No Feb 4

At least I don't think so. I'm not sure what it is. I'm guessing it means something akin to localisation - in other words, ensuring that the texts are culturally appropriate for the target audience. That kind of situation doesn't often arise for me.

I might just point out to a high-end caterer that they can leave the Munster off the cheese platter if the menu is for American insurance agents, does that count?

Yes Feb 4

Of course, but I did not have a lot. Sometimes they are indirect.

Yes, unsolicited ... on CVs Feb 4

Yes

Unsolicited

On CVs/resumes.

20 years telling the Spanish not to put their age or marital status on their resumes :/

And to make it look professional! Wow. I've seen CEOs here with resumes that look like they were written by a 15 year old.

On the bright side... 15 year olds here are not attending seminars on how to write a resume, as in the US

Why?


Because it's not necessary information and can lead to discrimination.
For ex: married woman, going on 30, might get pregnant brrrrrrrrr.

When I interpret for the immigration and the respondent/applicant explains that the "masked men entered his/her home (mascații au intrat în casă), it is helpful to explain that the "masked men" are the police special forces, not random masked men.
