¿Se puede decir Kronos en español?

April 3, 2013

Rosetta StoneThe large stone tablet under bulletproof glass was the first thing to catch my attention in the British Museum. “That’s THE Rosetta Stone?” I was astonished to lay eyes on such a historic relic. For those of you who missed that day in Social Studies, the hunk of granodiorite includes the same inscription in Greek, the everyday language Egyptian language of the day called, demotic, and Egyptian hieroglyphs. In short, the Greek inscription was the key to deciphering the others. Very cool.  The Rosetta Stone crept into my head yesterday when I read this headline:

Rosetta Stone Acquires Livemocha And Expands Its Reach In The Cloud

I used Livemocha to “apprendre un peu de Français” prior to a 2011 vacation, and used the cloud acquired language skills to ask a couple young girls for directions in Paris. They giggled at me, but I got the directions. A week from now I’ll be butchering “¿Cómo llego a Estadi RCDE, Cornellà de Llobregat” in Barcelona for a Metro journey to the RCD Espanyol – Valencia fútbol match!

In today’s global economy (I’m sorry, that is such marketing-speak), language is critical to success. If you want to grow a business, it’s a big world if you can play in it. Kronos offers expanding language support as demand for our workforce management solutions grow around the world. Our small to mid-sized businesses can deploy cloud-based Workforce Ready in English, Spanish and French, while Workforce Central comes with English, French, Dutch, German, Brazilian Portuguese, Italian, Korean, Polish, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese right out of the box, or the cloud if you like

Speaking of “simplified Chinese,” (Work)Joyce will be in China next week to launch the Workforce Institute there. It’s all part of her plan for global domination. I’m sure she’ll rock it. Today she told me she can say “Hello” and “Thank You” in Chinese. 非常酷.

    There are other languages available. For example Norwegian and Swedish. Both were done by Kronos partner in Norway – InTime/VISMA and they can make them available to any Kronos customers (future support needs to be checked with the partner) for a fee.
    I also know that one of our customers converted WFC to Japanese.
