#003 Lost in Translation, part 1

Season #1

Olivia is interviewing Ama Zbarcea, legal expert, communication specialist, polyglot.

Ama is not an engineer, but as a legal expert, her weapon of choice is the English language. Ama has an international background regarding her personal life, and she has worked with people from various cultures. On top of that: she knows from experience what it means to be 'lost in translation'.

During part 1 of a 2 episode long interview, Ama and Olivia cover the differences between US English and British English, how not to ruin the 1st impression at the minefield of international business communication, and why behaviour is more important than grammar (egalitarian vs hierarchical cultures).
