Bilingual babies practice lip-reading long before monolingual counterparts

Bilingual babies practice lip-reading long before monolingual counterparts | Translation & Interpreting | Scoop.it
You’re in a crowded restaurant. You can’t make out what your companion is saying. So your eyes start to drift to your dining companions' lips, to make out what they're saying over the din. That’s because when speech is hard to hear, lip-reading provides extra clues for comprehension. It turns out we all learn this skill as infants. And bilingual infants do it the more than others.

Siri learns seven new languages, plus English with new accents

Siri learns seven new languages, plus English with new accents | Translation & Interpreting | Scoop.it
The latest update for iOS 8 will reportedly be diversifying more than its emojis.

According to reports, Siri will soon be able to understand seven additional languages with the release of the iOS 8.3 beta 2. The voice assistant feature will add Russian, Danish, Dutch, Portuguese, Swedish, Thai, and Turkish to its multi-lingual vocabulary, which is expected to be released later this year.

The most interesting language update will allow Siri to interpret English with an Indian accent. As India Today reports, Indian speakers were “forced to fake an American accent to get Siri to understand their voice commands.” While watching others attempt to fake an accent can be amusing, this is sure to come as a relief in one of the largest growing markets in the world.

Recommended: Think you know Steve Jobs? Take our quiz!
The language (and accent) updates hint at Apple’s push to expand further into emerging markets like BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China). Siri understanding Portuguese could take Apple far in Brazil. And with booming sales in Asia, thanks to larger iPhone models, the tech giant obviously has its sites on markets outside of China, Japan, and South Korea by including Thai in the update.

Apple does not disclose how it chooses new languages for Siri, but market shares are likely to be the main influencer.

As ZDNet reports, the Netherlands has a relatively small population of 16.8 million residents, but saw a 7 percent increase in smart phone ownership in the forth quarter of last year. While Apple only holds 23 percent of the Dutch market, which is tiny compared to the 40 percent it holds in the US, that is a larger share than in Germany (16.9 percent), Italy (13.5 percent), and Spain (6.8 percent), which all have had their native tongues adapted to the feature.

As reported by 9to5Mac, Apple has been busy with updates. The iPhone maker intends to release iOS 8.2 sometime in March, iOS 8.3 as a public beta through its AppleSeed program in mid-March, iOS 8.4 and its new music streaming service during the summer, and iOS 9 in the fall. Got all that?

10 ways to generate publicity for your freelance translation business

To get the word out about your business and your expertise, you can use publicity and public relations to gain a more prominent position in the marketplace. There are two ways to spread information about your business: publicity and advertising.

Publicity is something someone else writes or says about you and your company when you do something noteworthy and interesting. There are many business benefits from good publicity, but the most important is that it is much more effective than advertising when it comes to visibility. A media campaign is just a plan for how you will use publicity for your business.

Here is what publicity can do for your freelance translation business:

Bring traffic to your websiteGet people talking about you and your businessPosition you as an expert within your industryBoost awareness of your brandEstablish your credibilityMake potential clients aware of you...
