H. SNEAK PEEK: NEXT ISSUE OF MultiLingual

The next issue of MultiLingual features a focus on CEE and Russia. If you are a subscriber, this issue will be at your fingertips early March. Not a subscriber? Subscribe now with our special offer to MultiLingual News readers. All subscribers have full access to our digital archive going back to 2006.

H.1. Locale and culture in Slavic localization by Elena Rudeshko, Maryna Babich, Lyuba Lazarenko & Katia Kosovan

Companies based in Central Europe, which long ago entered the European Union, remain attractive destinations for doing business due to lower costs and, at the same time, geographical proximity to Western Europe. This benefit, however, is true for Eastern Europe as well, where the cost of living is the lowest in Europe. . . . Not only has the market share of Eastern European companies grown, but the market itself has become more diversified.

H.2. CEE economies and the language industry by Jerzy Nedoma

The peculiarities of CEE, although they are important, cannot obscure the region’s economic benefits, which are the most important from the point of view of the translation market and the broader business market.

H.3. Bringing a new tone to CEE product localization by Alfred Hellstern, Katerina Gasova & Libor Safar

There is a major shift happening in the style, tone and terminology used in recent software such as the new Microsoft products: the Windows 8 platform, Office 2013 and Windows Phone 8. Microsoft looked specifically at the situation with Central European languages — how these are developing and what translation strategies they may have to adopt to stay current.
