There is a clever young man in the U.K. (no, this isn’t the beginning of a limerick, though you will find it amusing)…
…named Tom Scott, a linguist himself, who enjoys making short videos and sharing them on YouTube.
A colleague here at Medialocate recently shared one of Tom’s videos with us and we thought we’d share it with you.
We, who provide quality translation and localization as a profession, can rightfully be accused of taking our business very seriously.
We use phrases like:
- meeting international standards,
- achieving multiple ISO certifications,
- superior automation,
- workflow technology, and
- fast project completion.
And, there’s good reason why we take translation so seriously.
We’ve seen the results of translations that have gone terribly wrong.
However, there IS a lighter side of language that can be both instructive and entertaining.
Tom Scott’s video – “All The Colors, Including Grue: How Languages See Colors Differently” – is both.
If you enjoyed this video on language, you’ll likely enjoy many other Tom Scott videos here: http://www.tomscott.com/
