And there are a lot of those on the streets, I assure you!

 

Maybe that's also the reason why only a few drivers use their blinker lights early if at all.

What is a " chief evangelist?"And what about " trafficer "

 

Example for "chief evangelist": 25 years ago Microsoft had the problem that a lot of software was written by American programmers, and then Localisation Specialists would translate/adapt it for other markets like France or Germany. The problem was that a lot of the programs just couldn't be translated because of hardcoded English text, textboxes were too small for the longer German terminology, sorting in the french version of a program was broken as the programmers didn't care for Á à â and so on.

 

So, a guy became "chief evangelist localisation" to preach the Do's and Don'ts in writing localisable code.

 

Trafficer: In marketing, when you place an ad, you want as many potential clients to see it as possible. For example placing an ad for cigarettes in a health magazine might have quite some reach and is seen by a lot of people, but it doesn't generate traffic, as readers of health magazines are very likely not interested in smoking, they're not potential customers. So, a trafficer is somebody in marketing who optimizes the traffic by analyzing the market and placing ads smart not stupid (as in the example above).

The blinkers (indicaters) in Germany are only to confirm that the steering is on full lock.

For many cars they are an optional extra which are not purchased.

I saw this article today about trendy job titles in Germany (always in English to make them sound more important ! ).

In an Apple store you have a guru. Just look for a fat guy with belly and long hair with glasses. Yep. You found him.

Not just Germany it's the same here in Australia.
