Shining Products and Blind StartUp Founders

Many IT products start with brilliant ideas, and the idea is to help people live better lives. For the most part, this is a good kickoff for starting and maintaining a new business.

What’s in a Word?

  When you meet people that speak multiple languages, very often we think that it's quite easy for them to perform translations from one language to another. After all, they have a mastery of the various languages, so it must be quite easy, right? Well, I feel I do a terrible job at it, even if it's not necessarily recognizable to all.
