Re: Good Translators
@srulof1 yes, some terms carry over between lanaguages, though the spelling and pronunciation may vary, especially for lanagues that use different alphabets.

Re: Good Translators
@Ariella I would imagine it would be difficult to teach "technical terms" in other languages, however you would think some technical terms would be uninterpretable and would just have a universal meaning for all technology providers.

Re: Good Translators
@DonBrowne I totally agree. I one time thought my written Italian was good enough to translate a manual for some kind of technology for a company in the U.S. Even my Italian relatives couldn't do it. In the end, after two weeks of working on it, I never got paid because they said the translation was too "literal."

Translation
The funny thing about translating is that sometimes the true meaning gets lost during translation. In addition, more translation uses proper language and does not translate into conversational style and tone which is another barrier when translating content.

How does SCTE determine which languages to translate the materials? I am curious which languages are the most widely spoken globally. Will SCTE use AR/VR to provide cable training?

Re: Good Translators
@Ariella in my field to survive parties you must know how to mix your drinks also how to prepare great cup of coffee to impress :) but I said to the kids in the field you are entering you must do everything what your Motherland and Queen ask of you... but you must be prepared, know and have skills to do it right and survive... outsmart your oponents... and came home to see your family not in body bag or as ashes in diplomatic pouch... but preparation is a key... in my life time I came accoss bosses whom give me orders what never make sense, asking me to break a law, or benefit enemy as the end game... I always ask for written orders... as a solution and to make sure my back side covered... one of my bosess whom is latvian - canadian when he seen I could enteract with Jewish customers  with out translator during my security duties as I do comprechend Hebrew... said to my face - "I hate k...s"  it doesn't bother me as in this world you have many people whom should not be in position of power...  I just did my job - best of my ability... most of my bosess never read "Art of War" or strugle with concept to outsmart your enemy - you should never hate your enemy... 

ps: my late family friend whom was a father figure in my life was a Jewish gentleman whom build a create one of the best multicultural hospital in toronto... I miss him dearly... I do remember him in my catholic prayers... and he teach me never bother yourself with haters...

Re: Good Translators
@batye is the idea of training as a bartender or barista to be able to go "undercover" in such jobs or to just learn about people fromthat particular context? Considering that people tend to talk more when under the influene of alcohol, there may be a distinct advantage for a spy who tends a bar.

Re: Good Translators
But wouldn't it be worderful to have a "translator" that would actually be smart enought to know not only the normal vocabulary but the technical jargon and idioms of any language. That would certainly take a bite out of needing personal training.

Re: Good Translators
The plans for foreign language training of course makes a lot of sense. And it surely isn't all that easy to translate technical manuals to another language. Remember those days of consumer electronics manuals translated from Janpanese to English?

Re: Good Translators
@Ariella yes it very smart and during my security work I keep telling my boss (he was ex-employee of the Air America) about to win the wars we must copy best way of what our enemies doing from ground up... let say our RCMP have 26-week training program after you get training while on the job/bit by senior partner... KGB/FSB have 3 years basic traing plus 2 to 4 years specialization training after, including language emersion and we talking not English, French, German, Italian, Spanish we talkng specific dialects like  Kyirong-Kagate dialect... We won Cold War but we lost the battle... if we do not smarten up and train our kids better than our new Asian Axis do... we gonna have they paratropers landing on our roofs in suburbia... as they subs already setting up "scence" listening  posts in our north... 

from what I know we are years behind in the techical terms/military slang languages training...  

ps: some of my friends kid's finishing universtity in North America ilearning international affairs planing they future as Embassy or Consulate worker's.. they have no idea about books I recommend them to read and memorise... like Passport Report W. G. Hill and id checking guide both version US/Canada and International... also I told them to get cources at private schools like bartender and barista, drone operator, small arms training... do volunteering at community centre as Russian-Jewish ESL as a teachers to learn and see the way his students act and communicate with one to other, including hand movments and face & body movments...  as in my point we are sending  toothless cubs  in the wolf's lair unprepared...  having certificate of passing Russian languadge exam do not offer real protection from the real "Putin Russia" for our Embassy or Consulate workers... I do not see anyone as enemy... as I accept anyone and anything in this life... I know life a very little and seen only few things of human nature during war ...  in my books better to be prepared... instead of bohica...

It wasn't long ago that TV was ranked by subscribers as the most important service in the bundle provided by their communications service provider (CSP). Recent research indicates that for nearly three quarters of subscribers, broadband is now the most important service. Broadcast TV is the most important service to only 15% of North American consumers, replaced by OTT video streaming platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Disney+. In addition, many different competitors are moving aggressively to stake a claim in consumers' homes.

In 2020, CSPs need to fight back by transforming their business models, which are becoming more reliant on a single source of revenue: fixed broadband services.

This webinar will focus on helping CSPs transform their business models by placing a firm focus on delivering a sensational subscriber experience and by offering compelling new services that generate value for subscribers. These actions will reinforce the CSP's strategic position in the home network and position themselves for growth in the next decade.

Key topics include:

  • Being the first to market with WiFi 6 technology, in response to consumer purchases of new devices over the holidays;
  • Having the insights needed to proactively resolve issues, often before your subscribers even know that there are issues;
  • Providing help desk agents with the visibility they need to resolve common subscriber issues more quickly;
  • Delivering a mobile app, in response to consumer demands for the ability to do some things themselves, rather than having to call technical support; and
  • Addressing consumer concerns around device security, privacy and control with enhanced security and parental controls.
