As intriguingly varied as world languages are, linguists agree that they share certain structural factors that broach continents and cultures. For decades, the roots of this phenomenon have been debated and explored; a study out of the University of Rochester sheds some light on a potential explanation.

With the recent Sony hack making the news, it’s hard not to wonder about the safety and confidentiality of information we move across the web. At ALTA Language Services, we interact with clients ranging from government agencies to law firms who need to translate sensitive, confidential data on a daily basis. People often don’t realize how difficult it can be to control this data in a world where crowd-sourcing, cloud-sourcing, machine translation, and other new technologies have entered the market...

The Finnish tourist board, Visit Finland, has created the ‘Finngenerator’ – an online portal that translates names into Nordic monikers which reference epic poems and ice-coated landscapes.

‘John Smith’, for example, becomes ‘Tapio Hongisto’ – which translates loosely as ‘Ancient king of the forest’ (Tapio) ‘Home made of pine trees’ (Hongisto).
Have a try and find your inner Finn by changing your name. Just type your name here and let the generator tell you what you would be called if you were a Finn. #finngenerator

For 30+ years I have been teaching - lecturing - course writing - examining - interpreting - translating etc. in foreign languages. I had to do one of their tests this week to get a translation job, and they marked me as mediocre, but will not show me why they marked me thus.

I have my degree in two Romance languages. I've also lived abroad in countries that speak the languages, and I have even taught for 3 years. Needless to say, I've taken dozens of proficiency exams for several academically accredited institutions, and passed them (I had to to or else I wouldn't have been permitted to attend university if France, Spain, or Mexico). However, the exams proctored by this company are absolutely ridiculous, to say the least. The questions are completely random and have nothing to do with reality, one's life, or one's profession. I work in the travel industry, yet they asked me questions like: Why does the yellow bird sing? Why do people use spoons? Describe your kitchen stove in detail. These are ACTUAL "questions" they asked me! And if your answer isn't at least two full paragraphs, they ask you to elaborate further! HOW MUCH CAN I REALLY TALK ABOUT A SPOON? I still don't understand why my company uses ALTA. I know so many NATIVE speakers who cannot pass these exams. How is it possible to FAIL an exam that tests one's ability to speak the language they have spoken and been educated in for their ENTIRE LIFE??? There is something very wrong with this language company's methods. I would NEVER recommend them! They are a disgrace to the language education community.
