Google Translate vs Localization: Differences, Benefits, ...

Introduction

If you've ever needed to translate a document from English into another language, you know how important it is to get the translation right. After all, if your message isn't understood by its intended audience, chances are you'll lose an opportunity at some kind of business deal or even an entire market segment. For that reason alone, it makes sense to have your documents professionally translated by native speakers in the target language—but what about when you need something less formal? What if you just want a quick way of reading a website or blog post in another language? In these cases, machine translation can be helpful. But while machine translation has grown more accurate over time (thanks in large part to machine learning), it still can't match the quality and nuance of human translations produced by professional translators with years of experience working with both languages involved in any given project.

ESRI/GIS Location Mapping: An Overview

What is a geographic information (GIS) system?

A geographic information system (GIS) is a system for creating, managing, analyzing, and mapping various types of data. GIS ties data to a map by combining location data (where things are) with several forms of descriptive data (what things are like there). This lays the groundwork for mapping and analysis employed in science and nearly every sector. Users can utilize GIS to better comprehend trends, relationships, and the context of their location. Improved communication and efficiency, as well as better management and decision-making, are all advantages.

10 Pressure Testing Questions for your idea’s path to ...
  1. What is your project called?
    Example:
    Branding is vital to the success of any project. Your brand's name is often the first element that customers will engage with. The name must be distinct, authentic, memorable, and enduring. An original name is essential for establishing a strong brand reputation.
  2. Can you provide a brief description of your project/idea?
    Example:
    Summarize your idea in one or two paragraphs describing your project or idea. Your description should include a synopsis of project goals and objectives; stakeholders and their roles; metrics for measuring success;
    a timeline; and an estimated budget.
  3. What is the problem that you're solving?
    Example:
    All successful businesses solve a problem or make life a little easier or cost-effective, or productive for others. If you’re thinking about an idea, think about the problems that it will solve. Having a problem to solve will make your app easier to sell as a solution to that problem.
  4. How does your idea solve that problem(s)?
    Example:
    All successful businesses started off as solutions to problems:
    Uber was a new twist on the taxi industry - easier and cheaper. Netflix made online media streaming easy and reliable. Kevo made keyless entry easy, Lumosity for memory and brain health.
  5.  Can you tell us about the different users of the idea/application and how they would interact with it to solve their problem?
    Example:
    What personas represent the different user types that might use your idea/application? Personas can help you understand that different people have different needs, and assumptions and can help you identify with the user
  6. Are there any other websites, or applications available doing something similar?
    Example:
    You have a rideshare app idea that is for an upscale clientele and features luxury vehicles and other upscale services. Uber, Lyft, Gett, Curb, etc. are similar apps in this market space.
  7. Are there any substitutes to your idea?
    Example:
    Both a plane and a car offer a method of travel. On a shorter distance it may be more efficient to travel by car than by air. In that instance, a car is an adequate substitute for flying on a plane.
  8. How will people find out about your idea?
    Example:
    Will you issue a press release? Talk about the idea on social media? Create a webpage? Search Ads? Influencer/celebrity endorsement? App store Optimization?
  9. What's your funding strategy? Do you need help with funding, or financing to pay for part, or all of the development?
    Example:
    Will you fund your idea/application with personal savings, loans, credit card, friends and family? Will you find a co-founder to share the cost. Do you anticipate investigating crowdfunding as another way to fund your ideas? Maybe consider raising donations on your own website, approach angel investors for seed funding?
  10. Do you have a number, or figure, in mind that would motivate you to start development today?
    Example:
    Setting a budget to build out your idea will depend on several factors:
    • Complexity of the solution to your idea or problem to be solved
    • Hourly development rates
    • What are your priorities? Cost, Speed, Complexity?
