tw telecom Manhattan: A strong network to unite people and institutions connecting them to the World| New York Real Estate Journal Online | Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty | Scoop.it

It is very appropriate to characterize New York City as "strong." The city is resilient, its people are tough, and its spirit is indomitable.

 

A strong city like New York needs a strong communications network to unite its people and institutions and then connect them to the world. More than nearly any other metropolitan area, New York City has an unlimited appetite for fast, reliable, and secure networks.

 

The tw telecom Manhattan team is proud to serve enterprises throughout the area by collaborating with them to develop customized telecom solutions that meet their needs and solve their challenges.

 

In addition to tw telecom's strong business ethernet network and services portfolio, the local team's ongoing dedication to cultivating and maintaining key relationships with some of the city's top real estate firms and property managers is instrumental in their success. Key partners of tw telecom Manhattan include ABS Partners Real Estate, The Paramount Group, Newmark Grubb Knight Frank (NGKF), and several more.

 

tw telecom Manhattan has embarked on a number of initiatives to focus on showing how highly reliable telecommunications providers contribute to the success of the commercial real estate landscape.

 

tw telecom is a strong participant in instrumental city-wide programs, such as ConnectNYC and WiredNYC. ConnectNYC seeks to expand high-speed broadband connectivity throughout the city and the outer boroughs, and does so by awarding small and medium-sized businesses and organizations with fiber connectivity directly to their place of business.

Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty's insight:

As everyone knows, these days there’s no lack of food or drink in our “little” part of town. Old favorites like Sunny Point Café still bring droves of people who wait in line for the most amazing local breakfast and foodies from around the country get reservations weeks in advance to enjoy the incredible concoctions dished up the chefs at The Admiral.

Poor translations offend foreign investors | Real Estate Business Online

Poor translations offend foreign investors | Real Estate Business Online | Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty | Scoop.it

Agents who are attempting to tap into the Chinese investor market may be causing offence with their poorly translated copy, according to a translation company.

According to Leo Lui, chief translator for My Translator, using machine-based translation such as Google Translate runs the risk of not only confusing prospective buyers, but also offending them as the translation can sometimes be incomprehensible to the Chinese.

“Unfortunately, computers don't really understand human languages, so your Chinese translation may end up being very inaccurate," he said. "Computers do a fairly good job of translating individual words, but have serious limitations when translating complex sentences. Knowing about these limitations, however, can help you get the best Chinese translation possible.”

As an example, Mr Lui supplied the following English text:

"The main bedroom leads directly through sliding doors onto the pool area, the second and third bedroom will accommodate double beds, the bathroom is central and there is also an additional separate toilet. Outside there is a double bay shed complete with power and lighting that has been used as a workshop, there is accommodation for two cars, the owners have the place in excellent condition, a few steps lead up to the level yard from the pool area."

The text was translated through a computer-based translation program. However, the text read from a Chinese perspective shows a sentence with completely different meaning:

"The master bedroom, a direct result of the pool area through sliding doors, the second and third bedroom can accommodate a double bed, bathroom is central, and have extra separate toilet. Outside power and lighting complete a Double Bay shed has been used as a shop, two car accommodation, the owners are in excellent condition, there are several steps leading to the pool area of the horizontal ones."

Russell Robertson, CEO of My Translator, said it was only a matter of time before an agent was prosecuted for inaccurate description caused by poor translation.

“It is far safer to use human translation over machine translation and I don’t think it will be long before a real estate agent or office in Australia is prosecuted for misleading information appearing online using incorrect translation from a machine,” he said.

#Jerusalem

Elizabeth Bitgood's curator insight, March 14, 2014 11:35 AM

This article and picture points out just how hard it is to “solve” the problems in Israel.  The constant overlapping of buildings on holy sites complicates the issues more than anything political ever could.  Belief is one of the biggest driving forces for conflict in the world and this illustration reminds us of that.

Tracy Galvin's curator insight, May 4, 2014 1:54 PM

In some of the oldest civilizations on earth, religion is the most important aspect of life. There will always be extreme conflicts in these ancient areas all over religion.
