> Your colleagues should improve their english to prevent loss of productivity by shitty translations

That's a pretty arrogant approach, our working language is German.

Our working language is German, too. That's why we force our international clients from the aerospace and medical industry to accept that we only communicate in German, including all of our product documentation. We also force our suppliers to deliver all data sheets and other product documentation, including support, in German language, else we refuse to use their products. It was quite hard to find a supplier for a German C toolchain, but we finally succeeded. That's how our code looks like:

#einschluß <standardbücherei.kopf> #einschluß <standardeingabeausgabe.kopf> #einschluß <zeichenketten.kopf> ganzezahl hauptprogramm(ganzezahl parameteranzahl, zeichen ** paraemet +erliste) { schreibezeichenkette("Hallo Welt, wir sprechen nur Deutsch!"); funktionsrückgabe 0; }

Now, we just have to find someone who is able to deliver an ARM-based microcontroller will full German product documentation. Or Z80, perhaps? 8051, anyone? Hell, we would accept a 4004 clone if only the product documentation is in German.

Best viewed with a good irony detector.


Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)
