How to Be a Better Business Blogger

With blogging becoming so much more important for businesses — both large and small, it is vital to make your blog as good and effective as possible. Consider the 50 tips in the infographic below.

The infographic was developed by Cent for Your Escape from 9 to 5:

“There are plenty of blogging tips all over the Web. Unfortunately, they are all spread across multiple Web sites. I wanted to create a list of awesome blogging tips from the experts all in one place. I chose 5 expert bloggers, picked 10 of their best tips, and came up with a list of 50 of the best blogging tips. These blogging tips will be useful for beginners and pros alike. I chose the experts with varying perspectives, so the tips are not focused on the same area or too generic. For example, one expert provides blogging tips for a business blog, another provides tips to improve Web site traffic, and another provides quick blog improvement tips.”

What Are the Toughest Languages to Translate?

As firms go global, language translation becomes more complex and time-consuming. This is an important topic for the Zarb School, too, given the diversity of the student body, alumni, and faculty.

Dana Translation notes that:

“In today’s global environment and economy, interesting and important  come in many languages. People and organizations often need to unlock the meaning within those documents with a perfect translation that conveys the intent of the document.”

“Many people don’t realize that languages don’t have a direct word-to-correlation, so a good translation requires an understanding of the nuances and shades of meaning in each language. Rules of grammar and the way people express themselves using figures of speech vary from culture to culture, and words with the same meaning may have different connotations that can slant the feeling that a translation conveys if chosen unwisely. That’s why machine translations so often go wrong, and why it pays to have a comprehensive translation service on your side.”

According to Dana, these are the hardest languages to translate.
