
The answer is quite simple. Like many companies today, they are an IT company - but they haven't realised it yet because all the people at the top are translators. Banks are IT companies - literally every little thing they do is IT. But they haven't realised this yet because everyone on the board is a banker. Accountants are pretty much the same. There are loads and loads of examples of entire industries which should now fall under IT and therefore should be driven by IT at board level. But they aren't. Because nobody at the top as the least idea that they became an IT company over a decade ago.
